Justin Bieber turned 18 Thursday (down, cougars) and got quite the birthday gift during an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show": a Fisker Karma.

For those of you not plugged into sports-car culture, a Fisker Karma is a plug-in hybrid luxury sports sedan manufactured in Finland. The cars are extremely rare and cost anywhere from $102,000 to $116,000.

Bieber's manager Scooter Braun presented Biebs with the gift, telling the pop star: "You work really, really hard. I always yell at you: 'Don't get anything flashy. You know, we're not about that. Be humble, be humble' - and I kind of broke my own rule."

Braun added: "We wanted to make sure - since you love cars - that when you're on the road you're always environmentally friendly and we decided to get you a car that would make you stand out. I think you know where I'm going, and you're kind of freaking out right now."

Freaking out he was, exclaiming: "That's for me?! That's crazy!"

Fun Fisker fact: Leonardo DiCaprio got the very first Fisker Karma ever made, and Al Gore and Colin Powell were among the first people on the waiting list for one.
