The Benson is a sports car appearing only in Grand Theft Auto 2.
In Grand Theft Auto 2, the Benson is a sports car. It is suggestively based on the Mercedes-Benz 300SL, evidenced by the Benson's similar body design, as well as its gull-wing doors and its name being similar to the Mercedes-Benz car brand. The only difference is the 300SL does not feature split frontal and rear windscreens, as the Benson has.

Sprite only, without lights
The Benson in GTA 2 is noted for its substantial top speed, but at the same time it suffers from delayed acceleration due to slow gear-shifting as the car speeds up. And while the car features good braking, the Benson suffers from occasional tailspins when cornering at high speeds.
- The Benson spawns only in the Residential District of Anywhere City in traffic as well as the following parked locations:
- A parking lot west of the Redemption entrance to the elevated platform over the Mobile RV Park.
- A parking lot west of a diner at the southernmost street of the Residential District in Morton.
- Two at parking lots near the southwest corner and east side of the shopping mall in Largo.
