Origin of KI3T's Turbo Boost??

Post by Nicholas Knight » Thu Jan 06, 2011 4:09 pm

When I first saw KI3T's Turbo Boost in the first episode of the 08 series it looked so familiar for some odd reason. I finally found out why. :lol:

Is it just me or is a "scanner sound" heard twice in that commercial???? :wink:

It's just you. There is a similar sound, but it's not a scanner sound.

That scene may have also looked familiar because it was very similar to the acceleration scene in The Fast and The Furious movie.

In 0:25 it sounds like KITT's scanner :D

I loved that version of the Trans Am. It just looked so... mean. Would have loved seeing KITT reincarnated in that generation.
