We've reported on K.I.T.T. cars being up for sale in the past, but those were all reproductions of the real thing. Now, one of the four documented 1982 Pontiac Trans Ams actually used in the Knight Rider series during the '80s has a For Sale sign on its windshield. The car has been restored to its "debut-season glory" and is being displayed at Kassabian Motors in Dublin, California. The price? $149,995. Ouch, that's a big chunk of Knight Industry's defense contract budget. But it's a small price to pay for the actual car in which the Hoff and his perfectly coiffed hair shot his close ups. Many of the buttons on the dash light up and the two video screens do work, though don't expect this K.I.T.T. to hit 300 mph or jump a school bus when the Rocket Boost button is depressed. The string of red lights on the nose do light up, however, which would be the deal breaker for us.

      Man, just some 80's music, back then it was hot but now it has cheezy written all over it. Only people who still rock mullets would shell out that much dough for this. Sure it's a piece of history from a hit T.V. show, but I agree with the other posts, I'd rather have the General Lee or Bandit's refurbished ride.

      DPC Cars, could your website have any more useless crap on it? It's crammed with google ads and photography that is owned by the manufacturers and therefore tagged as "Editorial Use Only." Where are your Editorial articles and other story pieces to justify the usage that content?

      I have always been a fan of GM's F-body cars like the GTA and IROC and so i think this thing is dead sexy with that body kit, i have only seen a few episodes of the show though,not my generation so perhaps this is why i hate the way the interior looks,although it is probobly will hold together better than the factory cars that suffered falling off hubcaps, sagging headliners, and broken trim.

      There's a guy here in AZ who has a 1991 made into a great replica. Lots of working LEDs in the dash, LCD monitors, etc.

      $150,000? No way. Nostalgia or not. The car has not been that well maintained for collector purpose. There is damage to the dash under the video displays the interior just looks dirty. The fact that the dealer would not have it detailed up kills the credibilty of the car and the dealer. It very well have been one of the cars used, but for that price tag I don't care to find out.

      That is too cool! I loved this show growing up. I see there is an inscription on the driver side glass t-top. I wonder who it was to and who signed it? Someone is going to have one awesome piece of history with this thing. I just hope they do not hit the eject button and it actually works lol.

      Sad what we in the 80's thought would look futuristic. Ooooh, LED's all over the in interior. Oh, wait...

      OK, granted the new ones are cool blue and used for ambient lighting but I just think its funny. The dash of that thing looks like the enterprise bridge.

      Man, that show was teh bomb! I've always been a fan of that body style (with Bandit's generation right behind, Frunk!), and they've done a good job of restoring it. The stock interior was a joke, so at least KITT's looked cooler. And Frunk is right... they came with the 2.5l Iron Duke 4cyl as the base motor. Things really improved in (I believe '84 or '85) when they dropped the worthless throttle-body injector EFI system and replaced it with the Tuned Port Injection EFI system from the '84 Vette. I was in high school in the mid/late 80s, and I got to take my aunt's '86 to school on the last day of my sophomore year. T-tops off, Van Halen on the Delco (at the time, the best fuggin' stereo out there), and burnouts in the parking lot. Ahh, the good old days!
