The '''Sentinel''' is a luxury car featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto Advance]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'' , ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]].''
+
The '''Sentinel''' is a continually recurring series of [[wp:BMW|BMW]]-based cars featured in both [[3D Universe]] and [[HD Universe]], with the exception of [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]. It is manufactured by [[Übermacht]] in the [[HD Universe]].
   
In [[GTA III Era]], it appears as a mid-size or full-size sedan. The Sentinel assumes the design of a sporty two-door coupe in the [[GTA IV Era]].
+
In the [[3D Universe]], it is a mid-size luxury 4-door sedan. In the [[HD Universe]] it assumes the design of a compact two-door sports coupe in ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' and later a hard-top convertible in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''.

===3D Universe===
The Sentinel resembles a [[wp:BMW 5 Series (E39)|1996-2003 BMW 5 Series]] sedan (most likely a 528i, based on the power and size) in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories. In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, it resembles a lengthened [[wp:BMW 7 Series (E23)|BMW 7 Series E23]] or a [[wp:Cadillac Cimarron|Cadillac Cimarron]] , and in San Andreas, it mainly resembles a [[wp:BMW 5 Series (E34)|BMW 5 Series E34]], while the rear end draws similarities from [[wp:Lexus LS|First Generation Lexus LS]]. Is also similar to a [[wp:Alfa Romeo 164|Alfa Romeo 164]]. However, several significant cosmetic changes may be noted between the latter three games, particularly with regards to the the frontal and rear fascias; even the GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories renditions are significantly different from each other, as the GTA Vice City Stories Sentinel appears less like its high performance counterpart, the [[Sentinel XS]], which had not received the same degree of changes.
+
In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, the Sentinel resembles a slightly enlarged [[wp:BMW 3 Series (E36)|BMW 3 Series (E36)]] (most likely the 325i/328i) with different taillights from the [[wp:Mitsubishi Diamante|Mitsubishi Diamante]] and having frontal influences from the newer [[wp:BMW 3 Series (E46)|E46]].
   
The GTA Vice City Stories rendition is more likely to be based on the [[wikipedia:Honda Accord#Refresh_.281984.E2.80.931985.29|1982–1985 US Honda Accord]] because the shape of the front end and the headlights. It spawns rarely in this game.
+
In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, it is based on the [[wp:BMW 5 Series (E28)|BMW 5 Series (E28)]] with headlights derived from a [[wp:Honda Accord|1984-1985 US spec Honda Accord sedan]] and minor styling cues from the [[wp:BMW 6 Series (E24)|BMW 6 Series (E24)]]. However, several significant cosmetic changes may be noted between the two games, particularly with regards to the frontal and rear fascias; even the GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories renditions are significantly different from each other, as the GTA Vice City Stories Sentinel appears less like its tuned counterpart, the [[Sentinel XS]], which had not received the same degree of changes.
   
The GTA Advance rendition does not appear to have a clear source of inspiration for its design, but retains its slender 4-door sedan. While the car isn't generally associated with any gang, the GTA Advance rendition is an exception, serving a gang car for an unspecified mafia in the game, taking over the role of the [[Mafia Sentinel]], the mafia variant of the Sentinel.
+
In GTA San Andreas, it is primarily based on the [[wp:BMW 5 Series (E34)|BMW 5 Series (E34)]], most likely the 528i, with a rectangular headlights (as opposed to E34's dual round headlights).
   
[[Beta Releases#Grand Theft Auto III|At one point of GTA III's development]], the Sentinel was named the "[[Beamer]]" (Beamer is a common nickname given to BMW cars, particularly in the UK). [[Beamer|A car of this name]] was previously featured in [[Grand Theft Auto 2]], and was also based on a BMW. Meanwhile, a "[[Sentinal]]" was also in the process of development, appearing as a modern, rounded car that would go on to become the [[Kuruma]]. Both beta cars can be found in the [[Capital Autos]] website.
+
While the Sentinel is usually a common car in the streets in most GTA titles, it is significantly rare in Vice City Stories.

