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.
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

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


Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The Schwartzer features very aggressive formations which appear to have been inspired by German design styling featured on the Mercedes-Benz E550 Coupé for the compact wheelbase, while the headlights and grille are mostly inspired from the flagship C216 CL-Class. The tail lights, however, are taken from the Mercedes-Benz E550 Sedan. Meanwhile, the side windows are styled off of a Mercedes-Benz C63 Coupé. It becomes very obvious that the vehicle is the coupe version of the Schafter, due to the fact that the C207 is the coupe variant of the W212 (which the Schafter is based on). The car also bears a subtle resemblance to a C209 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class, the predecessor of the C207 E-Class.

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.

On the sides, vertical thin vents occupy the area of the front fenders between the wheel arches and the doors. What appears to be CFRP strips can be seen on the skirt area. The car features rear view mirrors whose outer shells are finished in carbon-fibre, while the trimmings surrounding the windows of the car are finished in black.

The rear of the car draws the same design elements from the Schafter, being the boot/trunk lip and the rear lights. However, the bumper sports a concave design and the square-shaped exhausts are larger in appearance. The central portion where the exhausts and the vent are located is also finished in carbon-fibre.

The car may spawn in a variety of single colours for the body and the stitching. It also uses a unique set of wheels, consisting of nine thin spokes with concave centers, wrapped in low-profile tyres.

Compared to its four-door equivalent, the 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 Schwartzer is also capable of performing drifts around sharp corners without the risk of a spinout if at the hands of an exceptionally skilled driver.

In the original version, the vehicle shares its engine sound with the Stretch, Super Diamond and Elegy RH8. However, in the enhanced version, the vehicle has a unique V8 sound that is richer and revs up to 7000 RPM. This engine sound is completely unique to this vehicle.

Special Variants

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Two unique Schwartzers spawns at Premium Deluxe Motorsport when the mission Repossession is available. A golden one is parked behind the showroom between a green Bullet and a grey first generstion Baller, and a red one which is parked inside the showroom itself. Both vehicles can spawn with any pearlescent luster from its default traffic color set, and thus has a 2/13 chance to spawn with either the unique worn silver or matte orange pearlescent color that cannot be obtained at Los Santos Customs or Beeker's Garage under normal circumstances.
    • To obtain the red Schwartzer inside the dealership, the player can simply fire a bullet into the interior to disrupt the mission, and then head inside to take the red Schwartzer.

  • 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.
  • The default radio stations of the car are Space 103.2 and The Lowdown 91.1.
  • In the original version, when seen from a distance, the Schwartzer seems to have the Schafter's front bumper and grille. This is probably the result of the copied LOD model from the Schafter.
    • 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, including the Serrano.
