==== 1st Generation ====
  +
The first-generation Schafter is in a lot of ways similar in design to a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W211|Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W211)]] but was altered to appear with a longer wheelbase, bulkier body, (in this case, it would be a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W220|S-Class (W220)]] in particular) and less luxurious fascias. Its rear fascia seems to be derived from a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz C215|Mercedes-Benz CL-Class (C215)]], most likely the AMG variant. The front also bear resemblance to the [[wp:SsangYong Chairman|Ssangyong Chairman H]] (which is based on a Mercedes-Benz platform) with the headlights from the [[Wp:Maybach 57|Maybach 57]] and [[Wp:Maybach 62|Maybach 62]].
  +
===''The Ballad of Gay Tony''===
  +
==== 2nd Generation ====
  +
In [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]], the second-generation Schafter is featured. It has a more modernized appearance, with a general design based on a [http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_W212 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W212)]. Adding to the more modern appearance is the presence of LED strips below the two bi-xenon bulbs in the headlights, and LED taillights. the front heavily resembles the [[wp:Mercedes-Benz C216|Mercedes-Benz CL-Class C216]].
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], the 2nd gen Schafter always spawns as the prominent vehicle, unlike the 1st gen version, which doesn't return. In this game, the Schafter retains its design as in TBoGT.
   
The first-generation Schafter is similar in design to a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W220|1999-2005 Mercedes-Benz S-Class]] but was modified to appear with a smaller body and less flamboyant fascias. It's rear fascia seems to be derived from a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz_C215|1999–2006 Mercedes CL-Class]], most likely the AMG variant.

In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the second-generation Schafter is featured. It has a more modernized appearance, with a general body design similar to that of a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W212|W212 Mercedes-Benz E-class]], a front fascia clearly derivative of that of a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz C216|C216 Mercedes-Benz CL-class]], and a rear fascia similar to that of a [[wp:Mercedes-Benz W212|W212 Mercedes-Benz E-class]]. Adding to the more modern appearance is the presence of LED strips below the two bi-xenon bulbs in the headlights, and LED taillights.

The Schafter is powered by an apparent 6.5L supercharged V12 (according to badges) coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a RWD configuration. Although the large 6.5L supercharged V12 is quite powerful, the car feels slow because of its weight. Due to said weight, acceleration is below average, compared to other vehicles in its class, such as the [[Oracle]] and [[Presidente]]. Top speed is very good for the vehicle's engine statistics and specifications. The car handling is above average, although a slight hint of oversteer is detectable, the Schafter's firm suspension makes it a pleasure in low-speed cornering. The suspension is a perfect balance of firm and soft, keeping the Schafter planted on the road in turns, while not jarring over bumps. Braking is fair, and ABS is available, though not standard. Crash deformation and engine build quality are excellent; the car is capable of sustaining multiple direct impacts, and can also take a fair amount of gunfire before the engine stalls or inflames. The "Russian Mafia" Schafter has a slightly higher top speed than its unmodified counterpart.

{{GTA IV Vehicle Stats
The Schafter in GTA IV is powered by a 6.5L supercharged V12 coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a RWD configuration. Although a 6.5L supercharged V12 is quite powerful for a car of its class, it feels slow. However it is quite a heavy vehicle, so acceleration is below average, compared to other vehicles in its class, such as the [[Oracle]] and [[Presidente]]. Top speed is a little bit above average: 145 mph (232 km/h) even though the speedometer says 155 mph (248 km/h) is the top speed, the Schafter struggles to shift gear at 145 mph (232 km/h), therefore, limiting the advertized speed by a small fraction. The car Handling is above average—although a slight hint of oversteer is detectable, the Schafter's firm suspension makes it a joy in low-speed cornering. The suspension is a perfect balance of firm and soft, keeping the Schafter planted on the road in turns, while not jarring over bumps. Braking is fair, and ABS is available, though not standard. Crash deformation and engine build quality are excellent; the car is capable of sustaining multiple direct impacts, and can also take a great amount of gunfire before the engine gives off or bursts into flames. The Russian Mafia Schafter has a slightly higher top speed than it's unmodified counterpart at 160 mph (256 km/h). But the same problem as the standard Schafter remains. The speedometer says the top speed is 170 mph (272 km/h), but it struggles to shift gear at 160 mph (256 km/h).