[[Beta Releases#Grand Theft Auto III|At one point of GTA III's development]], the Sentinel was named the "[[Beamer]]" (Beamer is a play on "''Bimmer''", common slang term given to BMW cars, especially the modified ones). [[Beamer|A car of this name]] was previously featured in [[Grand Theft Auto 2]], and was also based on a BMW. Meanwhile, a "[[Sentinal]]" was also in the process of development, appearing as a modern mid-size car that would go on to become the [[Kuruma]]. Both beta cars can be found in the [[Capital Autos]] website.
===GTA IV===
 
The Sentinel in GTA IV is manufactured by [[Übermacht]] and is modeled after the [[wp:BMW 3 Series (E46)|BMW 3 Series E46]] coupe, most likely the [[wp:BMW M3#E46 M3|2001-2006 M3]], considering the bumper design. There is also a possibility it is based on the 2003-2005 330ci ZHP, a high performance variant that featured custom bumpers similar to the Sentinel's, as well as sporting higher performance. The tail lights seem to be inspired by the Oldsmobile Intrigue. Also visible are miniscule STD badges in front of the doors, near the sideskirts and front wheel wells. STD stands for "Sentinel Tuning Division", likely a play on Subaru's STi marque and BMW's in-house tuning division, BMW M, but also a reference to the acronym for "sexually transmitted disease." The format in which it is written is also similar to that of Subaru's STI division.

===HD Universe===
  +
====''Grand Theft Auto IV''====
  +
The [[Übermacht]] Sentinel in GTA IV is now redesigned into a two-door sports coupe, based on the coupe variant of the [[wp:BMW 3 Series (E46)|BMW 3 Series (E46)]] (based on its performance and styling, presumably a 2004-2006 330ci ZHP Edition) in chassis design, as well as the entire front, though the grille is one piece. The tail lights however, seem to be inspired by the older [[wp:BMW 3 Series (E36)|E36 3 Series]] and [[wp:BMW 5 Series (E39)|E39 5 Series]]. However it appears to have smaller body, making it also similar to the [[wp:BMW 1 Series|BMW 1 Series Coupé (E82)]].

The Sentinel can be found with silver, gold, and black painted alloy rims, all with a chrome lip. It is equipped with a [[GPS]] system with a female voice, but only if the player leaves the "selected cars" (default) option in the audio menu.

===GTA V===
+
After [[Stevie's Car Thefts|collecting]] all thirty cars for [[Stevie]] in GTA IV, he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Sentinel fetching $2,500.
Still manufactured by [[Übermacht]], the Sentinel appears in GTA V as being inspired by a newer version of the BMW 3-Series 2-door, either the E91 335i or [[wp:BMW_M3#E90.2F92.2F93_M3|E90 M3.]] It is available as a hard top convertible. The wheels featured on this model bear a dangerous resemblance to the Tenzo-R Project 7 wheels.
 
   
The front face of the car has an overall appearance similar to the M3, but has some minor differences, the headlights appear more like those found on the [[wp:Subaru_Impreza_(second_generation)#Second_facelift:_2005.E2.80.932007|Subaru Impreza (second facelift)]]. The grille is a single unit as opposed to the two found on BMW models.
+
====''Grand Theft Auto V''====
  +
The Sentinel is redesigned once again in GTA V, inspired by the newer [[wp:BMW 3 Series (E90)|BMW 3 Series Convertible (E93)]] (based on the engine noise and performance, most likely a 330i or 335i; however, it has the design of a 328i Convertible with performance that isn't similar).
   
At the rear, half the bumper width features an area filled with a secondary material. Unlike the M3 that this model is based on, the exhaust tips sit just outsude the outer edges of this area, and are ovular as opposed to twin-circles.
+
There are elements from the [[wp:BMW M3|E92 M3]]. The car also has little style ques from the [[wp:Lexus IS (XE20)|Lexus ISF USE20]]; this is noticeable in the front grille. It is available as a hard top convertible, based on the E92 coupe. The wheels featured on this model bear a striking resemblance to [[wp:Volk Racing GT30|Volk Racing GT30]] or [[wp:Volk Racing RE30|RE30]] wheels. The same wheels are shared with the [[Feltzer]] and the [[Fusilade]].
   
Michael owns a red Sentinel with a custom licence plate saying "''KRYST4L''" as seen in his personal trailer at 0.34. 
+
The front face of the car has an overall appearance similar to the M3, but has some minor differences: the headlights appear more like those found on the [[wp:Subaru Impreza (second generation)|Subaru Impreza (second facelift)]], and the grille is a single unit as opposed to the trademark "kidney" grille found on BMW models.
   
