So, first up, I should probably say, Benny can't do this on any old car. I only work on select makes and models, but the work speaks for itself. I'm always looking to expand but, this is where we're at for now.

Events of GTA Online


When originally introduced, he is claimed (by Lamar Davis) to work specifically on lowriders. He appears to be the only worker there who works on the cars, fitting, upgrading and respraying. Since the original Lowriders update, further updates have seen his stock and expertise diversified into high-end supercars, motorcycles, retro-modding modern vehicles back to previous generations, and lifted Donks and 4x4s.

Los Santos Tuners

Benny reappears in the GTA Online: Los Santos Tuners update in the LS Car Meet introductory cutscene when he drives past Mimi, Hao and the player in his customized black Hermes with the custom plate B3NNY. He can later be found sometimes attending the meets with his car.

The Contract

During the mission Short Trip - Fire It Up, Lamar mentions that it was Benny who worked on Lamar's now green Emperor.
