David Hasselhoff is helping auction off his iconic KITT from Knight Rider – and will even deliver the beloved car to you himself.
The 1980s series starred Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a detective who hits the road and solves crimes with the help of his Artificially Intelligent and near-indestructible talking car, KITT.
First playing the role in 1982, Hasselhoff stayed with the series for four years, before reprising his roles in reboots and films through to 2008.
He even got a version of the car for himself.
But, as part of a huge auction of merchandise made by Hasselhoff and Live Auctioneers, the 68-year-old is now parting ways with his old faithful.
The car is currently based in the UK, with bids currently passing $475,000 (£349,288).
It will remain on sale until January 23, with the winner getting the car delivered to them by Hasselhoff.
The actor has remained an important part of the Knight Rider legacy, even buying out the rights to the show so he has control over the story’s future.
Knight Rider has now been given the green light for a series reboot, following Hasselhoff’s attempts to bring back the show for a film.
Speaking about the project, he told Consequence of Sound: ‘The concept, I don’t really know. I threw my hat in the ring as “nostalgia meets Knight Rider of today” which is not a new Knight Rider, but a continuation of it.
‘They want to do a script that has my approval on it. Whether I’m in it or not, or whether I approve of it, the answer is: I don’t know.’
‘I had the rights for about 10 years to Knight Rider, and I couldn’t get a bit,’ he added. ‘And these guys have it now because of the timing, because of the resurgence of nostalgia, because the guy who’s doing it gets it. It’s not about a talking car.
‘It’s about the relationship between Michael and KITT. And it’s also about the action and one man can make a difference.
‘If they do that, I’ll probably support it. If they don’t do that, they’ve hassled The Hoff.’
