- "A German beauty of timeless passion and sleek design. When you're interested in class and an overpowered engine, there is no other choice."
- ―Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description of Zion
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.
Grand Theft Auto 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.
