The Age Prophetie (pro-fe-tie) is Age's luxury sports coupe. As Age's customers are starting to age (no pun intended), Age's cars have become more luxurious. However, in its racing-spec form, the Prophetie is still as viciously fast as ever. The car is also quite stable. The Prophetie is Age's starting car in Ridge Racer Type 4, which was under the name Age Solo.
In Ridge Racer Type 4, the Prophetie resembles a Tommykaira ZZ-1 while in Ridge Racer (PSP), it resembles a mix between a Peugeot 205 Convertible and a Honda S2000. In Ridge Racer 6 and Ridge Racer 7, it resembles a 2003 Dodge Viper SRT10. The Prophetie also appears in Ridge Racer 3D, where it resembles a Honda S2000.
Ridge Racer Type 4
In Ridge Racer Type 4, the Prophetie is depicted to have similar sizes to the Assoluto Promessa, yet the Prophetie's considerably lighter, which compensated its lack of power compared to its Stage 1 stablemates. Power comes courtesy of a 2.0 liter double overhead cam inline-4.

Ridge Racer 6 and 7
Ridge Racer 6 and 7's iteration of the Prophetie now feature a minor model change, signified by the new headlight, new rear end, and new bumpers, with no change in the engine and transmission department.
Ridge Racer 6's Prophetie has a Mild drift type, which doesn't slide as much as Standard or Dynamic drift types, but compensated with high inertial drift rate, thus increasing the car's normal charge rate. Compared to the Kamata Fiera, it has slightly less acceleration performance.
In Ridge Racer 7, the Prophetie excels in three aspects: nitrous performance, handling and inertial drift. Although it's not as nimble as the Terrazi Wild Gang, it's quite practically the best handling starting car for Category 4. The acceleration performance is also improved at this point, although its top speed is a smidge lower than the Fiera.
- ""The Prophetie was the machine that started the luxury compact boom. Its glamorous body and low center of gravity are the secrets to its success. The combination of AGE's newest technology and traditional craftsmanship have created a beautiful, classic style that no automated production line could ever recreate.""

- In Ridge Racer 6 and 7, when selecting the car, the announcer will pronounce "Prophetie" as the French "pro-fe-see" rather than the Anglicized "pro-fe-tee". However, in Ridge Racer (PSP), when selected, the announcer pronounces it in the Anglicized pronunciation.
