Wanna channel your inner David Hasselhoff without doing battle with a cheeseburger on a Las Vegas hotel floor? Got a few hundred grand burning a hole in your pocket? Have we got a deal for you.
Well, Julien’s Auctions does, anyway.
The auction house is putting the KITT car from the 1980s Hasselhoff series “Knight Rider” up for sale, as part of an auction that will take place June 26 and 27.
The T-Top TransAm, which boasts a keyless ignition system, along with studio-created instruments, controls and monitors, is estimated to fetch between $200,000 and $300,000.
And if that seems a bit steep, keep in mind that the unit will include call sheets and maps indicating when the vehicle was used on the NBC show and which cast members were present.
The auction also includes a number of other iconic show business vehicles, including the Hell’s Chariot convertible from the 1978 film “Grease.” The 1949 Mercury Series 9CM custom convertible, which was featured in a race against John Travolta‘s Danny Zuko in the dried-out bed of the Los Angeles River, is expected to draw somewhere between $400,000 and $600,000, and that includes “Grease” star Olivia Newton-John‘s signature on the dashboard.
If you want to take a walk on the redneck side, there’s the “Dukes of Hazzard” Dodge Charger built by series star John Schneider, a 1969 model has “01” painted on the side doors and “Bo’s General Lee” painted above the windows on each side. Schneider’s former set of wheels is also estimated at $200,000 to $300,000.
For that kind of money, we’re going to assume it comes with a horn that plays “Dixie.”
