Panto is a very scramble compact, engineered and produced by a made-up (fictional) by Rockstar in-game German automobile-manufacturing company Benefactor, which is, by the way, a parody of the rather real German company Mercedes-Benz.
For the first time the Benefactor Panto compact was noticed by players in the Grand Theft Auto games series a long time ago - in two-dimension Grand Theft Auto 2. Of course, it had a completely different look, but the spirit of it was pretty much the same. Then, Panto was planned to appear in Grand Theft Auto III, where it would be very similar to Fiat 128, however it made it's appearance only in the beta-version of the game and was never seen in the series again. However, the automible was returned by Rockstar in the free "I am not a Hipster" update, where it looked much more like Panto from GTA 2 than Panto from beta of GTA 3. Benefactor Panto - is a very small, scramble car. That's the smallest car present in the game, which even lets it to pass through some doorways (when there are double doors, usually).
Except for it's size, Benefactor Panto also has the smallest weight in the game of 800 kilograms. The car is put into a motion by a one-litre inline 4-cylinder engine and it achieves the top speed among compacts in GTA 5. Also, Panto has the best acceleration amon it's class and the best brakes. However, Benefactor Panto suffers from it's size: thanks to it's short wheelbase, it has some horrifying issues when driving at high speeds, it behaves itself very unpredictable and tends to get lost in an uncontrollable spinning. You can buy Benefactor Panto on the www.southernsanandreassuperautos.com website for $85000.
The prototype of Benefactor Panto is Smart Fortwo (2nd generation).
