The rumor that K.I.T.T. will be played by a Mustang in the upcoming Knight Rider TV series appears to be true. That is, assuming someone with a lot of time on his hands didn't mock up a Hoff-ified Mustang just for the hell of it. That's extremely doubtful, as the car you see above is actually wearing the body kit of a Shelby GT500KR, which isn't easy to come by for weekend projects. Nope, if we take the pic at face value, then the only conclusion possible is that K.I.T.T. will be played by a 550-horsepower Shelby GT500KR in black with silver racing stripes.

K.I.T.T.'s trademark running red light bar has been relocated up and into two nostrils that sit atop the GT500KR's hood. It's a natural fit, though we have to question the silver stripes that, while a trademark of the GT500KR, are totally harshing on K.I.T.T.'s blacked-out super stealth persona.

General Motors is probably a bit bummed that one of its cars wasn't tapped to play the part. But unless show creators agreed to a four-door K.I.T.T. and used the Pontiac G8, the car was definitely not going to be a Pontiac (we hear the Hoff can't fit in a Solstice). And GM is no stranger to stealing acting roles away from other automakers. Volkswagen is probably still pissed off that a Camaro played Bumblebee in Transformers.

I saw this on another site. That crap looks photoshopped to me.

Both of those pictures have "Jalopnik" watermarked on them too, so they appear to be from the same source...but yeah, it does look a little PS'd...::ghey3:

so the only thing that makes that GT500KR "Hoff-ified" is a red light in the hood opening??? Yes, that had to have been someone with "a lot of time on their hands". :rolleyes: I think that looks PS'd too, fwiw.

Those lights would have been a natural fit into the 05/06 GTO hood also, but then Ford would not have the 11ty billionth version of the Mustang. I think that this needs to go into the Versions of the New Mustang Thread. :ghey:
