"Say what you will about the Germans - they know luxury. And their economy is the only one worth a crap in Europe. This model has all kinds of extras - too many to list for legal reasons."

The Benefactor Schwartzer is a two-door coupé in Grand Theft Auto V.


This car features very aggressive formations which appear to have been inspired by German design styling featured on the C216 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG for the headlights and grille and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG coupé for the overall design. It becomes very obvious that this is the coupe version of the Schafter. The rear lights resemble those of a W212 Mercedes E-Class. This car also bears a similar look to the C209 Mercedes-Benz CLK This car has a heavily German inspired design.

At the base of the front bumper sporting influence is very prevalent. The front bumper features a main central vent whose base appears to have a CFRP insert. Either side of this vent there are two, less tall vents, whose inner edges are parallel to the outer edges of the central vent. Above the central vent there is a large main grille with chrome edges and a horizontal chrome strip splitting it into two halves. The headlamp units have curved lower edges which almost continue the curvature of the bottom edge of the grille. The bonnet/hood has a main elevated area, whose edges run from a top corner of the main grille to their corresponding windscreen corner.

The car features rear view mirrors whose outer shells are finished in CFRP.


Despite the Schwartzer being the coupé of the four-door Schafter, it has overall better performance. It is more agile and much quicker. The exhaust note sounds more powerful as well. The steering is quick but it also feels artificial with little to no connection to the road. It has better acceleration than the Sentinel XS. The handling and top speed is only superior to the Sentinel XS.


Template:Vehicle Stats





  • The car's name is a wordplay using the adjective for black in German (Schwarz), being a clear reference to Mercedes-Benz and their Black Series models, more specifically the 2012 C63 AMG Coupé Black Series.
  • In Grand Theft Auto Online the Schwartzer sells for $8,000 at Los Santos Customs.
  • When seen from a distance, the Schwartzer seems to have the Schafter's front bumper and grille. Either this is a glitch, a ripped copy of the LOD model, or in the beta, the Schwartzer originally had the Schafter's front design.
    • The Schafter's grille can be put back on in Los Santos Customs, by using the grille option "Big Badge". This option is also available on other Benefactor models, especially the Serrano.
  • The vehicle shares its engine sound with the StretchSuper Diamond and Elegy RH8.
  • The default radio station of the car is Space 103.2 and Lowdown FM.
