Julien’s Auctions Hollywood Legends sale will offer the special T-top Trans Am that spoke to "The Hoff" before he was running on a beach with Pamela Anderson. The jet-black Trans Am — nicknamed KITT for the acronym "Knight Industries Two-Thousand" — has a keyless ignition system and studio-created instruments, controls, monitors and steering wheel that outfit the dashboard. KITT’s signature red light scanning sensor on the hood is operated from inside the vehicle. The car was registered to Universal City Studios in May 1984 and is accompanied by a group of studio call sheets and maps indicating the vehicle was used and which cast members were present.

The intelligent KITT drove itself at times, and with its high-tech features, it always assisted its star character, Michael Knight. The car is in working order and carries a pre-sale estimate of $200,000-$300,000. It is one of many unique Hollywood vehicles to be offered during the Julien’s Auctions Hollywood Legends auction.
