Everyone is tripping over themselves to create the first autonomous car, but they forget that Wilton Knight already designed it in 1982 in the form of KITT. And here’s your chance to drive an awesome replica.
Lego Michael Knight, a lone crusader in a dangerous world. The world of the Lego Knight Rider. A twilight world that feels like it only exists so more exciting Lego characters can play with K.I.T.T.
With today’s news that car-a-holic director Justin Lin is spearheading a “digital reboot” of classic 1980s NBC action show Knight Rider, we got to thinking: exactly how many versions of Knight Rider have hit the airwaves so far? The answer is “way more than you realized.”
Fire up the synth music. Blow dry your hair and throw on a leather jacket. It’s time to take a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist, and then be... deeply disappointed.
David Hasselhoff really, really likes KITT from Knight Rider. As well he should – not only did he co-star in the TV show with the car, but the Pontiac was totally awesome as it smashed walls and jumped things and went bleep and bloop. But if you never understood why it was so great, check this out.
Normally, I'd scoff at the thought of a racing driver blaming his car, but in Funny Or Die's remake of "Knight Rider," KITT is more than a little whiny and Dale Earnhardt Jr. is no threat to hassling The Hoff.
I’ve been working on a personal photo series capturing movie and television cars (real and replica)for about 5 years now under the title “The Unicorn Project”. Most recently, I had an opportunity to photograph a replica A-Team Van and KITT from Knight Rider while I was in Los Angeles. These happen to be two of my…
I'm eagerly awaiting for Lego to release the official Back to the Future sets—note to Billund: you should make the RC model too—but I want more. I want all my childhood remade using Danish bricks (never mind that most of my childhood was actually made of Lego bricks). I really want all the sets above to be official:…
Thanks to my adventurous parents, the first time I saw Knight Rider, I was a kindergartener in Mexico. The year was 1991, I was almost five, and while back then I didn't realize how funny a Spanish-speaking car really is, I was fascinated by that black Trans Am.
Craigslist has done it again. Now be honest. You know you've harbored a secret (or not-so-secret) Knight Rider fantasy since you first saw that awesome talking Trans-Am back in the '80s. Now, your fantasy can come to fruition, because someone's selling a KITT replica.
If you're a child of the early '80s, there are two cars that sprung from the cathode TV sets and permanently lodged in your little brain. One was the General Lee, and the other was K.I.T.T. — which can now be yours for the right price.
Automobile associate editor and former Jalopnik intern Eric Tingwall changes the voice on the very-limited-edition 2010 Mini Cooper Camden's gimmicky "Mission Control" feature, turning it into KITT from Knight Rider. Don't touch that non-existent turbo boost, Tingwall!
It's been 28 years since KITT had a successful show. In that time his position in popular culture has slipped from hero to laughing stock, making increasingly minor appearances to fuel his hamburger habit. Evidently, he misses Michael too.
The Four Dorkmen of the Carpocalypse are at it again, this time taking their "girlfriends" for a ride in a Rocky Mountain sunset, posing with satellite dishes and adding a Decepticon to the collection.
And before that, an army of freshmen and synchronized wristwatches. This particular example is from the Wrocław University of Technology and shows a KITT light show and rudimentary race cars.
My stash of DOTSBE photos includes many from Denver, and so I'm able to post two Mile High Mavericks today!
This may be the first time we've seen the old n' trusted Trans Am-based KITT and the new n' busted Mustang GT500KR-based KITT together at the same time. Seems like it's PSA time.
