NBC is unveiling the new Attack Mode for KITT today at the very large Comic Con convention in San Diego. ShadowyFlight.com is covering the reveal of the car live in its forums, but this image has already made its way on the web and confirms that KITT has had his wings sheared. Gone are the various spoilers that cluttered the first version and what remains is a cleaner car with dual side exhausts, a deep chin spoiler that looks pretty heavy duty, an equally strong looking mesh grille, what appears to be rocket launchers where a shaker scoop would go, a still-very-big rear wing, rear air diffuser and new spokeless wheels that were stolen right off of a Bonneville Salt Flats racer. The rear tires are extremely oversized and still manage to poke out from the newly flared fenders. Is it better than the first Attack Mode version of KITT? Yes. That doesn't mean we necessarily like it, though. The Knight Rider fan community seems split as well. Make up your mind in the comments after visiting ShadowyFlight.com for over 20 more additional high-res pics of the new Attack Mode KITT.

UPDATE:
New live shots on KRO reveal Attack Mode KITT has lambo doors.
UPDATE 2: ShadowyFlight.com returned with a big gallery of live images.

      "Attack Mode"?

      Seriously?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I just noticed the lambo doors, what is wrong with these people.

      Fail

      I guess that's the reason the original KITT couldn't shape-shift.

      As a kid, I was devastated when KITT was destroyed in that chemical waste dump but nowadays... I can't believe it but I think with such a disgrace for the eyes playing KITT, I'd actually be cheering.

      Camp can be entertaining (like the Adam West Batman). Of course when your show is camp by accident, that's just sad.

      Today isn't April 1. -confusion- This is a sick and cruel joke to play on KR fans, Autoblog.

      What's that? It's the one they really intend to use? Well, we now know that the show is guaranteed to suck. This will make it so that no future company will want to pay for future (decent) remakes of the show.

      Shoulda been GM with the Pontiac G8 (yes a sedan). Of course, the VE family (basis of the G8) should have been sold as Chevrolets (Impala or Lumina, Impala or Lumina Sport Wagon, Caprice, and El Camino) but GM didn't listen to me.

      Wow, First too generic with the Rice Boy Racer look now it's too flamboyant with the dragster/deathrace look, Kick it down several Notches NBC, that's just too over the top and also how the hell can it be attacking with that front end basically touching the surface? I can imagine it now KITT going 100mph in regular mode and it switches to attack mode only to end up going 10mph watching for dips and speed bumps, LOL.

      "Cleaner car" ? Yeah, no. Vacuum cleaner, maybe - at best.

      I was going to say something about the scissor doors and other magically transmogrified bits, but then I remembered that now it can also transform into a truck. I give up.

      There will NEVER be another Knight Industries Two Thousand. Our memories of a talking Pontiac Firebird running the streets are over. I highly object to what they've done. I cannot believe they put a FORD in the show as its main character. GRRRR

      Based on the funky magic-8 ball on the dashboard, I guess KITT's responses will be limited to sayings like "chances aren't good" and "don't bet on it".

      Big Giant Steaming Pile of FAIL...



      Is anyone really going to be watching this Knightmare?
        • 6 Years Ago
        I'll be watching it for all of you.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I loved Knight Rider, both the TA and the Mustang. Don't even mind them using the Mustang (although wouldn't a Veyron be much better???). But this just doesn't look cool. I will watch the show for a while, but... Dunno, the car is embarassing.
