It’s official: The Shelby GT500KR is the next KITT |

After a few weeks ago we told you what the next K.I.T.T. from the upcoming TV movie “Knight Rider” will be, now we have official confirmation from NBC, it’s going to be a Shelby GT500KR. And we also have a bunch of official, high-resolution photos. Honestly, I was hoping that the info we got back then would be just a rumor, but it’s true. As I said, I don’t think this is the best replacement for the Pontiac Firebird, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if this will turn out to be a good decision.
