There's been plenty of speculation over the first selected few to receive the Fisker Karma.
Largely because one of the first couple was speculated to be Hollywood's golden boy, Leonardo DiCaprio.
Known for shouting he's the "King of the world" in Titanic, and for playing an undercover cop in The Departed, DiCaprio is undoubtedly an A-list celebrity. But instead of being spotted piloting high-end exotica and gas guzzling sport-utility vehicles, DiCaprio has been known to drive the Toyota Prius.
Well, it appears that look has changed pretty dramatically as he was spotted hopping into the Fisker Karma.
One of the first Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid sports/luxury cars has been delivered to a high-profile celebrity, Leonardo DiCaprio to be precise. DiCaprio was spotted by TMZ while entering his new sports car. He prides himself on being green, he also prides himself on being cool, so he paid over $ 100,000 for the hybrid.
The Fisker Karma drives its rear wheels using two rear-mounted 201.5 horsepower electric traction motors that draw energy from the lithium-ion battery pack for up to 80km. The gasoline engine drives a 175kW electric generator to power the motors. There is no mechanical link between this engine and the drive motors...
