Meet The World’s Most Accurate KITT Replica, It Cost $50,000

If you grew up in the 80s or even the early 90s, and cars were sort of “your thing”, you probably knew all about the show Knight Rider and the now iconic KITT, a modified 1982 Pontiac Trans Am.

In the show, KITT was pretty much everything modern-day cars are aspiring to be. Fully autonomous, intelligent, communicative and then some. Who can forget features such as its molecular bonded shell, Turbo Boost, voice synthesizer, Pursuit mode, Silent mode, Surveillance mode, or the ultra-popular seat ejection system.

With that in mind, meet Chris Blasius, somebody who definitely did not forget KITT, going out of his way to build what has to be the world’s most accurate replica of the actual TV show car.

“I told my parents at the age of 6, that I will own KITT someday. I actually begged them to buy me a new 82 trans am, and save it for me, until I could drive, because they were still new then. They said I would grow out of it… but I never did,” stated Blasius.

He then went on to spend over 2,000 hours and $50,000 working on the car, making sure that the end product would be something worthy of Michael Knight himself. In fact, he went a step further and made this replica easy and secure to drive, unlike other KITT cars that have been known to feature sub-par steering.

We suggest you watch the entire video in order to see all that went into making this car truly special. In the end, the owner says that he wouldn’t consider selling it for less than $100,000. The funny thing is, to some people, this car might actually be worth a lot more.
