You could call it a K.I.T.T. kit.
In partnership with Universal Brand Development, Fanhome’s latest offering is an epic, 110-stage build that follows the success of the company’s U.S. launch last summer. Subscribers will receive four stages each month for a 1:8-scale build that will take place over the course of roughly two years and at a total cost of approximately $1,500 — a considerable bargain compared to what building a 1:1-scale version of the Knight Industries Two Thousand (K.I.T.T.) would cost!
K.I.T.T. was based on a Pontiac Trans Am and was famously paired with Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) during the original Knight Rider series run from 1982-1986.
The detailed model includes opening and closing doors and windows, illuminated headlights and brake lights, and the iconic red scanner bar across the front. Additionally, the rear license plate rotates to display three different plates, including 010-FR, KNI 667, and KNIGHT.
When completed, the model’s electronic functions can be operated by a radio control watch that will activate the headlights and scanner, engine sounds, K.I.T.T.’s voice, and clips from the original series soundtrack.
Fanhome says that each delivery will include a magazine packed with 16 pages of information and articles about Knight Rider. while select shipments will include bonus collectibles and gifts with purchase, including a USB charger, art prints, and 1:43-scale replicas of K.I.T.T. and his evil twin, K.A.R.R.
Fanhome is part of De Agostini Publishing and works with top brands and licensors for collectibles and build-up projects inspired by Star Wars, Marvel, Street Fighter, The Fast and the Furious, and more.
