The Hoff's Personal KITT Is Up for Auction, and It Ain't Cheap

Youre looking at David Hasselhoff s personal KITT, a highly modified Pontiac Firebird Trans Am given the full Knight Rider treatment. While this isnt one of the vehicles used in the show, of which few survived, it appears to be an exacting replica of the hero car of the early 80s drama. And while youd expect something like this, personally owned by the shows lead actor, to attract attention, to go for big bucks, you might not think it'd go for as big of bucks as it's already at. At the time of this writing, with 10 days left on the auction, bidding is up to $475,000. This isnt the first KITT that Hasselhoff has owned or sold, either. Last year, he told erstwhile Top Gear host Chris Evans, on his radio show, that hed sold a similar replica to a man in Turkey (the sale allowed Hasselhoff to donate $150,000 to charity). He claimed to regret selling the car almost immediately, as The Sun reported, and was hoping to buy another KITT replica. Perhaps the one listed here on LiveAuctioneers is that replacement? --> Theres a bonus if bidding stays hot and heavy: Hasselhoff will personally drive the car to its new owner if the price exceeds 25 percent over the reserve price. We arent sure what the reserve is, but wed be shocked if the current bid hasnt already exceeded it. Theres one catch, though. The car is currently located in the United Kingdomthe stars wife is Welsh, and theyve reportedly decamped to Wales . It appears this KITT replica came along, too. No word on whether international buyers will still get to enjoy a personalized Hoff delivery. Will the Hoff regret selling this one, too? Judging by the current bidding, we highly doubt it.
