K.I.T.T. A-P Exclusive

This week THC and I met with K.I.T.T. the Knight Rider car, as he came all the way up from California on his break from filming.

We snapped some excellent photos and asked some tough questions. None of which, you will see here.

Otherwise, you should know, this is THE car you may have seen in the new Knight Rider NBC movie that was shown earlier this year. K.I.T.T. and the cast of the movie will return this fall to NBC in a new spinoff series of the classic.

K.I.T.T. as you may know is a 2008 Shelby GT KR Mustang. There are a limited ammount of cars produced for the movie, and one made for a Ford-sponsored contest to be given away. The car has such a dark window tint outside, it is darned near impossible to see out! The car was driven by actor Justin Schaefers who played "the stoner kid" in the movie.

He showed us the inside of the car, which had masking tape applied to certain interior features of the car so that stunt drivers know what buttons to push and when, etc.

Enjoy the pics!

Note the California plate.
This car is totally driveable...

...Even if it has a dangerously illegal window tint...

The hood even pulses the red light!
Raise your hand if you don't even know what Knight Rider is.

This car is fail. Leave it to these people to make a bad movie, with the WRONG CAR. Last time I looked it was a Pontiac...not a Ford. L2be accurate when making movies.
