KITT: No Assembly Required

The Knight Industries Two Thousand is for sale:

KITT

The 1982 Pontiac Trans Am that starred alongside David Hasselhoff in the television series Knight Rider can be mine — er, yours — for the low, low price of $149,995.00!

The 1982 DMC-12 DeLorean used in Back to the Future and Michael Keaton's Batmobile are two of the most famous cars of that decade — but both pale next to the original car of tomorrow. KITT started it all, inspiring such other series as Airwolf and Viper. To own such a historical vehicle, be it for driving or (more likely) collecting and preservation, is a geek's dream come true.

But with KITT driving off the studio lot… how will the proposed, upcoming Knight Rider: The Movie ever hit the road?

    Which car is it? I was reading recently that (like most specialised movie/TV vehicles) there was more than one KITT.

    And apparently they've disconnected the AI components! :-(
    It's just an "ordinary" car! ;-)

    Here's one Eighties car I forgot: the General Lee was up for sale. Check out the Dukes of Hazzards' car on eBay Motors (though I suspect the closing bid to be fradulent).

    My oldest brother recently sent me a link to pictures of a KITT car he saw last month. They're out there!

    ComingSoon.net has the first picture of KITT from the upcoming Knight Rider movie — a 550 HP Ford Shelby GT500KR Mustang.

    Wonder if that car got sold. I've seen them out there too. Looks like they get them from this place http://www.roblouisell.com. They sell parts to bulid KITT cars and sell full ones for $40,000-$60,000. A steal compared to almost $150 grand!
