2012 Fisker Karma

If Christina Hendricks from Mad Men were an automobile, she would be the Fisker Karma. The curvaceous and buxom Karma is described as “sustainable design without compromise” due to its ability to allow you to plug it in or fill it up (You know it’s green because Leonardo DiCaprio bought one). This car’s sexiness would gain the attention of Hugh Hefner to do a cover shot. But the Karma isn’t just for looks. Four hundred and three finely tuned thoroughbreds are tucked neatly under the bonnet all while delivering 300-mile extended range with their EVerâ„¢ system.

The Karma doesn’t just stop “on a dime” it stops before the dime with Brembo Monobloc calipers and precision tested, directionally ventilated rotors. The smoothness of the ride is assisted by the 22″ Goodyear F1 Supercar tires that hug every avenue and boulevard that you wish to venture. Fisker built a quite frankly surprisingly agile car with the responsiveness of a cheetah that has been binge drinking red bull despite having two extra doors. And they achieved it by innovative engineering, utilizing lightweight energy efficient materials and keeping the cars center of gravity low. Unfortunately for us this kept the retail price high at about $102,000 (USD). But it would be one nice ride to drive into poverty with.