===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
The Schafter in GTA V is powered by the same V12 engine (according to the badges), but shares a similar engine sound with the [[Tailgater]], [[Sentinel]] and [[Sentinel XS]], [[Gresley]] and [[Surano]], all of which have lower power V6-sounding engines. After the [[Fugitive]], the Schafter is considered to be the second fastest Sedan-class vehicle in the game, with a higher top speed than any other (except the [[Super Diamond]]) and excellent acceleration. Unlike other cars such as the [[Tailgater]], it doesn't have as much of a tendency to oversteer because of excessive traction, therefore making the Schafter an ideal car to use in Sedan-class races in [[GTA Online]], as well as a good choice as a getaway vehicle for [[The Big Score (GTA V)|The Big Score]]. Crash deformation across all variants is acceptable.
   
The 6.5L supercharged V12 engine is not found in real-life Mercedes-Benz S-Class cars, which instead have twin-turbo V12 engines with 5.5L (S600) or 6.0L (S65 AMG) displacements. The game designers may have intended for the Schafter's engine to be an "amalgamation" of the powerplants found in the S55 AMG (5.4 L (5439 cc) supercharged V8) and S65 AMG (6.0L twin-turbo V12).[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mercedes-Benz_engines]

The Schafter also has its coupe variant, the [[Schwartzer]].
   
[[File:Schafterad.png|thumb|236px|A Schafter advertisement.]]A tuned version of the Schafter (similar to S-Class variants from the Mercedes-AMG division, most likely the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG) is commonly found in [[Hove Beach]], [[Broker]], being driven by the [[Russian Mafia]]. It comes in black, and has black rims, sport body kit, and no front emblem. However, the Russian Schafter can be resprayed to any color. The black rims can also be recolored back to the standard silver. The grille would remain black though. If you respray the Schafter to a specific silver coat, it comes with the same blacked-out rims from the Russian Mafia variant.

Another possible variant has the default bodykit and colors but sports the blacked-out rims like on the Russian Mafia Schafter. It could be a coding mix-up or game glitch.

{{Next-Gen}}

For the [[GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals]] update, two variants are added in the game based on the vehicle. Both have a redesigned interior, updated performance and slight changes in the lower area of the front fascia:
   
===The Ballad of Gay Tony===
+
====Schafter LWB====
  +
{{Main|Schafter LWB}}
  +
A '''L'''ong '''W'''heel '''B'''ase variant of the Schafter appears in ''GTA V''. It is essentially the same as the standard Schafter, yet now features a window channel in between pillars B and C.
   
Similarly, the Ballad of Gay Tony's Schafter ("Second Generation") is also available in a modified form, featuring a different grille design, a low-riding body kit, a pair of single exhaust pipes (as opposed to two for each pair on a regular variant), and the possibility of appearing with one of two body color styles, including a single all-round body color, and a two-tone scheme with the darker color painted over the trunk lid, roof and a portion of the hood lid.
+
An armored version, dubbed the "'''[[Schafter LWB (Armored)]]'''" exists. It holds the same design, yet features window armoring around the pillars and window frames and offers more protection to the player, engine, and deformation of the chassis and window pillars.
   
The Ballad of Gay Tony's Schafter also serves as the basis for a limousine dubbed the "[[Stretch E]]".

