A Striped KITT

The new Knight Rider will have stripes on it basically since it’s going to be a Ford Mustang specifically a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR that will portray the role of Knight Industries Three Thousand.

This will surely disappoint purists that are hoping to see a rebuilt Trans Am or another GM-made car such as the new Camaro or a Z06 Corvette. And also earlier pictures of the new KITT circulated on the web shows a Koenigsegg CCX which quite fits the role.

For the show, three versions of the car will be used the everyday KITT Hero, KITT Attack, and the driverless KITT Remote. The nanotechnology allows the KITT to shape shift and change color. The KITT’s super computer can hack into any computer and electrical system.

The voice of KITT will also be change instead of using the voice of William Daniels comic actor Will Arnett will become the new voice of KITT. However some feels that Arnett is somewhat miscast in the role.

Anyway that is no longer our concern (LOL). David Hasselhoff will remain as Michael Knight only older this time. He will be the personal trainer of All My Children star Justin Bruening who will play as an ex-Army Ranger Mike Tracer who will help in tracking down the original KITT creator, Charles. The other characters on the show include Deanna Russo as Sarah Graiman, Bruce Davison as Charles, and Sydney Tamiia Poitier as an FBI agent.

The Knight Rider to be shown at the NBC network on February 17 at 9pm ET will be a two-hour movie that will serve as a sneak peek of the coming new Knight Rider series and if the show is successful new episodes of the Knight Rider may be ready by the next fall season.
