Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid sports sedan

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio will receive the first Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid sports sedan pictured above according to a new report from the company.  The car was created by former Aston Martin designer Henrik Fisker and uses  a 260 bhp 2.0-litre turbo four engine that doubles as a generator when there is no electric power.

At present five cars a week are being built at the Valmet production plant in Finland, with production set to rise to 300 cars a week from November. Consequently Fisker estimates the $100,000 car (set to cost around £95,000 in the UK after taxes) is sold out until early 2012.
