Awesome pic from Hollywood Joe taken in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, only a half block west of the Hollywood Wax Museum.
Leonardo DiCaprio pulled up in this baby for the premiere of “J. Edgar,” rumored to be a potential Oscar-winning performance.
What made our celebrity sighting even cooler was seeing the famed “Karma” that Leo drove (notice it has its own bodyguard!). He was the first person on earth to get this “green” hybrid plug-in sports car from Anaheim, California-based Fisker Automotive. The $100,000 investment means, if he drives about 50 miles per day, he won’t have to fill up the tank for about a year. The car also has a solar-powered roof that recharges the battery and runs the heat and AC. In “Stealth” mode (electric power only), this hip set of wheels can go a max speed of 95 mph and go from zero to 60 in 8 seconds. Woo hoo!
Fisker will produce only 1,500 Karmas this year. Our guess: Leo probably likes this car more that the Toyota Prius he bought in 2006.
