"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 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 sedan). However, unlike the Sentinel from the 3D Universe, the Oracle is now a larger luxury sedan, rather than a mid-sized one.

The Oracle resembles a cross between the BMW E65 and the BMW E60, with doors similar to an 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 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.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Oracle returns in Grand Theft Auto V with the same design, albeit replacing its original rims with "LozSpeed 10" rims seen in Los Santos Customs. When appearing in certain colours, its front side indicators will be replaced with a body-coloured cap.

As the game introduced a newer version, it was formerly known as the "first generation" Oracle. It was then officially named Oracle XS after the Heists Update.

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

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.

  • 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 of 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

  • In the PS3/XBOX360 version of the game, there is a Benefactor logo on the steering wheel. This is likely a developer oversight or a result of reused interior assets.
