Danish Crown Prince gets seat time in Fisker Karma

Here is HRH Frederik looking all princely in front of the Karma (source: fisker car forum)
It is good to be a prince!  Denmark’s Crown Prince HRH Frederik drove a prototype Fisker Karma to UN Climate Conference events in Copenhagen.
The Prince is the first outsider to drive the Karma.  Why the Dane favoritism?  Why not Eric Dane?  Fisker Automotive, while based in California, is led by Danish auto designer Henrik Fisker and the Karma will be assembled by Valmet Automotive in Finland.  Eric Dane, on the other hand, grew up in my neck of the woods here in California.
The $87,900 Karma should begin arriving at Fisker dealers in the third quarter of 2010.  It is an aggressive schedule, but Fisker has usually been a man of his word, so until he proves otherwise we will take him at his word.

More photos of the Karma are shown in this linked slideshow.
