The North American International Auto Show has recently seen the debut of the VL Automotive Destino Red Concept, which is believed to go into production soon.
VL Automotive has officially pulled the wraps off the Destino Red Concept, during the 2014 NAIAS, in Detroit. The model in question has been based on the Fisker Karma and it’s coming as a two-door convertible with new styling and a folding hard top. The officials at VL Automotive declined to say whether the Destino Red will go into production or not.
“We had hoped to be in retail production [of the Destino sedan] by now, but a five-month interruption was caused by the reorganization and restructuring of Fisker Automotive which is a major supplier of some structural components and some body panels”, said Gilbert Villarreal, the company’s co-founder.
The VL Automotive Destino Red has received an elegant interior design, with red contrast stitching on the Katzkin leather and, even if the company did not say anything on its performance, the Destino Sedan will be offered with two engines, both made by GM, a 6.2 liter V8, with 450 HP (335 kW) and a 6.2 liter supercharged V8, generating 638 HP (476 kW). More details on the model are limited for the moment.