===Special Variants===
* The Schafter is one of the two only vehicles in the [[GTA IV era]] that has two generations. The other being the [[Faggio]].
+
A tuned version of the Schafter (similar to either a Mercedes-Benz E 55 AMG or a [[wp:Brabus E V12|Brabus E]]) are commonly found in [[Hove Beach]], being driven by the [[Russian Mafia]]. It is black, has black wheels, lacks the chrome trim on the trunk lid and sports a body kit including a debadged black grille. The Russian Schafter can be resprayed to any color of the regular Schafter, this will also cause it to lose its unique wheel color unless painted a certain silver shade that is accompanied by black wheels. The custom grille however will always remain black.
* In the opening scene of [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], some [[Algonquin Triads|Triad gangsters]] are seen loading [[heroin]] into a black Schafter. The same car is seen being lowered onto the dock while [[Niko Bellic]] is waiting for [[Roman Bellic|Roman]]. This therefore makes it the first car seen in the GTA IV era. Mikhail Faustin is being driven in a similar Schafter in the mission [[The Master and the Molotov]].
+
* In [[A Revenger's Tragedy]], a rare Schafter can be found at the abandoned [[Alderney Casino]]. It is the Russian Mob variant, with black rims, but has a dark red paint job. No matter how many times the player sprays a Schafter in a [[Pay 'n' Spray]], the car will remain the same color. A Schafter in the same color can be seen in the TLAD mission [[Politics]], in the [[Francis International Airport, Dukes|airport]]. Although dismounting Johnny's Hexer is risky in the airport, the Schafter can be stolen.
+
<gallery position="center">
* There is a particularly rare color variant of the Schafter with a silver body and black rims; Schafters of this color are only seen while the player is already driving a Schafter.
+
Schafter-GTA4-modified-front.jpg|Russian Mafia Schafter (<small>[[:Image:Schafter-GTA4-modified-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]</small>).
* The two default radio stations in the Schafter are [[Jazz Nation Radio 108.5]] and [[Fusion FM]] in Grand Theft Auto IV and [[K109 The Studio]] and [[IF99 - International Funk]] in The Ballad of Gay Tony.
+
</gallery>
* The name Schafter is probably meant to be similar to the word "Shafter", which can be assumed to be a reference to a penis, true to [[Rockstar]]'s distinct sense of humor
+
* When you are driving a Schafter in Fishmarket South, underneath the main road you can find a magenta or a fluro pink Schafter parked across the street from The Pier 45 resturant.
+
Similarly, the Second Generation Schafter is also available in a modified form, featuring a different grille, a body kit, dual exhaust, larger chrome wheels, and the possibility of appearing with monotone or two tone paint.
* The Russian Mafia variant appears in [[The Cousins Bellic]].
+
* Schafter is German for "steward".
+
The Ballad of Gay Tony's Schafter also serves as the base for the [[Stretch E]] limousine.
*In the loading sequence, the concept art shows [[Niko Bellic ]]escaping from the police in a red Schafter.
+
*The Second Generation Schafter shares a similar rim design with the [[Feltzer]].
+
A unused version of the Schafter appears as an unmodified variant of the default vehicle. It's unobtainable without modifications.
*[[Jimmy Pegorino]] owned a black Schafter that looked alike the Russian Mob variant except the sports kit and the grille found on the Russian Mob Variant.
+
*The first generation Schafter most likely has LCI taillights.

"Good-looking yet utilitarian, sexy yet asexual, slender yet terrifyingly powerful, the Schafter is German engineering at its very finest."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Benefactor Schafter is a luxury four-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

The Schafter has been redesigned in The Ballad of Gay Tony (nicknamed the "Second Generation") sporting a much more luxurious and modern look.

Design Edit

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

1st Generation Edit

The first-generation Schafter is in a lot of ways similar in design to a Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W211) but was altered to appear with a longer wheelbase, bulkier body, (in this case, it would be a S-Class (W220) in particular) and less luxurious fascias. Its rear fascia seems to be derived from a Mercedes-Benz CL-Class (C215), most likely the AMG variant. The front also bear resemblance to the Ssangyong Chairman H (which is based on a Mercedes-Benz platform) with the headlights from the Maybach 57 and Maybach 62.

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

2nd Generation Edit

In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the second-generation Schafter is featured. It has a more modernized appearance, with a general design based on a Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W212). Adding to the more modern appearance is the presence of LED strips below the two bi-xenon bulbs in the headlights, and LED taillights. the front heavily resembles the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class C216.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

In Grand Theft Auto V, the 2nd gen Schafter always spawns as the prominent vehicle, unlike the 1st gen version, which doesn't return. In this game, the Schafter retains its design as in TBoGT.

Performance Edit

Grand Theft Auto IV Edit

Schafter-TBoGT-Engine-HD

Schafter's engine.

The Schafter is powered by an apparent 6.5L supercharged V12 (according to badges) coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a RWD configuration. Although the large 6.5L supercharged V12 is quite powerful, the car feels slow because of its weight. Due to said weight, acceleration is below average, compared to other vehicles in its class, such as the Oracle and Presidente. Top speed is very good for the vehicle's engine statistics and specifications. The car handling is above average, although a slight hint of oversteer is detectable, the Schafter's firm suspension makes it a pleasure in low-speed cornering. The suspension is a perfect balance of firm and soft, keeping the Schafter planted on the road in turns, while not jarring over bumps. Braking is fair, and ABS is available, though not standard. Crash deformation and engine build quality are excellent; the car is capable of sustaining multiple direct impacts, and can also take a fair amount of gunfire before the engine stalls or inflames. The "Russian Mafia" Schafter has a slightly higher top speed than its unmodified counterpart.

