Stretch E

A Stretch E in The Ballad of Gay Tony (Rear quarter view).

The Benefactor Stretch E is a limousine variant of the Schafter in The Ballad of Gay Tony.


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 seemingly less extravagant, as it lacks any additions aside for two more seats in the rear compartment. 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 Serrano, but more quiet. This could imply it is powered by a V12. Being shorter than the Stretch, the Stretch E has slightly better performance, being capable of more tighter cornering and better acceleration. However, its top speed is identical: 93 mph (150 km/h).


The Stretch E is used as the main vehicle in the mission Frosting on the Cake and this mission is the only time when one can acquire the vehicle, either by completing the mission or by exiting the vehicle as soon as the mission starts and shooting Evan to death. Like the vast majority of road vehicles, Stretch Es only spawn in traffic when another Stretch E is already spawned in the game.


  • It shares the same rim design as GTA IV's version of the 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. It is also a reference to its real life inspiration, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class limo.
  • The Stretch E in Frosting on the Cake is lustered, which is unique for this car.
  • The Stretch E can be washed at a car wash.
