Justin Bieber tricks out his new Fisker Karma in chrome [Video]

Justin Bieber received a 2012 Fisker Karma for his 18th birthday and within a month did what any red-blooded American kid would do. He wrapped the car in chrome.

Justin Bieber just received a Fisker Karma for his birthday last month and is another in a long list of celebrities to get one. Bieber turned 18 years old on March 1st, and was presented an all-new 2012 Fisker Karma on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Bieber loves cars like any 18-year-old, and said on the show, “That’s for me?! That’s crazy!”

The Christian Science Monitor reported that Bieber was given the car by his manager Scooter Braun on the show who wanted to get Bieber an environmentally friendly car that doesn’t stand out. Braun told the young singer, “Don't get anything flashy!' You know, we're not about that. Be humble, be humble. And I kind of broke my own rule."

It looks like Bieber is a typical teenager and decided he didn’t like the plain $108,000 Fisker Karma and decided to wrap it in chrome and drive it around on black wheels just to tick his manager off. According to celebrity-stalking site TMZ, Beiber was spotted taking Selena Gomez through the drive-through at Chick-fil-A in the reflective Karma.

It seems that the reflective chrome job isn’t a violation of the law, just a major attention draw that his manager was trying to avoid. But the car has drawn the attention of the LA PD with its row of Fuchsia lights hidden under the front grill, and the blacked out windows are a little too dark for the police to ignore.

Interesting story. But the writer doesn't have his facts. FISKER had no fires and A123 their battery was the cause of the POTENTIAL problems. It was fixed in 5 DAYS and again, it was the suppliers issues. All Fiskers issues were the battery and software tied to the battery. They finally figured out it was A123 and A123 admitted it and is paying for everything. It is an awesome vehicle.
Yet another reason to hate Justin Bieber.
Why would you hate him? Or love him? Isn't he just another insignificant human being? Not worth my effort or attention to hate him... And as for the car, it is cool but there are nicer car wrap jobs than that one... But hey if that s his taste, why not.
