The [[Übermacht]] '''Oracle''' is a four-door luxury sedan in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. There is a "first generation" referred to as the '''Oracle XS''', which is available in both Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. Exclusively to Grand Theft Auto V is a more high end "second generation" known as the '''Oracle 2''' or '''Oracle Sport'''.

==== GTA IV ====
The Oracle is a four-door sedan which inherits the general design and role previously filled by the [[Sentinel]] in the [[File:Oracle_badges.png|thumb|Badging on the Oracle.]][[HD Universe]] (the GTA IV Sentinel is redesigned as a two-door sport luxury coupe). The Oracle resembles the [[wp:BMW 7 Series|BMW E65 7 Series]] (2002-2008), particularly the pre-facelift models (2002-2005). The only noticeable differences are inverted front indicators, a slightly different taillight design, and the lack of BMW's traditional (and trademarked) kidney-shaped grilles. The grille resembles that of a [[wp:Lexus LS#Second generation (XF20)|second-generation Lexus LS]], one of the competitors to the BMW 7 Series in the full-size luxury segment.

The design of the car draws on German styling featured on the [[wp:BMW 7 Series (F01)|F01 7 series]] and the [[wp:BMW 6 Series (F06/F12/F13)#Gran Coupe|F06 6 Series Gran Coupe]]. The long wheelbase, greenhouse profile and rare chrome trim have been taken from both. The main body line, wheel arches, rear bumper and transition from C pillar to [[wp:Three-box_styling|third box area]] have been inspired by the F01. The rear lights are mostly inspired by the [[wp:BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo|BMW 5 series GT]]'s, but the overall rear profile also strikes a resemblance to the current [[wp:Lexus gs#Fourth generation.28L10.29|Lexus GS]], [[wp:Hyundai Sonata#Sixth generation.282009.E2.80.93present.29|Hyundai Sonata]], [[wp:Acura RLX|Acura RLX]] and [[wp:Infiniti Q50|Infiniti Q50]] sedans. The front fascia also bears a resemblance to the Infiniti Q50, but is likely designed more after the [[wp:BMW 6-series|Third generation BMW 6 series]] with headlamps from the [[wp:BMW 5 Series (E60)|BMW 5 Series (E60)]]. The car's overall body shape is classed as a Coupe in game.
+
==== GTA V ====
  +
In [[GTA V]], the Oracle returns in two generations: the first generation from [[GTA IV]] (officially named '''Oracle XS''' after the [[Heists Update]]) and the new second generation (simply named '''Oracle''').
   
The side of the car displays a very long profile and features very smooth sides. The wheelbase of the car, much like many luxury vehicles, is relatively long. The wheel arches are flared but with a smooth transition from the main body area. The lower body and upper body are split by a long main body line that covers the entire length of the car and coincides with the rear lights. At the base of the A pillar, small wing mirrors are mounted. The greenhouse section is bounded by smooth lines and the C pillars present a smooth transition into the third box of the car's body. The car is equipped with split five spoke wheels that are wrapped in low profile tyres.
 
   
At the center-top area of the car's rear face a manufacturer emblem is mounted. Not far beneath the emblem is a horizontal chrome strip spanning half the car's width, whose top edge coincides with the top edge of the rear lights. The rear lights are dominantly red units. The license plates are mounted centrally at between the two units. The rear bumper has a top edge that is impressed for the central two-thirds of its width. The base of the rear bumper features two single exhaust tips, one close to either edge.

=== GTA IV ===

The Oracle is powered by a 4.4L V8 (meaning it is based on the 745i, which also powered by the same engine). Thus it is able to achieve a decent top speed of 166 mph (269 km/h) 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. The soft suspension means that the car is comfortable on all surfaces. ABS is avaliable yet interestingly not standard, which is odd considering it is a luxury car. The [[McReary]] Mob variant can reach up to a high top speed of 196 mph (315 km/h) due to the addition of a supercharger which the speed is nearly overtaking the [[Cognoscenti]].

The Oracle is powered by a V8 (meaning it is based on either a 735i or 745i, the both of them also powered by a V8) Most likely a 745i. Thus it is able to achieve a decent high speed of 166 mph (269 km/h) 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. The soft suspension means that the car is comfortable on all surfaces.

