Leonardo DiCaprio Sets New Tone For Eco-Friendly Hollywood Actors

Is the Fisker Karma the new Prius?

Though the low-key Toyota Prius hybrid may be en vogue for Hollywood actors like Jodie Foster and Susan Sarandon, Leonardo DiCaprio is proving it's possible to be green and flashy.

As the Daily Mail reports, the heartthrob has purchased the 2012 Fisker Karma, a $100,000 series hybrid supercar. The 2 Liter hybrid engine allows for 0-60 accelerations in under 6 seconds with a top speed of 125 mph. The solar glass roof provides some extra juice to the A123 Systems lithium-ion batteries.

Maybe Alec Baldwin should ditch the pedestrian hybrid Toyota Camry he uses in L.A. and get one of these babies. The diamond dust in the paint may be just flashy enough to pique his interest.
