DETROIT -- Named after Bob Lutz, formerly of General Motors (GM), Auburn Hills' Villarreal Lutz is the latest automotive company making its mark at the 2013 North American International Auto Show inside COBO before launching production sometime this June.

The Destino, which is Spanish for "destiny", may be similar to the Fisker Karma, but it is more in common with a Corvette in terms of an overall power train with a 650-horsepower.

And speaking of the Corvette, the 2014 Stingray is the next, great generation because everything about it has been redone in terms of being 100 pounds lighter with a purpose in design: going from zero to sixty in four seconds with 450 of both horsepower and pounds of torque, along with a V8 engine containing direct injection.

And on a lighter note, Detroit's word of being the Motor City is still Bond -- James Bond, with the Aston Martin, the vehicle from Goldfinger that help define Ian Fleming's suave superspy who likes his martinis shaken, not stirred thanks to Sean Connery, who preceded as 007 with Dr. No, and is now succeeded by Daniel Craig.

Skyfall, the 23rd installment, had the biggest opening in the history of the 50-year film franchise back in November with over $88 million dollars. It became the third film of 2012 to grossed a billion dollars worldwide alongside the year's top two blockbusters: Marvel's The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises.
