We are pleased to welcome K.I.I.T. to the show! The character of K.I.T.T. (Knight Industries Two Thousand) in the original Knight Rider series was physically embodied as a modified 1982 Pontiac Trans Am with numerous special features such as Turbo Boost (which allowed quick bursts of speed or jumping over obstacles), the ability to drive ‘himself’, a front mounted scanner bar that (among other things) allowed K.I.T.T. to ‘see’ (and a nod to series creator, Glen A. Larson and his “Battlestar Galactica”‘s Cylons), and ‘molecular bonded shell’ body armor, portrayed to be invulnerable to diamond headed drills, small arms fire, the impact of thrown objects, and even high speed impact with cinder block wall. The armor could also resist close explosive blasts although a direct hit could cause severe damage. The car’s voice was supplied by actor William Daniels.
We want to thank Kenneth for bringing this replica of the K.I.T.T. Hero Car!
