This is not just another famous car, but one of the most important pop culture icons of the previous century, so to hear that it actually is rubbish to drive will crush many people’s dreams.
Knight Rider’s KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand) is the car of the future if you were a kid growing up in the 1980s. It talked to its driver, it was autonomous on demand, it had a top speed of gazillion miles and also had that magic turbo boost button on its insane dashboard.
Few automobiles managed to become so synonymous to what a future car might look like, and perhaps this is why so many people went on and built their own replica of the “real” deal.
But as with every major reality check, the truth is that KITT is a pain in the butt when it comes to driving. That steering wheel alone is a constant hazard for the driver’s family jewels when a corner approaches and there isn’t even a rear-view mirror because of that roof console.
