As mentioned in our forums last week Profiles in History is set to host a live auction on eBay where one of the items up for grabs is a KITT used in the filming of Knight Rider:

437. K.I.T.T. (Knight Industry Two Thousand) car from Knight Rider. (Universal TV, 1982-85) This highly-modified 1983 Pontiac Trans Am is an original screen-used hero car used during the second season of the hit TV series. Instantly recognizable with its working scanner in the front and highly futuristic interior, this vehicle was arguably the star of the show! Accompanied with the original ownership certificate listing MCA Universal Studios Inc. as the registered owner. For insurance and liability reasons the vehicle's identification number was removed by Universal (common practice for their film and TV cars) and it was subsequently assigned the in-house inventory control number of "1177" (numbers can be found on the driver-side door and under the hood).

More information on the KITT can be found at the auction page. Also a page detailing the restoration of this car can be found at Mark's Custom Kits restoration page which is a very interesting read in itself.

The estimate is ranging from $40,000 to $60,000

This eBay auction was recently picked up by BoingBoing and engadget.
