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.


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.

When crushed, the vehicle awards the player ElectroFingers.


  • 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.