<gallery orientation="none" position="center" widths="200">
+
The rear of the car is based mainly on the [[wp:Saab 9-3|Saab 9-3]], especially with the curvature of the front grille components, headlight configuration and bumper alignment. Unlike the 3-series that this model is based on, the exhaust tips sit just outside the outer edges of this area, and are oval as opposed to twin-circles.

== Performance ==
+
After the [[Grand Theft Auto V/Title Update Notes|1.10 update]], both the Sentinel and its XS variant have been reclassed to a "Sports" car, instead of its former "Coupes" category. The reason for the sudden category change is unknown and somewhat inaccurate due it is a compact executive coupe rather than a sports car. However, this was reverted back to the "Coupes" category, along with all of Ubermacht's vehicles, in the 1.11 update.
===GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories===
 
With a V8 engine in all its appearances between GTA III and GTA Vice City Stories, the Sentinel has a good top speed and acceleration. The car handles well, although it suffers from body roll in GTA Liberty City Stories. It comes with good drifting properties, although its rear-drive layout sometimes leads to oversteer and tailspins; these problems are more apparent in the GTA San Andreas rendition, due to its different weight distribution and softer suspension. In GTA San Andreas, the Sentinel's top speed of 163km/h (101mph) makes it the second fastest four-door car in the game.
 
   
===GTA IV===
+
In GTA Online, this is the most expensive car that can stolen off the street to keep in one's garage or sold at [[Los Santos Customs]], tied with the [[Felon GT]], selling for $9,500.
As a sport luxury coupe, the GTA IV Sentinel reaches a superb top speed of 192 mph (320 km/h) - not far from the fastest vehicles in the game. It has above-average acceleration, reaching 60 mph from a stand still in 6.5 seconds, and reaching its top speed fairly quickly as well. The Sentinel's suspension is rather soft, and it tends to roll when going around tight bends at high speed; the rear of the car also tends to bounce about when traveling on uneven roads. Its handling is above average, but at high speeds it loses a lot of grip and easily spins out of control due to the lack of weight in the rear. But if controlled right, its speed and grip can be combined to produce almost-professional like drifts that can be used to slide into sharp turns and back alleyways to evade the police without difficulty. Nonetheless, it is arguably the best choice in the [[Races in GTA IV|Modern]] category in multiplayer racing.
 
   
Crash deformation at higher speeds is high (quarter panels of the car may look to be "glitched" into the wheel wells if hit hard enough), and it isn't hard with this car to make the wheels jam in crashes, but the car can withstand a surprising amount of frontal impacts without failing.

===3D Universe===
*In the mission "[[Bait]]", [[Catalina]] has sent three [[Colombian Cartel]] death squads to kill [[Claude]]. The death squads consist of three Sentinels with four men each; the Sentinel was picked as these are the fastest and best-handling four-door vehicle (excluding emergency vehicles). Claude is directed to lead the Columbians into a [[Yakuza]] ambush organized by [[Asuka Kasen|Asuka]].
+
With a sturdy inline-6 engine in all its appearances (with the exception of inline-4 in Vice City Stories), the Sentinel has a decent top speed and acceleration despite its heavy weight. The car handles well, although it suffers from body roll in GTA Vice City Stories. It comes with good drifting properties, although its RWD layout sometimes leads to oversteer and tailspins; these problems are more apparent in the GTA San Andreas rendition, due to its lighter weight distribution and softer suspension. In GTA San Andreas, the Sentinel's top speed of 163 km/h (101 mph) makes it the second fastest four-door car in the game. Also, the Sentinel in all games are known to be durable due to its luxury build and heavy weight, which can withstand a large amounts of damage before destroyed, making it a suitable choice for street racing, pursuits, getaways and as a cover in shootouts.
*In the mission [[Dead Skunk in the Trunk]], Joey Leone orders Claude to take one [[Manana]] with a Leone dead body in the trunk, in the front of the [[Greasy Joe's Café]], but there are two [[Forelli Family|Forelli]] gang members in two Sentinels overseeing the car, the player needs to steal the car, make a run-away opposite the Forelli Brothers, and bring the car successful to the [[Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard]].

