Pop singer Justin Bieber  turns 18 today and to celebrate his birthday, he’ll be presented with the car of his dreams on the Ellen DeGeneres Show . So why are we so excited about this? Well because Bieber’s fantasy car isn’t a Ferrari or top of the line Mercedes-Benz – it’s the recently released Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid luxury sports sedan!
The car will be presented to Bieber by his manager, Scooter Braun who told him,”You work really really hard. I always yell at you, ‘Don’t get anything flashy!’ You know, we’re not about that. Be humble, be humble. And I kind of broke my own rule.”
Braun also stated, “We wanted to make sure, since you love cars, that when you’re on the road you are always environmentally friendly . And we decided to get you a car that would make you stand out.”
The Fisker Karma is the first model from Fisker Automotive . It’s a sexy four-door sedan with an electric motor and a 2.0L turbocharged range-extending engine. The 403-horsepower Karma can travel up to 50 miles on electricity alone and reaches 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds, but it does come with a pretty hefty $90,000 price tag.
