Knight Rider KITT Car Gets a Futuristic Makeover with Racing Spoilers

The Knight Rider KITT, along with the Chevy/GMC G20 used by the A-Team, are the hero cars of my childhood. While the actors I loved to see on TV have not aged very well, I'd still like to see the Pontiac Trans Am making a comeback. Wouldn't you?

Replicas of KITT are a dime a dozen. You can have one done cheaply, and that trademark light bar at the front can even be fitted to a Chevy Camaro.

That's why today we are bringing you something completely different, a KITT like you've never seen it before. The core character is the same, preserved by the black paint, but nobody has seen racing spoilers on the 1980s icon.

You have an enormous wing under the front bumper with adjustment struts, vents to cool the brakes and a trunk spoiler. NASCAR-style wheels are a stand-out feature, as are the fender flares that make room for them.

If you're too young to remember KITT and grew up watching South Park, we need to set your priorities straight. The Knight Industries Two Thousand was the bee's knees and helped boost Pontiac sales between 1982 and 1986, while the show aired. The car talked, did what you wanted, drove by itself and had an assault mode comparable to the Batmobile.

Between 2008 and 2009, a sequel show was aired. It featured the wrong car (a Ford Mustang) and lacked the David Hasselhoff touch.

So with that being said, we'll let you check out Yasid Design's impressive rendering. The picture is as crazy as they get, and we want to see more retro rides getting this treatment as soon as possible. Who knows, maybe the Bullitt Mustang can be turned into a spaceship.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