  +
Returning to GTA V, the car has massive improvements, such as increase top speed and acceleration, braking distance and gear shifting. Crash deformation is acceptable, and can take multiple crashes to even deform the front end. The engine is strangely exposed to gun-fire, taking the most damage from gun-fire, which is strange to say it is completely covered. Crash deformation at higher speeds is high (quarter panels of the car may look to be "glitched" into the wheel wells if hit hard enough), and it isn't hard with this car to make the wheels jam in crashes, but the car can withstand a surprising amount of frontal impacts without failing. The Sentinel is a decent car to use in online races and is even better on Freemode sessions, thanks to its very smooth and precise driving which compensates for its (relatively) low acceleration compared to other cars.
   
* It is also driven in the mission "[[Mountain Cloud Boys]]", to aid [[Wu Zi Mu]] in a series of drive-by shootings against enemy gang members.

* A black Sentinel is featured during a cutscene in "[[The Guns of Leone]]", during which [[Salvatore Leone]] charges into the [[Red Light District]] to exert revenge on the [[Sindacco Family|Sindaccos]], running over an unsuspecting Sindacco member on the way. The car is unobtainable as the car turns into a [[Mafia Sentinel]] after the cutscene ends.
+
==Image Gallery==
* Four black Sentinels are prominently driven by [[hitmen]] hired by [[Ma Cipriani]] in "[[No Son of Mine]]"; as soon as the hitmen exit one such Sentinel, the player can easily attain the car. The cars are programmed to be heavy, which allows the player to push aside other cars without affecting the Sentinel's performance or trajectory.
+
<gallery position="center">
* The same form of Sentinels mention above can also be found during "[[A Walk in the Park]]", when [[Roger C. Hole]] and his body guards arrive at [[Belleville Park]] in three such cars parked in a row. Once the player manages to kill R.C. Hole and the body guards before they reach their cars, the player can take any of the cars to their garage; otherwise, if R.C. Hole manages to flee to the second car, the car's weight is reset to normal while the first and third cars retain their heavy weight. The Sentinels also received increased health for the mission.
+

* The last appearance of the black Sentinel is during "[[Making Toni]]", when it serves as the player's mode of transport for the mission and is fireproof. The car can be obtained by partially submerging the car in a shallow shoreline, failing the mission; otherwise, the car is driven away by [[Mickey Hamfists]] in the end of the mission.

===Sentinel XS===
  +
{{Main|Sentinel XS}}
  +
The tuned version of the Sentinel, featured in GTA Vice City, GTA Vice City Stories, GTA IV, and GTA V, which has a better top speed and acceleration than the regular one. Curiously the standard Sentinel is more expensive than the XS model in GTA V.
  +
  +
===Special Variants===
  +
*In GTA Vice City, a unique black Sentinel is the target's getaway vehicle in the mission "[[Hit The Courier]]". The player can obtain the car by diligently killing the driver of the car as soon as she enters it, but must not exit the car and close its door until they enter a garage or complete the mission, as the car will lock itself again.

*In GTA IV, a Sentinel is requested as part of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]], appearing with a uniquely candy blue and black body color, similar to that of the [[Sentinel XS|"XS" Sentinel]]. As a new Sentinel will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to [[S&M Auto Sales]], the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another.

The Mafia Sentinel, a gang variant of the Sentinel from GTA III, also known as the [[Leone Sentinel]] in GTA Liberty City Stories.
+
==Prominent Appearances in Missions==
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto III''===
  +
*In the mission "[[Bait]]", [[Catalina]] has sent three [[Colombian Cartel]] death squads to kill [[Claude]]. The death squads consist of three Sentinels with four men each; the Sentinel was picked as these are the fastest and best-handling four-door vehicle (excluding emergency vehicles). Claude is directed to lead the Colombians into a [[Yakuza]] ambush organized by [[Asuka Kasen|Asuka]].
  +
*In the mission [[Dead Skunk in the Trunk]], Joey Leone orders Claude to take one [[Manana]] with a Leone dead body in the trunk, in the front of the [[Greasy Joe's Café]], but there are two [[Forelli Family|Forelli]] gang members in two Sentinels overseeing the car, the player needs to steal the car, make a run-away opposite the Forelli Brothers, and bring the car successful to the [[Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard]].
  +
*In the mission [[Gone Fishing]], if the player doesn't kill Ray's partner in the beach, he will enter a [[Sentinel]] and make a run for it.
   
