Man Builds His Own Knight Rider KITT Replica

kitt-replica.jpg

This is a video of the Knight Rider KITT replica that Chris Palmer built out of a 1991 Pontiac Trans Am (the original KITT was an '82). It looks pretty impressive. Now I'm usually a pretty traditional dater, but if Chris picked me up in this thing I'd probably make an exception and kiss on the first date. *sitting in parked car in front of apartment* Well, what do you think KITT, should I do it? *robot voice* "Don't do it, Michael." MICHAEL -- WHO THE F*** IS MICHAEL?! Chris you've got some explaining to do, mister.

Hit the jump for a video tour. Oh, and Chris's KITT doesn't actually talk yet by the way, so we may have actually made it to second base IRL.

Thanks to Godwin, who's always dreamed of driving his car into the back of a moving tractor trailer like in Knight Rider and Spy Hunter. Dream big, bro.

    I would like to knew with the new 'man-less' cars which are on tests by Google, and then we will have a Knight Rider exactly as in the original series.

    Someone made one of them close to where I live, He takes it to Comic cons a lot. He was last at Wales Comic Con, I expect he will be at the next one :)

    So what? There's a ton of replicas like that out there. Enough that companies have actually have made the parts for the conversion a permanent part of their product palette.

    I love this. Amazing. I can't even build things with lego, talented people out there.

    The guy is amazing, but a waste of talent for a fictional car on a tv program that sucked.

    Does it have the license plate flipper ? No more red light tickets

    How the hell is that thing street legal? All that shizz has to be distracting to the driver. Never mind the strobe light on the front which appears to be DESIGNED for the express purpose of disorienting oncoming vehicles.

    You must drive your car into a tree every time you see one of these then...