Both the first and second generation performs the same.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Schafter in GTA V is powered by the same V12 engine (according to the badges), but shares a similar engine sound with the Tailgater, Sentinel and Sentinel XS, Gresley and Surano, all of which have lower power V6-sounding engines. After the Fugitive, the Schafter is considered to be the second fastest Sedan-class vehicle in the game, with a higher top speed than any other (except the Super Diamond) and excellent acceleration. Unlike other cars such as the Tailgater, it doesn't have as much of a tendency to oversteer because of excessive traction, therefore making the Schafter an ideal car to use in Sedan-class races in GTA Online, as well as a good choice as a getaway vehicle for The Big Score. Crash deformation across all variants is acceptable.

The Schafter also has its coupe variant, the Schwartzer.

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

This article or section refers to content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V, that is not featured on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.
For a complete list of the features of the "enhanced" version of Grand Theft Auto V, please see here.
V

For the GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals update, two variants are added in the game based on the vehicle. Both have a redesigned interior, updated performance and slight changes in the lower area of the front fascia:

Schafter LWBEdit

Main article: Schafter LWB

A Long Wheel Base variant of the Schafter appears in GTA V. It is essentially the same as the standard Schafter, yet now features a window channel in between pillars B and C.

An armored version, dubbed the "Schafter LWB (Armored)" exists. It holds the same design, yet features window armoring around the pillars and window frames and offers more protection to the player, engine, and deformation of the chassis and window pillars.

Schafter V12Edit

Main article: Schafter V12

A modified Schafter that, as the name suggest, sports an upgraded V12 engine and sportier appearance.

An armored version, dubbed the "Schafter V12 (Armored)" exists. It holds the same design, yet features window armoring around the pillars and window frames and offers more protection to the player, engine, and deformation of the chassis and window pillars.

Special VariantsEdit

A tuned version of the Schafter (similar to either a Mercedes-Benz E 55 AMG or a Brabus E) are commonly found in Hove Beach, being driven by the Russian Mafia. It is black, has black wheels, lacks the chrome trim on the trunk lid and sports a body kit including a debadged black grille. The Russian Schafter can be resprayed to any color of the regular Schafter, this will also cause it to lose its unique wheel color unless painted a certain silver shade that is accompanied by black wheels. The custom grille however will always remain black.

Similarly, the Second Generation Schafter is also available in a modified form, featuring a different grille, a body kit, dual exhaust, larger chrome wheels, and the possibility of appearing with monotone or two tone paint.

The Ballad of Gay Tony's Schafter also serves as the base for the Stretch E limousine.

A unused version of the Schafter appears as an unmodified variant of the default vehicle. It's unobtainable without modifications.

Locations Edit

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

  • In a large majority of Tony's missions and the Club Management missions, Tony's Schafter will be available to be driven to your destination.
  • Spawns in Algonquin when already driving one.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

Notable OwnersEdit

  • Mikhail Faustin can be seen riding in a unique all black Schafter during the mission The Master and the Molotov. It has black rims and a silver grille.
  • Jimmy Pegorino also owns a black Schafter, with black rims and a standard silver Schafter grille, featured and used in the mission Pegorino's Pride.
  • Gay Tony owns a black Second Generation Schafter, which serves a chauffeured vehicle courtesy of Maisonette 9. He also owns a pink First Generation Schafter, as his personal transport.
  • Packie McReary may own a Schafter, as a white one appears outside his house in Waste Not Want Knots.
  • Timm drove a second generation Schafter as a rental vehicle, until it broke down.

Trivia Edit

GeneralEdit

  • The name Schafter may be a crude reference to the shaft of a penis or the act of shafting, slang for sexual intercourse.
  • The Schafter's strong build quality is likely a reference to its real life counterpart. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class are widely known to its durability and reliability compared to other executive cars in its class.
  • Its V12 engine may be inspired by the Brabus E, a rare high-performance version of the W211 and W212 generations of Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is engine-swapped with an AMG-tuned V12.
  • Counting all variants, including the unobtainable 2nd generation variant in TBoGT and the armored variants in GTA Online, the Schafter has by far the greatest number of variants of any other car in a GTA game (1st gen, 2nd gen stock, 2nd gen modified, Stretch E, Turreted Limo, LWB, LWB Armored, V12, V12 Armored).
  • The default radio stations are:

  • The slightly less luxurious version of the second generation Schafter can be recreated almost completely at Los Santos Customs, with the only differences being the lack of a Benefactor badge on the grille and notches not being present on the custom rims.
  • There is a color available at Los Santos Customs, Schafter Purple, named after the car. It is also the color of the Schafter in the GTA Online mission, Ballas to the Wall.
