If like me you are a fan of certain 70’s and 80’s tv shows, you’ll definitely be interested in this article about the new version of K.I.T.T. that’s going to star in the made for tv movie.
One upgrade is the initials for the new one shows the upgrade: Knight Industries Three Thousand. This new version of Kitt is built around the new 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR. I’ll admit that I’m one of those that will always love the look of the old 1982 Pontiac Trans Am but at the same time, this tricked out ’08 ‘stang has got it going on big time.
The article includes a really impressive and thorough list of features in a side by side comparison of the old Kitt vs the new version.
The only question I have is that I wonder if this is going to lead in to a new series…. I hope so.
[edit:.. it turns out there IS going to be a new series. I found this announcement of the Knight Rider relaunch with more details. apparently the movie will air in the fall of 2008.
