Autoblog Take K.I.T.T. for a Knight Ride have posted an article about the new K.I.T.T., and also got to test-drive the car itself (a non-kitted-out version, although it did have the Mio GPS unit with William Daniels’ voice installed).

“On the road, K.I.T.T. garnered plenty of stares. Big surprise, right? When the sun went down and we turned on the car’s nose-mounted light show, there was more rubber-necking than a carbeque on I-75. We’d have kept it on all day long, but the red LEDs are virtually invisible until dark. And yes, we were dorky enough to purchase the Knight Rider theme song on iTunes, which was fun to jam at stoplights.

“Regardless of whether or not the upcoming rehash of Knight Rider goes boom or bust, the car will always be an icon. And regardless of whether K.I.T.T. is a 1982 Pontiac Firebird or a 2008 Shelby GT500 KR, if it’s black, talks, fights crime and has a red light bar, it’s still K.I.T.T.” In the Autoblog Garage – K.I.T.T.