=== Sentinel XS ===
+
===''Grand Theft Auto: Vice City''===
: ''Main article : [[Sentinel XS]]''
+
*[[Tommy Vercetti|Tommy]] is driving one when racing [[Hillary King|Hillary]] in the mission [[The Driver]].
   
GTA IV features an updated Sentinel XS, made by [[Übermacht]], however it is no longer considered a distinct vehicle — it handles with more rigity as its suspension has been hardened so it corners sharper and drifts are now easier compared to the standard Sentinel, and the game refers to the car simply as "Sentinel" when entered. In a nod to the [[Mafia Sentinel]] of [[Grand Theft Auto III|GTA III]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories|GTA Liberty City Stories]] it serves as one of two cars (the other being the [[PMP 600]]) that are usually driven by the [[The Commission|Mafia]].
+
===''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas''===
  +
*In GTA San Andreas, Sentinels are used by the [[Seville Boulevard Families]] during "[[Sweet's Girl]]".
  +
*Sentinels are also used as cover in the mission "[[The Green Sabre]]", when the player and Sweet must resist the onslaught of the [[Ballas (3D Universe)|Ballas]] under the [[Mulholland Intersection]].
  +
*It is also driven in the mission "[[Mountain Cloud Boys]]", to aid [[Wu Zi Mu]] in a series of drive-by shootings against enemy gang members.
  +
*[[Kent Paul]] is seen driving a dark blue Sentinel to the airport in the GTA San Andreas mission [[Saint Mark's Bistro]]; a unique grey Sentinel can also be seen in the court yard of [[Marco's Bistro]] during this mission.
   
==Trivia==
+
===''Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories''===
*After [[Stevie's Car Thefts|collecting]] all thirty cars for [[Stevie]] in GTA IV, he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Sentinel fetching $2,500.
+
The Sentinel is prominently featured multiple times in GTA Liberty City Stories, all of which are depicted with a dark gray/black body color:
*The Sentinel plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
+
**[[Bounce FM]] in GTA San Andreas.
+
*A black Sentinel is featured during a cutscene in "[[The Guns of Leone]]", during which [[Salvatore Leone]] charges into the [[Red Light District]] to exert revenge on the [[Sindacco Family|Sindaccos]], running over an unsuspecting Sindacco member on the way. The car is unobtainable as the car turns into a [[Mafia Sentinel]] after the cutscene ends.
**[[Liberty City Hardcore]] and [[Liberty Rock Radio]] in GTA IV.
+
*Four black Sentinels are prominently driven by [[hitmen]] hired by [[Ma Cipriani]] in "[[No Son of Mine]]"; as soon as the hitmen exit one such Sentinel, the player can easily attain the car. The cars are programmed to be heavy, which allows the player to push aside other cars without affecting the Sentinel's performance or trajectory.
*The vehicle takes its name from the term ''sentinel'' which means to watch over or guard.
+
*The same form of Sentinels mention above can also be found during "[[A Walk in the Park]]", when [[Roger C. Hole]] and his body guards arrive at [[Belleville Park]] in three such cars parked in a row. Once the player manages to kill R.C. Hole and the body guards before they reach their cars, the player can take any of the cars to their garage; otherwise, if R.C. Hole manages to flee to the second car, the car's weight is reset to normal while the first and third cars retain their heavy weight. The Sentinels also received increased health for the mission.
*Despite being an executive car, it has off-road rims in GTA III.
+
*The last appearance of the black Sentinel is during "[[Making Toni]]", when it serves as the player's mode of transport for the mission and is fireproof. The car can be obtained by partially submerging the car in a shallow shoreline, failing the mission; otherwise, the car is driven away by [[Mickey Hamfists]] in the end of the mission.
*In GTA Liberty City Stories it has a small badge on the grille with pixelized letters on it so its hard to read of it.
+
*In GTA IV the Sentinel can be found with silver, gold, and black painted alloy rims, all with a chrome lip.
+
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
*[[Amanda]], [[Michael (GTA V)|Michael]]'s wife, has been confirmed to own a [[Sentinel#Sentinel_XS|Sentinel XS]].
+
The Sentinel is only featured in two of GTA V's missions.
*In [[GTA III]], the wheels' hubcaps of the Sentinel have the Honda logo on it, like the [[Landstalker]].
+
*In the mission [[Father/Son]], [[Michael De Santa|Michael]] and [[Franklin Clinton|Franklin]] take [[Amanda De Santa|Amanda]]'s red Sentinel and use it to save [[Jimmy De Santa|Jimmy]] from the [[Marabunta Grande|men]] who steal Michael's [[Marquis|yacht]]. However, after Franklin jumps from the yatch and is caught in the Sentinel, the Sentinel's engine breaks down due to it being shot several times by the thieves. This then prompts the player to take the car to [[Los Santos Customs]] to repair it, which also introduces them to car modding.
*In [[GTA IV]], the Sentinel most likely has satellite radio.
+
*The car can be seen again later in the mission [[Reuniting the Family]] parked outside [[Bean Machine]].
  +
  +
==Notable Owners==
  +
*[[Amanda De Santa]] owns a red Sentinel with a [[Custom Vehicle License Plate|custom license plate]] saying "''KRYST4L''", it, like all of the De Santa family cars, [[Franklin Clinton|Franklin's]] [[Buffalo S]] and his [[Bagger]], and [[Trevor Phillips|Trevor's]] [[Bodhi]], will retain all modification's, both cosmetic and performance, for the rest of the game, and will respawn at the player's [[safehouse]] if destroyed.

