The 2016 Detroit Auto Show is in full swing and our photographer has delivered some shots of the updated VLF Destino.

It was three years ago when the Destino was introduced in Detroit and now it has received a minor nip & tuck to give the luxury sedan a more “refined design.” Despite the subtle cosmetic revisions, it is still very easy to notice the model is based on the defunct Fisker Karma.

Unlike the hybrid Karma, the Destino is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine borrowed from the Chevy Corvette ZR-1. The motor delivers a massive 638 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 604 pound-feet of torque from 3,800 rpm. It enables the model rocket to 60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds before topping out at 200 mph (322 kph).

The revised Destino rides on large 22-inch alloy wheels and can be optionally ordered with a carbon fiber roof. It is available with a wide array of body paints and a generous selection of leather upholsteries for those willing to pay at least the $229,000 starting price.

Currently on display at the Detroit Auto Show, the updated Destino is going to be manufactured at a factory in Auburn Hills, Michigan. It remains to be seen whether the model will be a success taking into account it costs about twice as much as the original Fisker Karma.

It should be mentioned Henrik Fisker is now head of design and product strategy at VLF Automotive and he promised to sign each car.
