$100,000 DiCaprio Car is a 2012 Fisker Karma

$100,000 DiCaprio car is a 2012 Fisker Karma - a hybrid sports car which features including a keyless entry and a solar panel sunproof that help power the battery. The car can go from 0 to 60 m.p.h in 5.9 seconds, reach speeds of 125 and gets 100 miles per gallon.

"A couple of years ago it started, by people who were maybe a little ahead of their time. You saw some movie stars like Leonardo DiCaprio buying a Prius," car designer Henrik Fisker told Reuters in 2009, describing how he married the idea of a good-looking, fast car with the notion of going green.

"He could have bought any car in the world," Fisker said at the time, "and I remember seeing that on television and thinking to myself, you know, when you've got a guy who could buy any Ferrari or Rolls-Royce and he's buying a Prius, you know something is changing dramatically."

When the car debuted at the 2009 L.A. Auto Show, the Irvine-manufactured Karma had an estimated base price in the $87,000 range. The 2012 Karma, however, clocks in at $96,895 for the base model and closer to $110,000 for the fancy-pants version.
