Ingrid E. Newkirk’s need for speed has just become street legal. That’s right, for all of us environmentally conscious, animal-friendly speedsters, Fisker Automotive’s top-of-the-line 2010 Karma sports car is what we’ve been waiting for. The Karma is the world’s first luxury plug-in hybrid, and the available Eco-Chic option—which includes an interior made of bamboo-based fabric instead of leather as well as wood sourced from fallen trees, trees burned in forest fires, or trees brought up from lake bottoms—was obviously created with PETA supporters in mind.
And with the ability to go from zero to 60 in 6 seconds flat, whoever’s lucky enough to ride in the passenger seat is going to have to make sure to wear a seat belt (and probably brace against the dash).
