- "A fantastic piece of German engineering. So much that an oil change will cost you $500 at the dealership."
- ―Oracle, Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.
The design of the second generation Oracle draws on an aggressive German styling featured on the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe for the overall styling. The long wheelbase, greenhouse profile and rare chrome trim have been inspired from the more larger BMW 7 Series F01/F02. The main body line, wheel arches, rear bumper and transition from C pillar to third box area have been inspired by the F01. The rear lights are mostly inspired by the BMW 5 Series GT's, but the overall rear profile also strikes a resemblance to the current fourth generation Lexus GS, sixth generation Hyundai Sonata, Acura RLX , third generation Kia Optima/K5 and Infiniti Q50 sedans. The front fascia also bears a resemblance to the Infiniti Q50, but is likely designed more after the BMW 6 Series (F06/F12/F13) with headlamps from the BMW 3 Series F30. The car's overall body shape is classed as a Coupé in the game.
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.
The Oracle is now much sportier. This sedan moves rather swiftly and is powered by a twin-turbocharged version of the Oracle XS' engine. Cornering is an improvement over its 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. Its top speed is 195 mph (315 km/h). It has better acceleration than the the Felon yet a slightly lower top speed.

- Dave Norton owns a blue second generation Oracle with the registration plate "81TDS937". A vehicle with the same registration plate is driven by Michael De Santa in the Obvious approach for The Big Score.
- Can be bought for $80,000 from Southernsanandreassuperautos.com. The black on orange color scheme on the one the player can buy online seems to be inspired by the 2005 AC Schnitzer M6 Tension Concept.
- Appears very commonly in and around Rockford Hills.
- A blue Oracle will spawn next to Franklin right after completing the mission Pack Man.
- A blue variant also appears in Three's Company and By the Book. It is used by Dave Norton as a Personal Vehicle. Sometimes after completing By the Book, Michael will still be driving it, and the vehicle itself can be saved.
- A black variant appears outside Vanilla Unicorn for transport to the Union Depository in the obvious approach for The Big Score.
- The default radio stations of the Oracle are:
- GTA V: East Los FM 106.2 or Los Santos Rock Radio.
- "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.
- In GTA Online, the Oracle sells for $8,000 at Los Santos Customs.
- On the steering wheel, in first person view there was originally a Benefactor logo present, however this has since been patched.
- The Oracle, along with the Baller, Cavalcade, Schafter, Buffalo, Burrito, Tipper and Faggio, are the only vehicles to have two generations at the same time in game.
- Neither the first nor the second generations of the Oracle can have its bodywork modified at Los Santos Customs.
- The second generation of the Oracle only features exhaust modifications. All other options are the same as the first generation.
