With news of the Ford Shelby GT500KR being plucked from obscurity to play the role of KITT in the TV revival of Knight Rider, it makes you wonder what cars might have been passed up to play the part. Surely this one got called back for a couple rereads. It's a Mercedes-Benz CL-Class wearing the new tuning package from Wald. Sporting an all-black exterior, the Wald CL gets a number of aerodynamic add-ons including new front and rear aprons, new side skirts, a new rear spoiler, vents aplenty (check out the ones atop the front fenders and behind the front wheels) and jet black rims. We're not sure, however, if the voice of Will Arnett would sound right emanating from the dash of the Wald CL. Perhaps James Earl Jones? Yeah, you feel me.

      This would have made a cooler KITT than the Mustang, but then KITT should be an American car. Too bad GM was so slow with bringing the Camaro out - I actually hope to see KARR as a Camaro.

        lol, KARR. Now there's a Knight Rider jeopardy question for you.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Reject? Give it a red LED strip in the front and this does the essence of KITT much better justice than the mustang.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Funny that even though KITT should be an American car, this car would be more socially exceptable if it were the new KITT.

      I was thinking possible Batmobile reject. Just add some fins.
      • 7 Years Ago

      • 7 Years Ago
      Atrocious.

      I have an old John Deer I could paint black. Perhaps if I put a red neon light bar under the three point hitch.........

      Looks like they tried to cross a CL with an RX-8. It makes the AMG body kit look tasteful.
      • 7 Years Ago
      quite like this. definately an improvement over the stock cl. never a fan of black wheels though.
      • 7 Years Ago
      @ Wormguy- i agree it does look like they blended the CL w/an RX-8.
      And although KITT would only feel right as an american car, i would still tune in EVERY WEEK if this mean thing were to picked as the new KITT. This is stylishley aggressive, that GT500KR is hideously aggressive. Kitt should be a car that you lust after and dream of having in your garage, that GT500 just wont do.
