It sold KITT, the Knight Rider
The 80s are back again with one of its most emblematic icons. Sure almost anyone who ronde or exceed twenty or thirty years is unknown to him the Knight Rider series, in Spanish Knight Rider, in which the main protagonist (plus David Hasselhoff, who played Michael Knight) was the vehicle: KITT, or what is the same, Knight Industries Two Thousand, the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am of black color that one could say that almost had her own life.
Many aftershocks have been done since the fantastic car, with more or less success, some actually achieved. However, this unit 1982 It is totally original, he participated in the filming of the series and now sells for 29,995 dollars in JamesList, about 24,450 euros. Expensive or cheap? If we consider that is no more than a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am series with a few modifications might not be anything cheap but if we consider his charisma and safe history that a pathological liar will not lose the occasion.
KITT was created by the specialist George Barris, whom we might consider as one of the true fathers of customizing vehicles, and this unit comes from the Dezer Collection Museum & Pavillion Miami (USA), having been shown in numerous exhibitions and events. No lack classical Front flashing red light or futuristic interior (for the time) with lots of buttons and colors, the little screen or steering wheel so peculiar.
Undoubtedly, the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am It will be one of the most memorable models, especially here in Spain, of the now defunct American brand. The original series was never a prodigy of television quality, but it has its place in history and probably also in the memories of those who were children at the time.
And this is something that can never assume the recent remake of the series that had little to do with the original, and where KITT was a Shelby GT500KR. Awe, true, but with little to do next KITT original, which could be one of the shining stars of all time in terms of vehicles on the small screen.
We leave you with a video of the introduction of the television series, for reminiscing. past that, trying not to invade us nostalgia, they were not always better (or other).
