KITT rides again, without The Hoff

RC version is faithful to the original.

It seems America's Got Talent has given new life to old KITT, or Knight Industries Two Thousand, once the sidekick of The Hoff.

Firebox has a remote-controlled version complete with familiar whooshing sound and working red sensor on the hood. If you hit a button on the transmitter, it will even intone: "I am KITT, whom you may regard as the voice of the Knight 2000."

In case you're too young to remember the original (sigh), KITT was an advanced crime-fighting vehicle with artificial intelligence that had a sleek, customized Pontiac Trans-Am body in a molecular bonded shell. It was impervious to attack, could cruise at 300 mph, and was armed to the teeth with a high-tech arsenal. And not only did it talk, but it had a campy sense of humor to match David Hasselhoff's tight 1982 jeans.
