The Benefactor Stirling GT is a classic sports car featured in GTA 5 and GTA Online as a part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 update. The car appears to share similar implements from the Grotti Stinger GT‘s front, as well as the Dewbauchee JB 700‘s lights/hood design.
The Stirling GT takes resemblance from the Mercedes-Benz 300SL though its overall body resembles as the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR and Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlehhaut Coupe, sharing the main gull-wing doors feature, as well as the front grill, and classic lightbulbs. The fenders are reminescent of the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante and the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione. The Benefactor Stirling GT is one of two cars in the GTA 5 to feature Gull-wing doors, the second being the Pegassi Osiris. There are dual exhaust pipes exiting directly in front of the driver’s door. The rear has a slightly curved license plate to fit in with the rest of the bodywork. The default design of the rims are El Jefe muscle car rims, which bear an uncanny resemblance to an actual rim design available for the real 300SL.
The Stirling GT can be modified with carbon-fiber hood, a small hook that comes with the bumper delete, a spare tire tied down onto the boot, a roll cage, headlight tape and extra rally lights (2 or 4). The rear wheels have body plates covering the top quarter of the wheel, named body plating. The rear features a ‘bubble’ window, which distinctively sticks out from the rest of the body work.
The Benefactor Stirling GT has excellent acceleration due to its 310hp 3 liter V8 engine. It’s top speed is decent, falling in the middle between the Albany Roosevelt and most of the other high end sports classics. The handling is incredible, acting less as a Sports Classic and more similarly to some sports cars, with large amounts of grip meaning oversteer is only present when attempting to conserve too much speed around a corner. Along with the Casco, Roosevelt, Coquette Classic, and JB 700, the Stirling GT has high resistance to impact deformation. The engine sound is shared with the Lampadati Casco, and the JB 700 (latter for enhanced version only).
When the turbo and transmission are upgraded, the Stirling GT will viciously shake when accelerated while stationary. This is much more prominent than other high-output cars. Its responsive handling, especially for Sports Classics, means it is a very good choice for racing in the Sports Classics class on most tracks, though the Truffade Z-Type is still a better choice on longer races with fewer corners.
