"This entry-level luxury car is for entry-level type guys - salesmen, marketing dorks, people at tech companies who want to feel like they've made it but they never really will. Show people what kind of man you want to be"
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Feltzer is a two-door convertible and sports car in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. Each renditions are meant to represent different generations of Mercedes-Benz roadsters. It is manufactured by Benefactor in the HD Universe.

Design

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the Feltzer is a German-style 1980s luxury convertible, and is based on the Mercedes-Benz SL (R107), most likely the 380SL. The car also appears to bear a few elements with typical American classic sports cars, giving it some muscle car-like traits. The Feltzer always spawns in its convertible form and can carry two occupants.

Grand Theft Auto IV

"Dark, sleek, and handsome..."
―Feltzer advertising slogan in GTA IV.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Benefactor Feltzer is now redesigned into a mid-level sports car, based on a 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK Brabus (R171). Feltzers may be seen with a folding hardtop, (like the real life SLK), a soft-top, or with the top down. Some are equipped with a badgeless black mesh grille, while others feature a standard three-bar grille with a Benefactor emblem. The Brabus influences are mostly seen on the rims. The Feltzer is equipped with a GPS system with a female voice, but only if the player leaves the "selected cars" (default) option in the audio menu.

Grand Theft Auto V

"It takes a certain type of special person to be able to handle a car like this. A trend-setter, an individual, a winner. The kind of risk-taker who goes after what they want without getting bogged down in the small print. Are you that person? Come to my showroom in Pillbox Hill and I will make you believe that you are. This car is HOT! It won’t last long at these highly competitive interest rates."
Simeon Yetarian

The Feltzer returns in Grand Theft Auto V, appearing to be more customized than previous iterations, with a wide body kit, larger wheels and side exit exhausts. The headlights seem to be the only other change, looking quite similar to the Rebla's. Also, the front indicator lights have been removed. It now resembles a shortened Mercedes-Benz SL (R230) with styling cues from a Mercedes-Benz SLK (R172), with major influences from both the SL 65 AMG Black Series and SLK 55 AMG Grand Edition variants. The "GT Wing" modification gives the car a spoiler identical to that of a Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM. It shares the same rim design with the Sentinel and the Fusilade.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Feltzer in GTA San Andreas has a good top speed, but its handling is rather unsatisfactory, as its light weight acts against it. It also has rather slow acceleration.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The GTA IV rendition of the Feltzer is powered by what sounds to be a small-displacement V8 engine coupled to a 5-speed semi-automatic gearbox in FR configuration. The Auto Eroticarwebsite states that the engine is a 3.8L Supercharged V8. The Feltzer has a top speed of around 85 to 90 mph, but is the slowest of the sports cars, even slower than the more compact Sentinel XS. Acceleration is decent, yet strong enough to easily break traction on the rear wheels when punched.

The Feltzer has developed a reputation for being one of the best drifting cars in the game due to the high level of torque generated by the supercharger. The suspension is firm and responsive, keeping the Feltzer level in the corners, albeit with some fishtailing at high speeds. These qualities provide an accurate representation of the unforgiving nature the Mercedes coupes provide. Braking is good, and ABS is an available option, though not standard. The Feltzer withstands high-speed frontal crashes well, thanks to its luxury build, and can sustain numerous frontal hits without failing or catching fire. The car can not withstand gunfire very well, however, and also leaves the player highly vulnerable if the player is driving with the top down.

Grand Theft Auto V

It accelerates quickly with a higher top speed than the GTA IV variant and that makes the car dangerous as the player is more prone to be ejected from the windshield. It shares its engine sound with the Carbonizzare. Compared to the other sports cars, it has a lower top speed, average acceleration, poorer braking, but higher traction. It is often regarded as one of the best drifting cars in the game due to it being back heavy, having a responsive suspension, and being easier to control. Its back-heavy distribution makes it slide out of control when cornering, however.

The GTA V rendition is now powered by a high-revving 6.0L supercharged V8 engine, according to the website. The engine cover appears to be a V8, which is coupled to a 6 speed gearbox in a front engine, rear wheel drive layout.

