"Powerful, understated, reliable. You have absolutely none of these qualities, so it's important to you that your car does. The new Benefactor Schafter screams corporate anonymity just as much as its predecessor, so to justify the massive price hike we've thrown in a few flourishes and a plush interior where you can screw your secretary's secretary in comfort. Armored edition available."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Benefactor Schafter V12 is a luxury four-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Executives and Other Criminals update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Schafter V12 is a high-performance version of the Schafter, which, as the name suggest, sports an upgraded V12 engine and a sportier appearance. Aside from the new interior and the redesigned details in the front and rear bumpers, the Schafter V12 looks nearly identical to the standard model. The wheel arches in the Schafter V12 are also tweaked from its basic counterpart.

The Schafter V12 is dramatically different than the normal counterpart, as it sports an upgraded version of the original apparent V12 (sounding higher-revving and louder likely due to big-bored exhaust manifolds and tuned camshafts/valve timing, despite its cover and model remaining identical). This provides more power to its rear wheels, offering better acceleration and subsequently a higher top speed. Traction has also been improved and braking times reduced slightly.

Its outright performance is much higher than its simple appearance implies, with acceleration being mostly comparable to the Zentorno and a top speed which rivals the Adder. Handling is a bit of a mixed bag: it has a very tight cornering radius and strong response time (true to its Sedan origins), but the extremely powerful engine makes it prone to oversteer and lose control. Keeping it under control is no easy feat in the corners, as the torque put out by the engine is significantly more than the car can handle.

  • The Schafter V12 is in the "Sports" class, contrary to its armored counterpart, which is in the "Sedans" class.
