Los Angeles - Justin Bieber has been given an electric car for his 18th birthday.

The Baby hitmaker - who reached the milestone age on March 1 - was presented with a luxury Fisker Karma vehicle with a solar-panelled roof by his manager Scooter while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Presenting the teen star with the car, Scooter said: "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.

"So we wanted to make sure you were environmentally friendly and we wanted to make sure since you love cars that when you're on the road you are 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."

However, this isn't the first luxury motor Justin - who is dating Selena Gomez - has owned.

Last year, he treated himself to a £100 000 customised Range Rover, which had a sound system worth £5 ,000, leather interior, modified paintwork and a Cosworth engine.

A source said: "Justin loves his motors even though he's barely old enough to drive.

"His girlfriend Selena Gomez will be well impressed with his latest. It's the business."

Additionally, Justin owns a Batman-themed customised Cadillac and a Ferrari.
