If the third-generation Pontiac Trans Am was known for anything, it would be for its starring role in the classic television show, Knight Rider.
And in said television show, the 1982 Pontiac Trans Am takes the form of KITT: the Knight Industries Two Thousand. It’s an icon, instantly recognizable by nearly anyone, and an incredibly well-executed replica happened to be featured for a Regular Car Review.
In typical RCR fashion, this is not all about the specifications and driving dynamics, but about its cultural impact and how cool it is to actually get behind the steering
wheel controller. And the owner has gone all out. Every screen, gauge and reader are present, and they all have procedures to make it look as if the car is scanning and reading all the time. It’s a painstakingly cool thing to see.
Check out KITT in the video right up above.
