Kitt car is set for its TV comeback

Knight Rider is coming back to television screens, along with the star of the 1980s original, David Hasselhoff. But many will be relieved to learn that David “Don’t Hassle the Hoff” won’t be centre-stage in the 2008 small-screen movie version of Knight, and nor will the early-1980s Pontiac Trans Am that starred as the Knight Industries Two Thousand (Kitt) alongside him.

Instead, in the new version, the lead character will be played by Justin Bruening, as Michael Knight’s long-lost son Michael Tracer.

And the car, now known as the Knight Industries Three Thousand (still Kitt), will be based on the latest Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR.
