Seems to be a common trend, thought I'd show some love for this manufacturer. My favorite all around. These cars are a lot of fun and exude "class" I did a search and didn't come across one done under this name, so apologies if there is one.

 

That being said, let's see some rides and what you've done for them. I'll kick things off with my "small" family of Benefactors:

The Serrano. Always wanted a small SUV for urban crawling. Looks great, handles well, has respectable acceleration and comes with a fair number of available mods. A Mercedes GLK clone.

The Feltzer. It'll always have a home in my garage. One of my most idealized cars from the sports class. Acceleration and handling are all wonderful and this is such a confidence inspiring beast for drifting. Drawn inspiration from the Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series.

The Schwartzer. My latest addition to my garage. Not something I will always use but it's really visually appealing to me. Acceleration and handling are definitely there, it's just quite heavy. Much like its' C63 AMG counterpart it's based off of.

 

With that, let's see what you guys are rocking. One addition I'd love but simply just don't have the room for is the Surrano (SLS coupe). For those of you that have, please do leave feedback on it.

It's pretty rare and very under the radar.

nice looking collection. just wanted to add that to me, the benefactor line translates like this:

 

Serrano = ML63 AMG

 

2012-mercedes-ml63-amg-fd.jpg

 

Feltzer = C63 AMG Coupe (Feltzer looks too small to be an SL63)

 

2011_Mercedes-Benz_C63_AMG_coup%C3%A9_Bl

 

Schwartzer = E-class Coupe

Nice group. I'm starting to like the Dubsta actually, at least for all of the potential mods available. It's quite nice off-road too actually. Too bad the Dubsta 2 can't exactly be obtained in Online - under normal circumstances that is.

 

Any Surrano drivers?

I think the feltzer is closer to the SL65.

It's a decent car but for me I just don't feel it. There's some modest visual upgrades as well which is nice. But for me the ride just isn't there and it just doesn't stand out in any area, rather vanilla.

 

As a whole though, Benefactor is my favorite line up of vehicles, at least as a whole. Was into Ubermacht at first (BMW) but outside of the Sentinel XS, they don't offer much to me. 

 

It would be great to see the product portfolios expand down the line (I.E. more Ubermachts, more Obey, create a Lexus/Toyota spin off etc) to fill things out more just as Benefactor offers a range of choices.

I'll agree with OP that the Feltzer is an SL65 black, not a C class.

 

I love Benefactor and was going to start a 'Benefactor appreciation thread' so thanks for starting one..

 

Love my Serrano and especially considering how rare it is

Love the color of both of those, I like that SUV quite a lot actually. Kinda interesting they all say V12, when in reality I wouldn't expect any of these to have more than a V8, V10 in some rare cases.

 

I finally caved and bought something, saved enough ..

 

Will add it soon.

Sold my beloved Sentinel XS for this vehicle, I just had to. I'll admit, the XS is probably one of the top best non-premium vehicles you can acquire in this game IMO.

 

The Surano. The SLS AMG inspired roadster. One thing that sold me is how great it looks as a soft top convertible. I'm honestly not very much into cabrios at all. I'll admit I wish it were a hard top or even a hard top convertible (similar to the Carboinizzare).

 

I can honestly say there needs to be another class of vehicles that slots right in-between Sports and Super, because that's exactly what this is. It's a Super Sports car. Power is unquestionable. Breaks are excellent (for what they are in this game). Handling is superb. IMO there may only be a couple others that turn on a dime like this in this class, it's that good. I normally have to adjust with one of the brakes or take a turn with a reduction of speed in mind (what I'm used to, like). Not here. I can definitely go into turns at higher speeds without use of any braking/foot off the gas.

 

That being said, there's some drawbacks sure. While it's not prone to under/oversteer I do want to say stability control leaves a little something to be desired. It's not difficult at all to have this thing's rear end spin around. Fortunately it's also not terribly difficult to correct that if the situation arises but it does require attention. (I'd give the nod to the Coquette - my daily as being the easiest to correct/drive).

 

In typical Mercedes fashion, this had to be black metallic with a black pearlescent to get that real deep tone.

Finally did some serious testing with the Surano at LSC International. 

 

+ Serious top speed

+ Serious acceleration

+ Great braking

+ Able to take corners at higher speeds

+ Able to force oversteer to swing rear around/drift without using handbrake

 

- Not exactly confidence inspiring/some planning ahead required

- Somewhat large (width)

- Best suited for city driving

- Easy to get the car sideways (for good and for worse)

- Somewhat difficult to correct orientation in a spinout

- Sensitive to road conditions/impact from other things

 

All in all, this vehicle is a blast to drive and will reward you if driven correctly. If not it won't hesitate to punish you.

 

Out of everything in the sports class (this was the last vehicle that remained to be owned/tested with my hands), it would rank in my top 3. Right behind the Feltzer as second and Coquette as first.

I really like the Schwartzer, IMO one of the better looking cars in the game.. However it handles terrible, so I replaced mine a while ago with the Sentinel XS.

Funny, I did the exact opposite. I agree the XS > Schwartzer in terms of driving dynamics, but I had to for collection purposes. Considering I'd drive neither, it just made a certain sense I suppose.

Yeah you're right, the Feltzer is a replica SL65 AMG Black and the Schwartzer is a replica C63 AMG Black.

Here it is :) Its a verry good car. My actualy number one for cruising. It have the same enginge like the high wanted taligator.

 

And i did set my personal record for "driving without any accident" - 19 miles with full speed ( the highway arround the city). I will keep it for a looong time.

Its a mixture of both the Jaguar and the Mercedes.

But since Benefactor is parodying Mercedes, and Ocelot is parodying Jaguar/Maserati, benefit of the doubt has to go towards Mercedes.

I see quite a few Mercedes influences here. Just as there are some Maserati Gran Turismo hints there as well.

 

I'll admit it is indeed primarily influenced by the Jaguar F-Type, followed by Mercedes and then Maserati for their predominant characteristics.

 

In terms of Mercedes, the bonnet style hood vents, large front end plus the trunk lid which has an insert for an air brake as mentioned.

 

Could also argue there's hints of mid 2000's Dodge Viper in there as well.

 

But really, for the sake of "Benefactor" and what they tend to imitate, I'd give the nod to Mercedes.

 

That color from a previous post looks to be a Surf or Nautical Blue with some kind of brown/bronze/sand pearlescent over it.
