Not to be confused with the Serrano, an SUV with a similar name featured in TBoGT and GTA V.

"This is luxury reasserted. Right in your neighbour's face. Boom. You like that. That's right, you are better than him, and you could have his wife if you wanted. Try it on with her as soon as she sees this ride. You'll be a double benefactor." description.

The Benefactor Surano is a mid-size grand tourer featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


The main body of the roadster, bonnet/hood, contour of the sides, greenhouse area, and boot/trunk is inspired by the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Roadster. The front bumper, headlights, grille, air intakes, taillights, rear bumper, and exhausts are derived from the Jaguar F-Type. There are some elements of the Maserati GranTurismo found in the Surano as well, being the three small vents on the front side panel as well as the large but shallow side vent that looks to be a taller version of the ones found on the GranTurismo MC Stradale. The headlights of the Surano also resemble the headlights found on the Jaguar F-Type and 2013–present SRT Viper.

The front face of the car features a bumper with a CFRP insert, spanning the central two-thirds of the car's width. Above this, the most dominant feature of the car's front face is large central grille. The grille features chrome trim around the edges and a thick, chrome horizontal strip at mid-height. At the front of the two elevated areas of the bonnet/hood there are headlamp units that have LED strips as a contour to the outer edge and then a single circular lamp inset. The Benefactor emblem is mounted centrally between the two circular lamps.

The sides of the car are fairly simple; the wheelbase features side skirts that form a peak at the rear wheel arch. The front quarter are features and impressed section, upon which there are three chrome quadrilateral-shaped ducts which have a horizontal chrome strip running through them at half their height. The main body line is fully straight and is level with the face of the wheel arch bulges. The door handles are mounted to rear of the door, suggesting that they are conventional as opposed to the gull-wing doors featured on the SLS. Apart from the A pillars the car's roof appears to be black, suggesting that it is a roadster. The wing mirrors are half polymer and half body-colored metal, placed just behind the base of the A pillars. The car runs on split six-spoke wheels, wrapped in low profile tires.




Top view of the Surano's engine.

The Surano uses a high power supercharged V12, which gives the car great acceleration and an impressive top speed of 208 mph. However, the car is bulky and can be hard to control. Steering also feels artificial and offers little connection to the road. Despite being one of the best cars in its class as far as straight line performance, many players may prefer the 9F or 9F Cabrio because of its similar performance but better handling due to its all-wheel drive layout.
