"A German beauty of timeless passion and sleek design. When you're interested in class and an overpowered engine, there is no other choice"

The Übermacht Zion and Zion Cabrio are a two-door luxury coupé and convertible featured in Grand Theft Auto V.

Design

Both Zions in GTA V are manufactured by Übermacht and are modeled after the BMW 6 Series E63, most likely the 650i, considering the headlights and wheel trim design.

The coupé version (badged as Zion XS) is based on the 2005-2010 BMW M6, sporting more luxurious trim and wheels and slightly better performance than the convertible. This XS version also features carbon fiber mirrors, front fascia lips, side skirts and rear diffuser. The tailights of the vehicle are found from the 2002-2008 BMW 7 series.The diffuser and exhausts are derived from the 2007-2013 BMW M3.

Performance

The Zion Cabrio is powered by the Oracle's V8. It has a rapid acceleration and top speed, but poor weight distribution results in some oversteer while turning at high speeds. The vehicle's heavy weight may also be a factor in its less-than-decent handling. Its top speed is 186 mph (300 km/h).

The Zion XS is probably powered by a high-output V10 engine and has slightly better performance than the convertible, albeit they have the same top speed. Both versions are suitable for spirited long distance traveling but can also perform very well. The steering is very responsive, but the feeling of weight is there. Overall, the handling is better than its competitor, the Feltzer, which is prone to fishtailing and harder to keep stable around corners.

Trivia

  • The front of this car, especially the headlights and grille area, looks almost identical to the front of the Sentinel, which is also manufactured by Ubermacht.
  • The Zion Cabrio has a unique sound effect when shifting gears. In addition to the normal turbo hiss there is a loud gear shift sound effect. This noise is unique to this vehicle.
  • The names of the three Ubermacht vehicles are 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.
  • Its name sounds similar to Zëhn, which is 10 in German, making a nod out of the 2nd generation BMW M6 engine which has 10 cylinders lying on a V 90° block.
  • In Judaism, Zion is a place name often used as a synonym for Jerusalem.
  • In Grand Theft Auto Online the Zion sells for $6,500 at Los Santos Customs.
  • The default radio station of the Zion is:
  • In Morningwood, there is a billboard with a photo of the frontend of a Ubermacht Zion with the pun "DisObey", referencing to the in-game car company Obey, which parodies Audi. This is referencing to the billboard ad wars BMW (Ubermacht) and Audi (Obey) had with each other over a number of months.
