At the 6th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event which will take place on March 29 in West Palm Beach, Florida, Ford will put up for auction two of the actual KITT Ford Shelby Mustangs used in NBC’s “Knight Rider” pilot. The cars sold will be the “Super KITT” and the “Attack Mode KITT”, both based on black Mustangs GT with 4.6 Liter V8, each one having a lot of upgrades.
Steve Davis, president of the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company said: “”The Barrett-Jackson Automotive lifestyle event in Palm Beach always attracts many celebrities, and this year someone will take home two genuine TV stars […] This is a once in a lifetime chance to own a pair of celebrity cars with extraordinary star power, while also supporting a worthy charity. Imagine going to the office or dropping your kid off at school in KITT. Ford and Barrett-Jackson are offering a chance to live the ‘Knight Rider’ experience every day.”
The bad news is that only one person will enjoy these fine cars, because the KITTs will be sold in pair and not separately. All the benfits will go to the Salute to Education program, which raised more than $7 million for high school students’ scholarships for college.
