$100,000 DiCaprio car: Environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio buys a luxury plug-in hybrid 2012 Fisker Karma that reinvents the way a 'green' car looks – and drives.
Environmentalism has come a long way, baby.
Actor Leonardo Di Caprio’s sleek new 2012 Fisker Karma hybrid automobile is a far cry from the Toyota Prius. It looks more like a Jaguar than jellybean. That makes sense when you learn that it is the brainchild of Danish auto designer and CEO of Fisker Automotive, Henrik Fisker. He also designed the BMW Z8 roadster.
Some may debate how eco-friendly owning any kind of car really is, given the automobile's contribution to traffic congestion and the Earth's resources used in manufacturing vehicles. Walking, biking, or taking public transportation are much more eco-friendly. But can you really imagine a megastar like Mr. DiCaprio walking to work or riding the subway? He wouldn’t be able to move for all the fans – never mind dodging the Nikon snouts of the paparazzi.
