KITT sells for $53,000

It's the stuff of every 80s kids' dream - having the chance to own the authentic, head-turning KITT car from the TV series 'Knight Rider'. If you were on a search for a new car on eBay motors this week, however, you could have been in with a chance of snapping up one of the original cars from the third and fourth series of the show. With a reserve of $26,000.00 the 1984 Pontiac Trans Am black KITT car with an 8 cylinder, 5.0L engine and a mere 21102 miles on the clock had a total number of 27 bids. It eventually went for $53,000.00 yesterday from an unknown bidder going by the name of 'joerizzetto'.

The eBay Motors vehicle description explained:

"This is one of the original vehicles from the series introduced initially in the third season and then re-converted to simulate the "Super Pursuit Mode" variant of KITT that debuted in the 4th season and was later used in the Knight Rider made for television movie (1984) and for exhibition and promotional purposes."

Let's just hope that joerizzetto releases that the car doesn't come complete with William Daniels - the voice of KITT, unless of course he goes the whole hog and bids on a Knight Rider Car toy and keeps it in the glove compartment in the hope that it sets itself off every time he goes over a speed bump.
