F?inally, a luxury sports sedan that won’t send you on a guilt trip: the Fisker Karma. This plug-in hybrid from Anaheim-based Fisker Automotive is about as environmentally-friendly as they come, even sporting a solar-paneled roof to help recharge its lithium-ion batteries. The company says the car is capable of traveling 100 miles per gallon, has a range of 300 miles and can reach a maximum speed of 125 mph. The base model (starting at about $96,000) features an eco-friendly interior, including mahogany and oak salvaged from forest fires and lake bottoms. Kick the tires at Marvin K. Brown Auto Center in Mission Valley.
Pink Bentley Coup is the latest vehicle employed for breast cancer awareness
Something pinks here. Bentley San Diego, the sales arm of La Jolla-based Symbolic Motor Car Company, has commissioned the world’s only factory-built “Passion Pink” 2012 Bentley Continental GT Coup, designed to raise awareness of Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure (which raises money for breast cancer research, advocacy and health services). A portion of proceeds from the car’s sale go to the foundation. sandiego.bentleymotors.com
