Justin Bieber who turned 18 a couple of days ago (and created a wave on the web with claims that the Bieb is now legal) was gifted a luxury vehicle by his manager ‘Scooter’.
The car in question is a Fisker Karma – a hybrid vehicle that promises to redefine what we think of electric cars. The car promises to have all the advantages of an EV without compromising on performance, safety or luxury. Scooter presented the Bieb with the vehicle on his eighteenth birthday while he was appearing on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’ The $100,000 EV is the same one that Leonardo Di Caprio purchased for himself last year. The car has a solar roof which means that parking it in the sun while you go to work actually recharges the vehicle. It has a stylish diamond dust decked paint job (you never have to worry about the shine going off on this one). The 2012 Fisker Karma can go from 0-60 miles per hour in under 6 seconds with a top speed of 125 miles per hour.
The best part of the Fisker Karma is its efficiency which is claimed to be a stupendous 100 miles per gallon.
The Canadian singer likes his luxury cars as is evidenced by the $160,000 customised Range Rover that he gifted himself on his previous birthday. The car was customised with a sound system worth $75,000, leather interior, modified paintwork and a Cosworth engine. Justin also owns a Batman-themed customized Cadillac and a Ferrari.
While its obvious that the whole gift concept was a publicity gimick for the Bieb as well as Fisker Karma ; promoting a hybrid is a great idea. We certainly dont fault the Bieb for this one. We are sure his fans agree!
