KITT’s sleek exterior body shell is made out of a special molecular shell bond, His a body taken from a famous 80’s sports car, a Pontiac Trans – Am. Quite often KITT gets on Michael’s nerve but who could be impress with a car that doesn’t have an attitude. KITT’s bullet proof, capable of High speed going 200mph on normal mode, then also has a special mode call Super Pursuit Mode, where aerodynamic body parts of KITT will pop up to add more driving capabilities at high speed, allowing KITT and Michael Knight to maneuver while performing a high speed chase, able to do a Ski-Mode, Eject able seats, sliding on only one side of the car and get this, The car is able to turbo boost, it jumps!! The driving of Michael Knight in the series shows was abrasive yet also defensive driving, sliding from one corner to another, even manages to nearly destroy KITT with a head on collision with another bigger car at one point. It was awesome!!
[Knight Rider Remote Control Car was the “IN” thing in the 80’s]
But the most amazing part of the whole Knight Rider Series is the Remote control car that they made. The remote control car even had the front red light of KITT and the front head lights will turn up when needed. So you can imagine how much fun it was playing the remote car, sneaking pass my bedtime, with the lights off in my room, playing the Knight Rider Remote car. Too bad it doesn’t talk.
