Alright we’re well aware that Knight Rider came back in 2008, this time without David Hasselhoff and a whole new K.I.T.T. The original K.I.T.T. 2000, which was a 1982 Pontiac Firebird was way cooler than K.I.T.T. 3000, the 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR staring at you now.

The Mustang will be auctioned off at a Hollywood memorabilia auction courtesy of Profiles In History. Valued between $25,000 and $35,000 the celebrity show car surely looks the part of a Shelby GT500KR Mustang… right? Wrong. Under the hood you won’t be getting a V8, never mind a supercharged version. K.I.T.T. 3000 sports a good ‘ol 4.0L V6 with a five speed automatic transmission. How boring.

But hey, you’ll get the awesome red sweeping light up front and the proceeds go to a children’s charity. Hopefully someone scoops it up and builds it into a monster Mustang with some real muscle under the hood, the way it should be. The auction takes place on November 6th, 2010 at The Globe Theater in Universal Studios.
