For the modern version in Grand Theft Auto V, see Oracle.
"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.

Design

Grand Theft Auto IV

"Automatic Arrogance."
— Oracle advertising slogan in GTA IV.

The Oracle resembles a cross between the BMW E65 and the BMW E60, with doors similar to the older BMW E39. Noticeable differences include its inverted front indicators, a slightly different tail light 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 skirts rise from front to rear in an exaggeration of a similar effect seen on the E90 3 Series.

The Oracle is a four-door luxury sedan which inherits the general design and role previously filled by the Sentinel and Washington in the 3D Universe (the HD Universe's Sentinel is redesigned into a 2-door sports coupé, and the Washington is redesigned into a less luxurious executive saloon). However, unlike the Sentinel from the 3D Universe, the Oracle is a larger luxury sedan, rather than a mid-sized one.

On the front, the car has a bulky bumper that is designed lower to the ground, having a wide open section with dual horizontal dividers, as well as black housings on the edges with small fog-lamps. Slightly above the open section, there is a central section intended for the number plate, while the sections beside it have silver/chrome strips on the upper borders of the bumper, spanning up to the front quarters. The area above the bumper consist of a rectangular grille with various horizontal dividers on the centre, while large housings with dual headlamps and lower turn signals can be seen on either edge. The bonnet has slightly elevated lines starting near the headlamps and reaching towards the A-pillars of the cabin, while the manufacturer emblem can be seen on the front, just above the grille. There is also a black portion at the base of the windscreen, holding the wipers.

On the sides, the car bears small marker lights on the front fenders, located between the front wheel arches and the front doors. A character line cuts in slowly on each skirt moving from front to back, creating a unique design, while a body line is created on the front fenders and going towards the rear tail lamps, passing through the door handles. On the greenhouse area, its roofline is simplified to cut at a right angle instead of flowing into the lines of the rear doors, bearing silver/chrome trim around the side windows and black inner pillars, as well as black sections for the coloured mirror shells. On the central area, two additional silver/chrome trim pieces separate the roof panel from the rest of the car, extending up to the lower corners of both the windscreen and the rear window. A small, retracted antenna can be seen on the passenger side, near the rear window.

On the rear, the boot lid gives the car a seemingly large profile compared to the front area, having a slightly concave portion bearing the third brake light, a silver/chrome strip on the centre and an inset section holding the number plate, as well as small rectangular reverse lights beside the plate area and below the aforementioned strip. The bottom area of the boot lid is also narrower, bearing silver lettering displaying the names of both the model and manufacturer. On the rear quarters of the vehicle, there are large red tail lamps with smaller turn signals below, which have an angled profile on the inner side due to the shape of the boot lid. On the lower area, the bumper has a similar bulky profile and features as the front one, only that there is a single, uninterrupted silver/chrome strip, as well as a black portion at the bottom with mouldings on the edges, leaving room for the dual exhaust tips.

The vehicle is only available in single-tone colours applied on the bodywork and the mirror shells. It uses a unique set of rims, consisting of a circular dish with five small dual spokes around, wrapped in low-profile tyres.

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The Oracle returns in Grand Theft Auto V with the same design and features. In the enhanced version, however, it gains a restored interior that is shared with cars such as the Schafter and the Tailgater. As the game introduced a newer version, it was formerly known as the "first generation" version, before it was officially renamed Oracle XS after the Heists Update.

Again, the vehicle is only available in single-tone colours applied on the bodywork, the mirror shells, and the stitches of the interior. It also gains an updated rim design, being similar to the "LozSpeed 10" high-end/SUV rims seen in Los Santos Customs, wrapped in low-profile tyres.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Oracle is powered by what looks like a V8 engine, but remains too un-detailed to truly identify it as such. 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.

The engine sound is shared with vehicles such as the Primo, the Presidente and the Vincent.

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

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

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • There is a slightly modified variant of the Oracle that are driven by McReary Crime Family members, intended to be based on the Alpina B7. This variant is painted dark green and comes with front and rear bumper kits, custom skirts and a sport mesh grill, with its badge markings removed. In GTA IV, this variant will retain the color no matter how many times the car is resprayed (They can only change color in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony).
  • During the mission Taking in the Trash, the Oracles that chase the player have the same body kits found on the Irish Mob variant. It is possible to kill the occupants and take it, but driving too far away from the Trashmaster may result in mission failure. While identical to the Irish Mob ones, this one can be resprayed without going dark green.
  • A unique red variant appears in The Ballad of Gay Tony, in the mission Going Deep (it is the car where Bulgarin and Timur hide behind). If the player is relatively careful not to blow it up during the shootout, it can easily be stolen in the process of completing the mission, but occasionally vanishes, mostly when replaying the mission.

Trivia

General

  • 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.
  • 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 default radio stations for the Oracle are:

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 Super Diamond from The Ballad of Gay Tony shares the same rim design as the Oracle.
    • 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.

Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

  • In the PS3/XBOX360 version of the game, there is a Benefactor logo on the steering wheel. This is likely a result of reused interior assets.
  • Applying any window tint will cause the front side indicators to become tinted as well.
