Glendale is a four-passenger vintage sedan, engineered and manufactured by in-game German automobile company Benefactor.
For a first time Glendale caught attention of gamers in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and then it migrated to Vice City Stories and San Andreas, but then it disappeared from the series and wasn't seen in GTA 4, nor in GTA 4 addons, nor in GTA 5. The situation changed, however, as Rockstar published update "I'm Not a Hipster" for the fifth part, where among other stuff, there were old-good Glendale, he was seriously changed though, it is no more an American vintage car mimicking American cars of mid XX century, but a German one mimicking ones of 70s-90s.
Underneath the crowl of Benefactor Glendale there is a diesel straight-six engine, and the weight of the automobile is a standard 1600 kilograms, and it's wheels are powered by rear drive. Actual top speed of Glendale is about 152 kilometres per hour, and it reaches it in scary 16.5 seconds. Glendale is quiet an old sedan, and it has noticeable problems with a ganging and general handling. And it is less durable than other sedans. Also, despite it's bad technical characteristics, Glendale has a ridiculous price of $200000 (two hundred thousands), which is, I guess, a Rockstar's joke. Among pros there is probably only a rather vast potential for tuning.
Benefactor Glendale has real-life prototypes: Merceds-Benz W123, W112 and BMW E3 3.0Si.
