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

"German engineering and design taken very, very seriously. This convertible Zion model is guaranteed to put the wind in any senior executive combover."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com Description of Zion Cabrio

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

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. The vehicle has a longer wheel base than the Sentinel, and has an extended rear fascia. The front is exactly the same as the Sentinels, featuring a plain curved grille with radiator covers underneath another fascia.

The Zion Cabrio often comes sported with a small lip-spoiler, whereas the Zion doesn't. The roof on the Zion Cabrio is made of textile fabrics, that fold up in one piece, unlike other vehicles where each section of the roof retracts in pieces.

Performance

GTA V

The Zion has an average performance line, having a good handling and turn cycle, a good braking distance, and a acceptable top speed. Its main issues are to do with its engine, as its acceleration is among the worst of the Coupes class. It can take around 13 seconds to reach an average speed of 60 mph. Deformation is also quite appalling, taking only several head on crashes to make negative cambers on the wheels, slowing the car down, and majorly effecting steering and braking.

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 Übermacht 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 Zehn, 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 Zions are:
  • 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.
