There will be quite a few treasures up for grabs at the upcoming Christie’s auction. Amongst these prized possessions, such as Mike Tyson’s boxing gloves and a Tommy Lee-signed snare drum, is an iconic vehicle that any one of us would love to showcase, the 1982 Pontiac Trans Am known to many as, KITT.
Most of you probably recognize the familiar KITT from the 1980’s TV series Knight Rider, starring famous actor David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight. The auction for KITT is associated with the Gumball 3000 Rally, which is going on right now.
The ’82 Firebird Trans Am, a long with a large portion of vehicles from back in the day, did not flaunt any impressive power numbers from the factory. In fact, the highest rated trim, the Trans Am, featured a 5.0L V8 that delivered 165 horsepower.
One could say that a large part of the Trans Am’s success stems from its popularity after being featured in this series, and now collectors will have a chance to own one of the most famous examples of them all.
