Challenge of the Super Cars

Post by CAKnight » Thu Jul 22, 2004 9:39 pm

I've never seen a TV Special in which the famous and well-known super cars compete against each other. For example, KITT could be pitted against the likes of the Batmobile, the A-Team's Van, James Bond's Aston Martin, in a series of events. They could include an obstacle course and the traditional races, but in a variety of terrain - snow, off-road, desert, etc. Would you guys like to see such a TV Special?

I agree! KITT would certainly thrash the competition, since it has turbo-boosting abilities and Super-Pursuit Mode. These two functions are invaluable in overcoming obstacles and beating the clock. The closest rival would be the Batmobile, as it's powered by a jet engine, and could give KITT some tough times in the races.

Yea but coulden't kitt use his micro Jammer to make the batmobile engine malfunction? Lock up the steering wheel? Or he could Drip oil or shoot smoke out the back so the batmobile crashes when they come into the corner?

I guess KITT could try to mess with the Batmobile. Nevertheless, it is a worthy adversary that shouldn't be underestimated. The Batmobile has its own array of gadgets to deal with KITT's microjam/ smoke screen/ oil slick. Watching these two titans fight to the end would prove to be very exhilarating!

I dont think Kitt would win. Because when you bring up snow and off roading Kitt wouldn't be the best. Unless, he has Bonnie to install those tires that have some pop out spikes to improve traction. Or you can add those chains around the tires for grip. I saw some people who have them on their cars in the winter.

KITT would face stiff competition from Automan's Autocar, until the latter's battery runs out!

If one of the rules of the competition states that the cars involved can't fly, there's no way the DeLorean could ever overtake KITT. Perhaps the only DeLorean that could participate are the versions from the first and third Back To The Future movies. When it is allowed to fly, nobody will want to watch the contest as you can pretty much predict who's going to be the winner. It's not fair to the rest of the other cars that are non-flyable. But, the major problem with all the DeLoreans is that once they hit 88 mph, they will vanish into thin air! :lol:

The batmobile would lose no matter what. it may operate off of jet fuel, but Kitt can go 300 mph. So there is not contest there.
