MIAMI (CBSMiami) — It won’t be hard to miss Justin Bieber driving around Los Angeles from now on.

For the pop star’s 18th birthday, Bieber’s manager Scott Braun presented him with the “very hard-to-get” Fisker Karma, an exclusive electric luxury sports sedan, also driven by Leonard DiCaprio and Al Gore.

“You work really really hard,” Braun told the now-legal pop star during an appearance on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” on Thursday. “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 broke his own rule because the exclusive vehicle is not only hard to get, but it’s also estimated at $100,000.

Braun, who presented the Fisker Karma on the show as a joint gift with Bieber’s mentor Usher, said he wanted to give the singer a car “that would make him stand out on the road.”

Cleary happy with his birthday present, Bieber said, “This is amazing.”

Meanwhile, Beiber fans will be happy to know that new music is on the way. A new single, “Boyfriend,” is due March 26. Bieber co-wrote the track with singer-songwriter Mike Posner.

His second book, titled “Justin Bieber: Just Getting Started” will be released worldwide in September.

The book is described as “the second official photographic book” from the multiplatinum-selling superstar.

The new book promises a look inside the world of Bieber: touring the globe, making a movie and recording his new album.

His first book, titled “First Step 2 Forever: My Story,” was published in October 2010. It has sold more than a million copies in 25 languages.
