Initial reviews for the sexy new plugin hybrid Fisker Karma are starting to hit as the first production vehicles silently hit the road. Already, pics of Leonardo DiCaprio driving around in his new silver model have hit various sites. As we mentioned earlier, the actor was the first to receive the new car (which he paid the estimated $100K street price for) as a token of thanks for his partial inspiration of the luxury sports car.
“A couple of years ago it started, by people who were maybe a little ahead of their time,” Henrik Fisker, the car’s inventor, told Reuters in 2009. “You saw some movie starts like Leonardo DiCaprio buying a Prius… He could have bought any car in the world, and I remember seeing that on television and thinking to myself, you know, when you’ve got a guy who could buy any Ferrari or Rolls Royce and he’s buying a Prius, you know something is changing dramatically.”
According to a review by Autocar, the Fisker is more of a touring car than something you would want to drive every day. Nevertheless, they walked away “very impressed” saying that the car isn’t perfect but is a “staggering achievement”. Check out their video review below.