Latest revision as of 01:52, April 20, 2016


For the vehicle in the beta version of GTA III known as "Sentinal", see Kuruma.
"When you're doing 90 in the fast lane, this is the car right on your ass flashing its high beams. If you're quite rich, and really an asshole, and you want everyone to know it, you can't do better."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos Description

The Sentinel is a continually recurring series of BMW-based cars featured in both 3D Universe and HD Universe, with the exception of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It is manufactured by Übermacht in the HD Universe.

In the 3D Universe, it is a mid-size luxury 4-door sedan. In the HD Universe it assumes the design of a compact two-door sports coupe in Grand Theft Auto IV and later a hard-top convertible in Grand Theft Auto V.

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, the Sentinel resembles a slightly enlarged BMW 3 Series (E36) (most likely the 325i/328i) with different taillights from the Mitsubishi Diamante and having frontal influences from the newer E46.

In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, it is based on the BMW 5 Series (E28) with headlights derived from a 1984-1985 US spec Honda Accord sedan and minor styling cues from the BMW 6 Series (E24). However, several significant cosmetic changes may be noted between the two games, particularly with regards to the frontal and rear fascias; even the GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories renditions are significantly different from each other, as the GTA Vice City Stories Sentinel appears less like its tuned counterpart, the Sentinel XS, which had not received the same degree of changes.

In GTA San Andreas, it is primarily based on the BMW 5 Series (E34), most likely the 528i, with a rectangular headlights (as opposed to E34's dual round headlights).

While the Sentinel is usually a common car in the streets in most GTA titles, it is significantly rare in Vice City Stories.

The GTA Advance rendition does not appear to have a clear source of inspiration for its design, but retains its slender 4-door sedan look. While the car isn't generally associated with any gang, the GTA Advance rendition is an exception, serving as the gang car for an unspecified mafia in the game, taking over the role of the Mafia Sentinel, the mafia variant of the Sentinel.

At one point of GTA III's development, the Sentinel was named the "Beamer" (Beamer is a play on "Bimmer", common slang term given to BMW cars, especially the modified ones). A car of this name was previously featured in Grand Theft Auto 2, and was also based on a BMW. Meanwhile, a "Sentinal" was also in the process of development, appearing as a modern mid-size car that would go on to become the Kuruma. Both beta cars can be found in the Capital Autos website.

HD UniverseEdit

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Übermacht Sentinel in GTA IV is now redesigned into a two-door sports coupe, based on the coupe variant of the BMW 3 Series (E46) (based on its performance and styling, presumably a 2004-2006 330ci ZHP Edition) in chassis design, as well as the entire front, though the grille is one piece. The tail lights however, seem to be inspired by the older E36 3 Series and E39 5 Series. However it appears to have smaller body, making it also similar to the BMW 1 Series Coupé (E82).

