"The ultimate status symbol for the wannabe executive. Let the world know that you're not just a middle-manager anymore. You're a middle-manager who's financially crippled himself with a car he can't afford. Leverage the dream today."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Übermacht Oracle XS (formerly named "Oracle") is a four-door luxury sedan in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It was known as Oracle in GTA IV as well as GTA V before the Heists Update.


Grand Theft Auto IV

"Automatic Arrogance."
―Oracle advertising slogan in GTA IV
The Oracle is a four-door sedan which assumes the general design and role previously inherited by the Sentinel in the 3D Universe (the HD Universe's Sentinel is redesigned into a 2-door compact executive coupe). However it is now a full-size luxury sedan, rather than mid-size in the previous Sentinel.

The Oracle resembles a cross between the BMW 7 Series E65 and the BMW 5 Series E60 with doors similar to an older BMW 5 Series E39. Noticeable differences include its inverted front indicators, a slightly different taillight design, and the lack of BMW's traditional (and trademarked) kidney-shaped grille. In its place is a simplistic rounded rectangular shape resembling that of the second generation Lexus LS, one of the competitors to the BMW 7 Series in the full-size luxury segment. Its roofline is simplified to cut at a right angle instead of flow into the lines of the rear doors. The car's lower portion is comprised of some interesting geometry; its front bumper is designed lower to the ground while its rear bumper sits higher up. Its skirts rise from front to rear in an exaggeration of a similar effect seen on the E90 3 series. A character line cuts in slowly on each skirt moving from front to back, creating a unique design.

There is a slightly modified variant of the Oracle which is based on the Alpina B7 that are driven by members of the Irish Mob. It is painted dark green with front and rear bumper kits and a sport mesh grill, and its badge markings are removed. This variant is often seen in Steinway, Dukes.

Grand Theft Auto V

In GTA V, the Oracle returns in the game and remains unchanged, while a second generation is featured in the game with a newer design (often called Oracle 2 or Oracle Sport). The only changes are its wheels, which have been replaced by the "LozSpeed 10" design seen in Los Santos Customs, possibly for being too low-poly. When appearing in certain colours, its front side indicators will be replaced with a body-coloured cap. It was officially named Oracle XS after the Heists Update and the second generation simply named Oracle.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Oracle is powered by what sounds like a flat-plane engine, but the engine model remains too un-detailed to identify. It is able to achieve a decent top speed with satisfactory acceleration. Its handling is superb for a car of its size, and it is durable, owing to its luxury construction. The steering is relatively lifeless however, it can feel a little disconnected from the road, primarily due to the excessive weight and width. The soft suspension means that the car is comfortable on all surfaces. Though, abusing the suspension may cause the wheels to lock in.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Oracle XS improves on the normal Oracle with better acceleration. However, it has lackluster acceleration, and average top speed. Handling is average, and it can round corners without many major issues most times. It is very much so an understeer-based car, and oversteer is practically nonexistent. Braking is on the lower end for its class. Crash deformation is good, able to take several head-on hits before failing. Overall, the Oracle is one of the lesser coupes, but because the class is very tightly bound, it is not very far away from the top cars. The engine cover remains the same, however it gains a 3D model underneath with intake and exhaust manifolds, revealing the vehicle has a four-cylinder model, contradicting the engine cover. The engine sound itself is much more aggressive than its GTA IV counterpart, being much louder and with notably rough combustion.

Special Variants

  • A unique red variant appears in The Ballad of Gay Tony mission Going Deep. It can be obtained and kept after the mission (unless the player replays the mission to obtain it, in which case it will disappear when parked at a safehouse or parking space).

  • The default radio stations of the Oracle are:
  • The names of the three Übermacht vehicles might be references to the movie "The Matrix". The Oracle is a reference to the computer program that helps humans fight the machines, the Zion is a reference to the last human city, and the Sentinel is a reference to the machines the humans are at war with.
  • The Oracle's name could be a reference to the BMW Oracle Racingteam, as Übermacht, based on BMW, manufactures the Oracle. It may also be a slight poke at the Sentinel that it replaces, as sentinel and oracle are both things that deal with observing or watching.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • An Oracle billboard advertisement parodying BMW's advertisement style is seen on billboards around the city, including one in Star Junction.
    • The Oracle in the billboard adverts does not feature any logo on the bonnet.
  • The Oracle shares the same rim design as the Super Diamond. Coincidentally, BMW, is the parent company of Rolls-Royce in real life. In fact, during the first stages of designing the Rolls-Royce Phantom, the shell of the BMW 7 Series (E65) was used as a design guide, so in a way the Rolls-Royce Phantom is a larger and more luxurious platform mate to the BMW 7 Series. This rim design was removed in GTA V in both vehicles.
  • During Taking in the Trash, the Oracles that chase the player have special body kits. They are the same body kits found on the Irish Mob Oracle. It is possible to kill the occupants and take it, but driving too far away from the Trashmaster may result in mission failure.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • On the steering wheel, there is a Benefactor logo. This is likely a developer oversight.
  • It is clear that the Oracle is a luxury sedan, but it is classified as a coupe.
  • Neither the first nor the second generations of the Oracle can have its bodywork modified at Los Santos Customs.
