KITT: No Assembly Required

The Knight Industries Two Thousand is for sale:


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! ;-)

    Hiphopguy23 will put up $75,000. Anyone want to share a 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!

  5. Ken Gagne adds: 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 They sell parts to bulid KITT cars and sell full ones for $40,000-$60,000. A steal compared to almost $150 grand!