The Oracle in [[GTA V]] is much sportier. The full sized sedan moves rather swiftly and is powered by a very potent sounding V8. Cornering is an improvement over it's predecessor and braking is impressive. ABS is standard. The Oracle is a large, heavy saloon yet the handling is well balanced and the overall speed is exceptional for such a car.

They can only change color in [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]] and [[The Lost and Damned]].

* The default radio stations for the Oracle are:
 
**'''''GTA IV''''': [[The Journey]].
 
* An Oracle billboard advertisement parodying BMW's advertisement style is seen on billboards around the city, including one in [[Star Junction]].
 
* "Automatic Arrogance" is likely a reference to the arrogance that BMW (Ubermacht's real life counterpart) drivers may feel driving such a car, owing to its prestige and cost.
 
* "Automatic" could be a reference to the only transmission choice for a BMW 7 Series, in contrast to other BMW vehicles that have manual transmissions available, as the E65 was the first iteration of the 7 Series not to offer a manual.
 
* Interestingly, the Oracle in the billboard adverts does not feature any logo on the bonnet.
 
* The Oracle's name could be a reference to the [[wp:BMW Oracle Racing|BMW Oracle Racing]] team, as Übermacht, based on BMW, manufactures the Oracle. It may also be a slight poke at the Sentinel that it replaces, as a sentinel and an oracle are both things that deal with observing or watching.
 
* In GTA IV, the Oracle shares the same rim design as the [[Super Diamond]]. Coincidentally, BMW, which is parodied in game as "Ubermacht", 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 E65 BMW 7 Series 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.
 
* XS probably is meant to sound like the word "excess", meaning the car is a luxury buy that is not needed, just desired.

* In GTA V, the V12 engine this car houses is contrary to the engine that real-life BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe houses, which is either a turbocharged 3.0L straight-six or a twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8. Bear in mind that if we use FIA formula of multiplying a turbocharged/supercharged car's engine by 1.4, the top-of-the-line variant with the biturbo 4.4L V8 engine should have around 6.160cc, a typical displacement for V12 configuration.

―Oracle XS, Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Übermacht Oracle XS is a four-door luxury sedan in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. Exclusively to Grand Theft Auto V, there is a second generation, which is often referred to as the Oracle 2 or Oracle Sport.

Description Edit

Design Edit

GTA IV Edit

Badging on the Oracle.

"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 a subtle resemblance to a BMW 5 Series E39. The only noticeable differences are inverted front indicators, a slightly different taillight design, and the lack of BMW's traditional (and trademarked) kidney-shaped grilles. The grille resembles that of the second generation Lexus LS, one of the competitors to the BMW 7 Series in the full-size luxury segment.

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.

GTA V Edit

In GTA V, the Oracle returns in two generations: the first generation from GTA IV (officially named Oracle XS after the Heists Update) and the new second generation (simply named Oracle).


Performance Edit

GTA IV Edit

The Oracle is powered by a 4.4L V8 (meaning it is based on the 745i, which also powered by the same engine). Thus it is able to achieve a decent top speed of 166 mph (269 km/h) 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. The soft suspension means that the car is comfortable on all surfaces. ABS is avaliable yet interestingly not standard, which is odd considering it is a luxury car. The McReary Mob variant can reach up to a high top speed of 196 mph (315 km/h) due to the addition of a supercharger which the speed is nearly overtaking the Cognoscenti.

Unique Variants Edit

  • The Irish Mob in GTA IV drive dark green modified Oracles with bumper, skirt and grille upgrades. They can only change color in The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned. In IV they will retain the colour no matter how many times the car is resprayed, however a modified version can be obtained in Taking in the Trash that can be resprayed without going dark green.
  • 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).

Trivia Edit

General Edit

  • The default radio stations of the Oracle are:
  • An Oracle billboard advertisement parodying BMW's advertisement style is seen on billboards around the city, including one in Star Junction.
  • "Automatic" could be a reference to the only transmission choice for a BMW 7 Series, in contrast to other BMW vehicles that have manual transmissions available, as the E65 was the first iteration of the 7 Series not to offer a manual transmission.
  • Interestingly, the Oracle in the billboard adverts does not feature any logo on the bonnet.
  • 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.

GTA IV & Episodes Edit

  • In GTA IV, 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 on GTA V in both vehicles.
  • XS probably is meant to sound like the word "excess", meaning the car is a luxury buy that is not needed, just desired.
  • 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.
