Description

The originalKnight Riderseries saw Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff), a crime fighter who uses a high tech, artificially intelligent automobile, the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT)Based on a 1983 5.7-litre Pontiac Trans Am with a four-speed auto boxPurchased from CH Auto Corporation Miami Florida andimported into the UK in February 2016Appears to be a very accurate recreation. Absolutely fabulous interiorNot UK road registered, taxed or MOT'dalthough road registration may be possibleStarts, runs and drives but sold as seen and offered as a piece of movie memorabiliaKnight Riderisan American television seriescreated and produced by Glen A Larson whichwas originally broadcast on NBCfrom 1982 to 1986. The show starredDavid Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a high-tech modern crime fighter assisted by KITT, an advanced artificially intelligent, self-awareand nearly indestructible car.The carused as KITTin the series was a customized 1982 Pontiac Firebird sports modelthat cost about US$100,000 (each) to build (equivalent to about $275,000in 2019). The nose, dash and other interior aspectsof the carwere designed by the well-known design consultant Michael Scheffe. We understand that a total of 19 cars were used over the four seasons and 90 episodes, however, 14 of these were destroyed during or after production leaving 5 which we understand were stripped of their interiors. All 5 have been rebuilt and have found owners in the States with apparently one of the most used cars recently being offered for 5 million dollars.Should owning a replica of KITT be on your bucket list we found several dozen for sale in the US for anywhere between $35 and $100,000, but there is no longer any need to cross the pond as we have one right here. This example is based on a1983 5.7-litre Pontiac Trans Am with a four-speed auto box and was purchased from CH Auto Corporation Miami Florida andimported into the UK in February 2016. We understand that it starts, runs and drives but is not UK road registered, taxed or MOT'dalthough road registration may be possible if it could be modified sufficiently to get an MOT.Sold as seen and offered as a fabulous piece of Movie Memorabilia.
