Benefactor Serrano Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

MitchMaljers

As we know we have a appreciation thread for the Dubsta, Dubsta 2, Dubsta 6x6 /Schwartzer, Schafter (V12, LWB), Surano. Stirling GT, Panto, Glendale and the Feltzer, but we don't have one yet for the Serrano.

 

The Serrano?
The Benefactor Serrano is a crossover luxury SUV which was first featured in Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony. It was used by Luis, Armando and Henrique in the mission Corner Kids where they stole one to get away from the cops.

 

How this Benefactor drive and handle?

 

 

Whilst it has a 6.5 Supercharged V12 this SUV focuses more on comfort and getting from point A to B instead of racing or police chases and such.
The acceleration is average, it's top speed is pretty high, and as mentioned the handling is pretty nice and comfortable at normal speeds..

However, if pushed to the limit this SUV has a tendency to turn over in sharp turns at speed.. Also the brakes are pretty sh*t..

 

If modified, this SUV has great potential in races; it has the same traction as the Dubsta and it is actually faster when fully modified (mainly because it is lighter) also upgrading the brakes really makes a difference (instead of some other vehicles where upgrading the brakes has no impact whatsoever)

What does my Serrano look like?

 

Well I kept the outside mostly stock and went for the luxury feeling.

So if you are impressed by this vehicle, hate it, or have one yourself?

Let me know by posting your opinion of your own Serrano here.

I mean I used to own one way back in the day, but man time has really left that thing in the dust. Dubsta, Baller versions, and even Huntley all get more love for this thing.

 

I'll try to doll one up for the thread later.

We already have an appreciation topic for this vehicle.
But I can tell you put some effort into the OP, I think I'll make this the new official topic.

This was mine in the early PS3 days, before I knew what a Giantsgiants was. I actually won some races with it. I always liked the look of it (minus my colors) and the way it handled. A lot of people don't even know this vehicle exists...

 

"Isn't the Surano a sports car?"

Sigh..."No, there's also an SUV with a slightly different name"

It'd be an ML 63, judging by the huge intake under the grille. Or at the very least an ML 550, which was the biggest V8 offered in a non-AMG. The ML never had a V12; not sure if it would even fit.

 

Anyways, I keep toying with the idea of getting a Serrano, since my family has a first-gen ML 500. Now that we have 5 garages I might dedicate one to just Benefactors.

Honestly thought it was Giantsgiants until I saw your username. I was surprised.

 

OT: Damn, I had one of these for a few weeks - was my favorite mission vehicle. Perfect 4-door car that offers more cover than the Tailgater but then the Huntley S came out and those headlights that has those LED rings just sold me on it. You definitely don't see any Serrano's anymore.

I got one. I even SP2MP it in order to have it fully modded.

 

If I'm not wrong it's in dark blue metallic paint. Great underrated SUV alongside Rocoto.

"Fun fact: what's the fastest growing market in the American auto industry? That's right! Compact SUVs! And do you know why? That's right! Neither do we! And is that a good enough reason to buy one? That's right! It had better be!"


―Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

 

 

pretty much sums up the American auto industry

I feel like these are spawning more frequently now that you can buy them; kinda defeat the purpose, eh? 

 

Not usually a fan of the all-black look, but this pulls it off:
