Knight Rider was a smash hit of the 1980’s and starred the now washed up, soulful singer David Hasselhoff, who fought crime with help from a talking car.

Hasselhoff played Michael Knight, and his car KITT was a faithful sidekick in the form of a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am Firebird.

KITT was one badass ride, and was tricked out enough to make James Bond’s cars jealous. Some of its choice features included a turbo boost which would allow it to accelerate rapidly and even fly through the air in short bursts, a flamethrower, and a tear gas launcher!

Amazingly, this series is being revived in both film and tv in 2008! The new KITT is a burley looking Mustang that will be voiced by Val Kilmer. The vehicle will sport the same distinctive hood light that is KITT’s trademark, but other than that is completely different.