Also visible are miniscule STD badges in front of the doors, near the sideskirts and front wheel wells. STD stands for "Sentinel Tuning Division", likely a play on Subaru's STi marque and BMW's in-house tuning division, BMW M, but also a reference to the acronym for "sexually transmitted disease." The format in which it is written is also similar to that of Subaru's STI division.

The Sentinel can be found with silver, gold, and black painted alloy rims, all with a chrome lip. It is equipped with a GPS system with a female voice, but only if the player leaves the "selected cars" (default) option in the audio menu.

After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie in GTA IV, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Sentinel fetching $2,500.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Sentinel is redesigned once again in GTA V, inspired by the newer BMW 3 Series Convertible (E93) (based on the engine noise and performance, most likely a 330i or 335i; however, it has the design of a 328i Convertible with performance that isn't similar).

There are elements from the E92 M3. The car also has little style ques from the Lexus ISF USE20; this is noticeable in the front grille. It is available as a hard top convertible, based on the E92 coupe. The wheels featured on this model bear a striking resemblance to Volk Racing GT30 or RE30 wheels. The same wheels are shared with the Feltzer and the Fusilade.

The front face of the car has an overall appearance similar to the M3, but has some minor differences: the headlights appear more like those found on the Subaru Impreza (second facelift), and the grille is a single unit as opposed to the trademark "kidney" grille found on BMW models.

The rear of the car is based mainly on the Saab 9-3, especially with the curvature of the front grille components, headlight configuration and bumper alignment. Unlike the 3-series that this model is based on, the exhaust tips sit just outside the outer edges of this area, and are oval as opposed to twin-circles.

After the 1.10 update, both the Sentinel and its XS variant have been reclassed to a "Sports" car, instead of its former "Coupes" category. The reason for the sudden category change is unknown and somewhat inaccurate due it is a compact executive coupe rather than a sports car. However, this was reverted back to the "Coupes" category, along with all of Ubermacht's vehicles, in the 1.11 update.

In GTA Online, this is the most expensive car that can stolen off the street to keep in one's garage or sold at Los Santos Customs, tied with the Felon GT, selling for $9,500.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

With a sturdy inline-6 engine in all its appearances (with the exception of inline-4 in Vice City Stories), the Sentinel has a decent top speed and acceleration despite its heavy weight. The car handles well, although it suffers from body roll in GTA Vice City Stories. It comes with good drifting properties, although its RWD layout sometimes leads to oversteer and tailspins; these problems are more apparent in the GTA San Andreas rendition, due to its lighter weight distribution and softer suspension. In GTA San Andreas, the Sentinel's top speed of 163 km/h (101 mph) makes it the second fastest four-door car in the game. Also, the Sentinel in all games are known to be durable due to its luxury build and heavy weight, which can withstand a large amounts of damage before destroyed, making it a suitable choice for street racing, pursuits, getaways and as a cover in shootouts.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

As a sport compact executive coupe, the GTA IV Sentinel reaches a superb top speed, but not far from the fastest vehicles in the game. It has above-average acceleration, and reaches its top speed fairly quickly as well. The Sentinel's suspension is rather soft, and it tends to roll when going around tight bends at high speed; the rear of the car also tends to bounce about when traveling on uneven roads. Its handling is above average, but at high speeds it loses a lot of grip and easily spins out of control due to the lack of weight in the rear. But if controlled right, its speed and grip can be combined to produce almost-professional like drifts that can be used to slide into sharp turns and back alleyways to evade the police without difficulty. Nonetheless, it is arguably the best choice in the modern category in multiplayer racing.

Performance Stats on Rockstar Social Club.

Returning to GTA V, the car has massive improvements, such as increase top speed and acceleration, braking distance and gear shifting. Crash deformation is acceptable, and can take multiple crashes to even deform the front end. The engine is strangely exposed to gun-fire, taking the most damage from gun-fire, which is strange to say it is completely covered. Crash deformation at higher speeds is high (quarter panels of the car may look to be "glitched" into the wheel wells if hit hard enough), and it isn't hard with this car to make the wheels jam in crashes, but the car can withstand a surprising amount of frontal impacts without failing. The Sentinel is a decent car to use in online races and is even better on Freemode sessions, thanks to its very smooth and precise driving which compensates for its (relatively) low acceleration compared to other cars.

VariantsEdit

Mafia SentinelEdit

Main article: Mafia Sentinel

The Mafia Sentinel, a gang variant of the Sentinel from GTA III, also known as the Leone Sentinel in GTA Liberty City Stories. Only Leones drive this vehicle.