Special Variants

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • A bulletproof, damage-proof, explosion-proof and fireproof Feltzer can be found (and is used) in the final story mission, End of the Line. It is obtainable by just failing the mission by letting Tenpenny escape or let Sweet die and store the vehicle at the safehouse.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • A unique pink Feltzer owned by Gracie Ancelotti appears during "...I'll Take Her." Upon completion of the mission, the car is driven away to be disposed of by an NPC, but can be obtained if the player is quick on the draw. Alternatively, simply start the mission by driving to Gracie's house, but don't enter the marker. Instead, point your gun at Gracie. Gracie will leap over the wall and fail the mission, but the Feltzer will be unlocked and ready for the player to take.

This unique Feltzer is one of five vehicles in GTA IV referred to by name, the others being the "shitty beige Willard" from "It's Your Call", the "silver Blista" taken in "Clean Getaway", the Patriot from "The Puerto Rican Connection", and the Romero used in "Undertaker."

  • This same Feltzer can be found in The Ballad of Gay Tony during the mission Blog This!..., it can be obtained by taking the car out from the driveway with a helicopter and then push the vehicle with another car into the Lost Clubhouse parking lot. Be sure not to hurt Gracie or Tony, cause this will fail the mission.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • Fender Ketchup - On Carl Johnson's request, a Triad gang member ties Johnny Sindacco on the Feltzer's hood. Carl must then scare Johnny by driving recklessly with the Feltzer.
  • End of The Line - Carl Johnson uses a Feltzer to chase a ladder variant of the Fire Truck driven by Frank Tenpenny with Sweet Johnson hanging onto the ladder. Carl later catches Sweet to which he takes the wheel as per CJ's request while he shoots other policemen and rival gang members.

Trivia

General

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Feltzer-GTASA-DrivingSchool

The picture of the beta Feltzer. Note the different turn lights.

  • The Feltzer is so low, that Carl will hop over the door to get in, rather than open it. This won't happen if the door is open or missing.
  • Inside the Driving School of GTA San Andreas there is a picture of a beta Feltzer with different turn lights.
  • In GTA San Andreas, the only two missions to prominently feature the Feltzer ("Fender Ketchup" and "End of The Line") contain a scene with a character hanging on its windshield.
  • If the player takes the Feltzer to a TransFender during the mission Fender Ketchup, Johnny Sindacco is still tied to the windshield while the player is customizing the Feltzer.
  • Beta artwork of the Feltzer in San Andreas showed the Feltzer with 4 doors, this particular model is possibly based off a Mercedes-Benz W116.
  • The Feltzer is the last vehicle that the player drives in the main storyline of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • Gracie Ancelotti's pink Feltzer is referred to as purple by the stats menu.
  • It is possible to kill Stevie when he is driving away the pink Feltzer. This will not affect anything.
  • After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from the player, with the Feltzer fetching $3000.
  • In GTA IV, if the player takes a Feltzer with its top down to a car wash, the vehicle will be washed by hand (as with all convertibles).
  • According to Autoeroticar.com, the Feltzer was manufactured in 2003 during the events of GTA IV.
    • This is probably a homage to the Mercedes-Benz R171 SLK upon which the Feltzer is based on, which is also introduced in late 2003.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The engine bay of the Feltzer in GTA V is badged "Benefactor Linnengen".
    • This may be a parody of Mercedes-Benz's Kompressor line of supercharged engines.
  • When given a custom rear bumper at Los Santos Customs, one side will be mishapen.
    • This was fixed in the enhanced version so both sides touch the ground.
    • As with the Comet, the Feltzer has two different instrument panels depending on the version of the game. The original version's instrument panel is similar to one found in the E46 generation of the BMW 3 Series, while the enhanced version's instrument panel evokes the W140 Mercedes-Benz S-Class' dashboard, and is the only Benefactor vehicle with this dashboard.
  • The gauges in the enhanced version very closely resemble gauges that appear on late 80's Mercedes-Benz vehicles, particularly those found on high-end models.
  • The tail lights slightly overlap the indicator lights when braking or simply turning on the lights.
  • The Feltzer lacks exterior door handles.
