KNIGHT RIDER KITT with Voicebox 1-18 Scale Hot Wheels Elite Mattel

This is the new Hot Wheels Elite K.I.T.T. 1:18 scale die-cast replica based on the iconic 1982 Pontiac Trans Am as featured in the 1980’s Knight Rider series.

K.I.T.T. is an iconic car that captivated the hearts of many with its sleek stylish design and witty humor. Before the sunny beaches of Baywatch, David “The Hoff” Hasselhoff patrolled the streets as Michael Knight with his trusted vehicle, KITT. KITT was no ordinary Pontiac Trans Am.

This black beauty was heavily modified with numerous features that included an extremely durable shell and frame, and control by a computer with artificial intelligence. The car used as K.I.T.T. in the series was a customized 1982 Pontiac Trans Am sports model that cost US $100,000 to build.

Will include phrases (authentic quotes from K.I.T.T. from the TV series), car sounds, and the LED eye will light up. The interior dash will light up as well.

You can now own a perfectly scaled model of it for quite a few zero’s less. $340.99 to be exact.

You can pre-order this now, although unfortunately you’ll have to wait a full year before you get it as it won’t be available until February 2014.

Now that the original Batmobile is for sale, I thought it might be interesting to look into what prop replicas are floating around based on the icon 1966 Batmobile that most of us will actually be able to afford.