Sentinel XSEdit

Main article: Sentinel XS

The tuned version of the Sentinel, featured in GTA Vice City, GTA Vice City Stories, GTA IV, and GTA V, which has a better top speed and acceleration than the regular one. Curiously the standard Sentinel is more expensive than the XS model in GTA V.

Special VariantsEdit

  • In GTA Vice City, a unique black Sentinel is the target's getaway vehicle in the mission "Hit The Courier". The player can obtain the car by diligently killing the driver of the car as soon as she enters it, but must not exit the car and close its door until they enter a garage or complete the mission, as the car will lock itself again.
  • In GTA IV, a Sentinel is requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts, appearing with a uniquely candy blue and black body color, similar to that of the "XS" Sentinel. As a new Sentinel will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to S&M Auto Sales, the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another.

Prominent Appearances in MissionsEdit

Grand Theft Auto IIIEdit

  • In the mission "Bait", Catalina has sent three Colombian Cartel death squads to kill Claude. The death squads consist of three Sentinels with four men each; the Sentinel was picked as these are the fastest and best-handling four-door vehicle (excluding emergency vehicles). Claude is directed to lead the Colombians into a Yakuza ambush organized by Asuka.
  • In the mission Dead Skunk in the Trunk, Joey Leone orders Claude to take one Manana with a Leone dead body in the trunk, in the front of the Greasy Joe's Café, but there are two Forelli gang members in two Sentinels overseeing the car, the player needs to steal the car, make a run-away opposite the Forelli Brothers, and bring the car successful to the Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard.
  • In the mission Gone Fishing, if the player doesn't kill Ray's partner in the beach, he will enter a Sentinel and make a run for it.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice CityEdit

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City StoriesEdit

The Sentinel is prominently featured multiple times in GTA Liberty City Stories, all of which are depicted with a dark gray/black body color:

  • A black Sentinel is featured during a cutscene in "The Guns of Leone", during which Salvatore Leone charges into the Red Light District to exert revenge on the Sindaccos, running over an unsuspecting Sindacco member on the way. The car is unobtainable as the car turns into a Mafia Sentinel after the cutscene ends.
  • Four black Sentinels are prominently driven by hitmen hired by Ma Cipriani in "No Son of Mine"; as soon as the hitmen exit one such Sentinel, the player can easily attain the car. The cars are programmed to be heavy, which allows the player to push aside other cars without affecting the Sentinel's performance or trajectory.
  • The same form of Sentinels mention above can also be found during "A Walk in the Park", when Roger C. Hole and his body guards arrive at Belleville Park in three such cars parked in a row. Once the player manages to kill R.C. Hole and the body guards before they reach their cars, the player can take any of the cars to their garage; otherwise, if R.C. Hole manages to flee to the second car, the car's weight is reset to normal while the first and third cars retain their heavy weight. The Sentinels also received increased health for the mission.
  • The last appearance of the black Sentinel is during "Making Toni", when it serves as the player's mode of transport for the mission and is fireproof. The car can be obtained by partially submerging the car in a shallow shoreline, failing the mission; otherwise, the car is driven away by Mickey Hamfists in the end of the mission.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Sentinel is only featured in two of GTA V's missions.

  • In the mission Father/Son, Michael and Franklin take Amanda's red Sentinel and use it to save Jimmy from the men who steal Michael's yacht. However, after Franklin jumps from the yatch and is caught in the Sentinel, the Sentinel's engine breaks down due to it being shot several times by the thieves. This then prompts the player to take the car to Los Santos Customs to repair it, which also introduces them to car modding.
  • The car can be seen again later in the mission Reuniting the Family parked outside Bean Machine.

Notable OwnersEdit

LocationsEdit

Sentinels are generally found throughout the business districts of all the cities; some can be seen driving in the suburbs and wealthy parts of town as well.

Grand Theft Auto IIIEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Vice CityEdit

  • Can always be found at Sunshine Autos, whether the player owns the business or not.

Grand Theft Auto AdvanceEdit

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City StoriesEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City StoriesEdit

Grand Theft Auto IV & Episodes From Liberty CityEdit

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

The Sentinel in GTA Online is extremely rare:
