Ten Exclusive Views of the Hot Wheels Elite Knight Rider KITT 1:18!



The good folks at Hot Wheels have been busy, with their recent 1:64 release, and their booth at San Diego Comic Con and now this! Our friends at the Hot Wheels Elite group, whom have been giving us a sneak peak of their model process for a few months now, sent us these high quality prototype shots.

For the first time we get a sneak peak at the fully rendered model, complete with Season 1 dash. He's a thing of beauty, and limited to only 10,000 pieces - so be sure to get your pre-orders in! It's on track to release later this year.

    It seem that finally they keep that horrible wheels in the final model. They made small wheels for the prototype but good proporcionate between rims and wheels. When they looked the error, to make a correct total diameter of the wheel, they did not made new wheels, they only put a big tire in the same small rim, with that awful result. Someone must loose his job for this.

    I hope they will include lights and sounds, as well as kitt talking, I hope that maybe they get kitt to drive on his own with a remote control.

  • KRFAN

    i hope they add running lights working and headlights to add with K.I.T.T's front bar & dashboard would be a thrill to see. marker lights would be awesome as well....dont care to hear sound just want it lit up like within the ole episodes... :P over all the dashboard lit up would put everyones face with a huge smile... :D

  • Ronan1592000

    This is a very good question but I hope this is not the final version because the pictures of the prototype there well back seat

    Cool looking replica of KITT.

    How a said: the nose isnĀ“t good. It needs be more slim. The tires are too big. And not realistic hubcaps. Hotwheels, if you want, I do the car for you like mine. Thank You! http://knightrideronline.co...

    It is true that your answer is good but for me hot wheels has one of the closest replicas of the series and I remind you that there have been several versions of KITT in the show as the van of the a-I congratulate team hot wheels brand joy ride has not done better next to the replica hot wheels will bring to market.

  • Ronan1592000

    VERSION 1.18 JOY RIDE THE BRAND IS REALLY MADE A ROTTEN BUT IF HOTWEELS VERSION 1/18 ON THE MARKET ALL JOY RIDE VERSION 1/18 BE RESOLD BECAUSE IT FEELS LONG AS we expected THERE IS NOT MORE THAN CONFORM THIS VERSION mADE A HOTWEELS HOPING THAT THE OTHER VERSIONS WILL BE mADE AS KITT CAB VERSION UNTIL THE VERSION S.P.M

    Its supposedly the turbine engine that has been mentioned a few times throughout the series although we never really got to see under the hood. Nicely re-imagined by Hot Wheels. The only time we did get a glimpse of under KITT's hood was from an episode in season 2 titled Ring of Fire. But in that scene, the engine looked nothing like the one on the Hot Wheels model here. It was more of a stocked Trans Am engine which the ERTL 1/18 KITT had.

  • OutRider

    What kind of engine is that supposed to be?

  • Thebirk001

    WOW! I am really looking forward to adding this to my knight rider collection. What I want next is a Super Pursuit mode KITT. And to finish out the series, how about a 1/18 scale Goliath and or FLAG semi to park your KITT in.

  • imranbecks

    Looks really good! But the wheels with the hubcaps like that look really odd. This is only a prototype after all, so hopefully the final version will have better looking wheels..
