Jackie StewartThe Automotive Hall of Fame has announced this year's inductees, and both Bob Lutz (above) and Jackie Stewart (right inset) are among the lucky handful of honorees. A total of ten individuals from automotive past and present are being inducted for 2013. Those include Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin, the duo who founded Aston Martin some 100 years ago, as well as David E. Cole, the founder of the Center for Automotive Research. Cole also served as the director of the Office for the Study of Automotive Transportation.

Bob Lutz likely needs no introduction. He's served as an executive with multiple automakers, but is most well-known for his time at both Chrysler and as General Motors vice chairman. Jackie Stewart, meanwhile, remains one of the world's top racing drivers. Having competed in Formula One, Can Am and nearly every other venue that pits two cars against each other or the clock, Stewart is a legend of motorsport.

The Automotive Hall of Fame is also giving the Distinguished Service Citation Award to four individuals, including Bo Anderson. Anderson is the president and CEO of Russia's GAZ Group and is largely responsible for helping turn the company around. Neil De Koker, founding president of the Original Equipment Suppliers Association will also receive the award as will James McElya. McElya helped steer Cooper-Standard through a difficult restructuring.

      Warning: Stand Clear of Vent. Sir Jackie Stewart is an absolute legend, a guy who has an amazing career under his belt and even today at 74 can hop in a car and wring more out of it than most people. If you want to put Bob Lutz in the HOF be my guest, but can a REAL legend get top billing, please?

        When and how much trolling does it take to get run off this site.. This guy is almost as bad as the bot posts - and far more one-dimensional to boot.

          He's harmless. No one buys into his garbage but we sure like laughing at him.

      Insane. During his tenure nearly every car at these manufacturers was a total POS. Lutz drove GM into the ground setting them up for bankruptcy and he's indicted into a hall of fame? This award has no value.

        You do understand what a development cycle is, right? And how long it takes to develop products at a vehicle manufacturer?
