Many Knight Rider fans are upset at the fact that they switched out the Pontiac Trans Am for a Shelby GT500KR in the new series. We arenâ€™t saying that we donâ€™t like it â€“ but we have to admit that it isnâ€™t the same look. We have some news that you might be interested in.
Up for auction is one 1984 Pontiac Trans Am, black and tan, with a distinctive red light bar in the nose. A genuine KITT.
Not only was this one of the featured cars in seasons three and four, but it is one of the rare 300-mph “Super Pursuit Mode” T/As with additional aero devices designed to, well, make the car look like it could go faster. Actually, the eBay description tells us the Super Pursuit Mode KITT was designed “to give KITT a 40% increase in speed through the assistance of retractable airfoils and jet boosters.” Considering that this Trans Am still features a 5.0L V8 and automatic transmission, we would guess that half of that top speed is actually a stretch for this old Pontiac.
Still, with a starting price of just $26,000, the winning bidder can own a true piece of small-screen history. Kustomized by legendary Kar stylist George Barris, this particular car was also used in the 2006 flick, The Benchwarmers.
