For the standard counterpart, see Buffalo.
"Spotted speeding away from many Los Santos crime scenes, this is a special edition version of the updated 60s muscle car. The sports engine pack, aerodynamic body styling package and yearly upgrades make the price worthwhile."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Bravado Buffalo S is a sports sedan in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

Formerly known as the "second generation" Buffalo, it is the facelifted version of the existing Buffalo, with a supercharged engine, new front fascia, rims and taillights based on the 2012-2014 Dodge Charger SRT8.

The Buffalo S has a much more aggressive appearance, giving it the look of the modern American sports car. The front fascia consists of one large grille that extends from the hood to the front bumper and two smaller grilles near the tyres. On the side, there are two small CFRP panels. It also has unique rims that consist of ten spokes. The rear of the Buffalo S remains largely the same, except for the taillights, based on the Acura NSX concept.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Buffalo S improves upon the regular Buffalo with slightly better acceleration and top speed. Outside of that, it remains mostly a half-decent car. It lacks in both acceleration and top speed when compared to other Sports cars. Its handling is remarkably boatish, lacking in response time and cornering radius. What it does right, however, is remaining stuck to the ground; the Buffalo S is a very hard car to spin out, and when it does spin out, it's also a very easy car to correct. Braking power is great and reliable. Crash deformation is acceptable, being able to shrug off a mild beating, but otherwise will fail after a decent number of hits.

Notable Owners


Grand Theft Auto Online



  • The default radio stations for the Buffalo S are Radio Los Santos, The Lab and West Coast Classics.
  • After the 1.14 update, the 2nd generation Buffalo has been renamed to the Buffalo S, to avoid confusion between the two models.
  • Although it is manufactured by Bravado, there is a Vapid logo on the front seat floor mats, likely reused assets from a Vapid vehicle.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • In Franklin's trailer, at the six second mark, a red Buffalo S can be seen at the Car Wash on Innocence Boulevard, implying that both models spawned in traffic during the beta, however only the Buffalo spawns in the final version. This is the same case with the Bodhi (being a vehicle found on streets in the early stages of the game and made only available for a single character in the final game).
  • Franklin's Buffalo S' license plate reads "FC1988", an apparent nod to Franklin Clinton being born in 1988.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Despite claiming it has an intercooler, evidently by the "Exposed Intercooler" modification, the car lacks a turbocharger. Intercoolers are only typically found on supercharged or turbocharged vehicles. It is possible the modification is actually referring to the car radiator, however.
