"You never forget the first time you sit behind the wheel of a mint condition Declasse Tornado: that effortless class, that shameless bulge in your pants or wetspot on the seat, that dawning certainty that you're still going to be crawling up this gentle suburban hill fifteen hours from now. Still, with our help, onlookers will be so floored by your paint job they won't even take a Snapmatic selfie in front of the impressive smoke clouds coming out your hood."
Benny's Original Motor Works description.

The Declasse Tornado Custom is a two-door lowrider featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Lowriders: Custom Classics update, released on April 4th, 2016, during the Tornado Custom Week event.

"You never forget the first time you sit behind the wheel of a mint condition Declasse Tornado."
―Rockstar Newswire description.
The Tornado Custom features only minor changes by default. In the side profiling, changes have been made to the suspension system, where the ride-height is lowered, and the wheels have been cambered negatively for stability and traction purposes, as well as further expanding suspension capabilities. Unlike most other lowriders, the tyres are not white-wall by default. The wheels are smaller than the stock Tornado's. It is a soft-top variant of the Tornado, featuring a convertible roof with different soft-top designs.

The Tornado has received some improvements such as its handling and speed but otherwise remains a less-than-worthy competitor, though it has a somewhat reduced turning circle. Braking power is problematic as it requires the use of the handbrake to make quick stops, even with upgrades purchased.

  • When the roof is retracted and the vehicle is either stationary or accelerating slowly, the player will rest their left arm on the driver's side door, this also happens on the Buccaneer Custom and the Chino Custom. This does not occur when in first-person view.
  • The livery "Neo Geometric" for this vehicle is a reference to the character Neo from The Matrix movies. It also looks similar in design to Digital Rain, which is commonly seen in the franchise.
  • After upgrading to the Tornado Custom and leaving Benny's garage, the car will emit a unique backfire noise. This noise disappears when you store it in your personal garage or leave/switch sessions.
