Manufacturer Benefactor (GTA IV)

The Benefactor Stretch E is a limousine version of the Second Generation Schafter, available exclusively in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Description

Design

StretchE-TBOGT-rear

Rear quarter view

The Stretch E is nothing more than a regular TBoGT rendition Schafter with an extended wheelbase. While sharing the same name as the Stretch, the Stretch E is clearly less luxurious, as it lacks any additions aside two more seats in the rear compartment. It also lacks lights on the sides of the doors. The body-style is based on a 2010 Mercedes E-class W212 Limousine. The Stretch E does not have the engine sound that the Schafter has but a sound that may derive from the Primo as it sounds like a V6, not a V12 as the Schafter has.

Performance

Being shorter than the Stretch, the Stretch E has slightly better performance, being capable of tighter cornering and better acceleration. Its top speed is 301 km/h (187 mph).

Locations

The Ballad of Gay Tony

The Stretch E is used as the escape vehicle in the mission Frosting on the Cake and is the only time when one can acquire the vehicle. Like the the vast majority of road vehicles, Stretch Es only spawn in traffic when the player is driving another Stretch E. But some might appear after playing/Replaying Frosting on the Cake for some limited time, even if you abandon the car for the mission.

Trivia

  • Despite featuring the updated body shape of TBoGT's Schafter, the Stretch E has the same wheel design as GTA IV's older Schafter.
  • The vehicle's name is an obvious play on the term "stretchy" due to the fact it is a longer version of a normal length car.
  • The car's name may also be a reference to the car's design, looking somewhat like a limousine version of a Mercedes E class.
  • The Stretch E in Frosting on the Cake is lustered which is unique for this car.
  • Strangely, after repeating (or failing) this mission many times via Luis' Phone, the Stretch E may appear in a series of unique paintjobs, such as metallic blue/teal, metallic olive, light metallic brown or dark brown or dark metallic gold. These paintjobs are not found in the streets or via respraying. However, the blue/teal paintjob can be found on modified Serranos when the player resprays the car many times, sometimes when Henrique delivers a Serrano to the player, or randomly on the streets if the player is already driving one.
  • Oddly, the Stretch E has a top speed that is 42mph greater than that of the Schafter which it is based on.
