Just KITT, nothing more. Pontiac is best choice.

Yikes...windows are small. I noticed that lately. A lot of the new cars have small windows, I don't like that myself.

I like your suggestion, and i "Knight-ridered" one of the pics just to see how it'd look.

Naa... I don't know, this don't look too great. Too much a jellybean.

Then again, I've noticed lately that seeing a car in pictures is NOTHING like seeing it in real life.

If one saw a Mitsubishi Eclipse in real life they MIGHT think it too would make a nice KITT, but seeing one in pictures would be like NO WAY. My neighbor has an Eclipse. Sweet looking car. In fact, we nicknamed it KITT because he's got one of those remote-starter things and it turned on when nobody was around but me and a couple other neighbors. The car kinda became "alive" with nobody there. :) It was kinda cool.

Though the SLR is pretty cool and really fast, they're also really rare and extremely expensive. It would stick out WAY too much in public. Remember one of KITT's features was to just blend in with the crowd so to say. Plus I just can't see him in an import vehicle.

KITT has to be his normal self as a 82 Trans Am. KITT had more balance too look at the mercedes kitt its like the front is massive and the back is tiny besides cheaper car real jumps (maybe) less cgi

you lot are probably right, since they wouldn't have the budget for some SLR's to smash up, they're better off using some old rust-buckets.

I am a member of this site called GMInsideNews and they had pics of a rendering of what the new Firbird might look like. Here is a pic of KITT in the new body!

I loved the SLR ever since I saw it. Might even buy it one day, though definitely not at its current £310,000 price tag!

Don't think it'd be a car I'd choose KITT for but definitely as a baddie car!

I'll take one of the new firebirds and make a KARR. ;) The first one looked really cool! Love the front nose!

Yes I could definitely see the first new firebird concept as KARR. It's very mean looking. :twisted:
