The Benefactor Serrano is a luxury crossover SUV in The Ballad of Gay Tony and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

Design

The hood design, grille, greenhouse, and sides of the Serrano are similar to a Mercedes-Benz M Class W164; Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class influences are seen on the crease on the sides, the rear, and the front bumper somewhat; the headlights are much like a 2004-2006 Volkswagen Touareg but with added turning signals. The engine badge on the side reads V12, just like the one on the Schafter. Interior is similar to Habanero's, but steering wheel bears Benefactor logo instead of Albany's or Emperor's.

The "Serrano" name is presumably based on that of the Porsche Cayenne as both cars take their names from chili peppers, similar to the Habanero. The Serrano's name could also be a reference to the name of the Nissan Terrano, although there are barely any similarities between the two.

There are two variants of this SUV:

  • Standard version which has the same, but slightly altered rims with the Emperor Habanero.
  • AMG Version which has tinted windows, larger front and rear bumpers, a custom chrome grill with a large Benefactor emblem in the middle, resembling a Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG grill, and custom alloy wheels similar to Banshee's but now in wider range of colours.

A Serrano is shown in the first trailer for GTA V, appearing mostly unchanged from The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Performance

With a Supercharged V12 engine, the Serrano excels considerably well in power, possessing above average acceleration and a good top speed of 170 km/h (106 mph). With a four-wheel drive and a more than sufficient amount of torque, the Serrano is also capable of hillclimbing, although its low-riding body design, like that of the Habanero, makes it less compatible for off-roading. In terms of steering and braking, the Serrano's performance is average due to its excess weight, and will occasionally burn out in tight corners due to its torque. Although the Serrano and the Huntley Sport compete for the fastest SUV, the Serrano is considered to be better because it has a better acceleration (0-100km/h in 5.5 seconds) while the Huntley Sport's acceleration (0-100km/h in 6.6 seconds).

The modified Serrano is only different in appearance, having the exact same handling as the normal Serrano.
