Comes with collectors box and acrylic display case, and case can be removed from the stand. Knight Rider is an American television series that originally ran from September 26, 1982, to August 8, 1986. The series was broadcast on NBC and starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a high-tech modern-day knight fighting crime with the help of an advanced, artificially intelligent and nearly indestructible car. Conceived and produced by Glen A. Larson, the show was an instant hit. KITT is the short name of two fictional characters from the adventure TV series Knight Rider. While having the same acronym, the kitt are two different entities: one known as the Knight Industries Two Thousand, which appeared in the original TV series Knight Rider, and the other as the Knight Industries Three Thousand, which appeared first in the two-hour 2008 pilot film for a new Knight Rider TV series and then the new series itself. In both instances, KITT is an artificially intelligent electronic computer module installed in a highly advanced, very mobile, robotic automobile: the original KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand) as a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am, and the second KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand) as a 2008-2009 Ford Shelby GT500KR. Self-made billionaire Wilton Knight rescues police detective Michael Long after a near fatal shot to the face, giving him a new identity (via plastic surgery) and a new name: Michael Knight. Wilton selects Michael to be the primary field agent in the pilot program of his Knight Industries-funded public justice organization, the Foundation for Law and Government (FLAG). The other half of this pilot program is the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), a heavily modified Pontiac Trans Am with numerous features including an extremely durable shell and frame, controlled by a computer with artificial intelligence. Michael and KITT are brought in during situations where "direct action might provide the only feasible solution". Heading FLAG is Devon Miles, who provides Michael with directives and guidance. Dr. Bonnie Barstow is the chief engineer in charge of KITT's care, as well as technical assistant to Devon. William Daniels as the voice of KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand) -- the autonomous car artificial intelligence with whom Michael Knight is partnered. Daniels, who simultaneously also starred on St. Elsewhere, requested to not be credited for his role as KITT's voice. A Super Máquina, titulo no Brasil e O Justiceiro, titulo em Portugal foi uma série de televisão produzida por Glen A. Larson (que também fez outras séries como Galactica, Duro na Queda e Magnum) e produzida pela Universal Studios. Em 2008 foi criada uma nova série com o mesmo nome original, e com novos atores; no Brasil a série ficou conhecida como A Nova Super Máquina, e em Portugal como O Novo Justiceiro. A série iniciou em setembro de 1982 e encerrou em maio de 1986, totalizando 4 temporadas e 90 episódios produzidos. KARR (acrónimo de Knight Automated Roving Robot, o Robot Rodante Automatizado Knight en la versión española) es la versión prototipo de KITT, originalmente diseñado por Wilton Knight y construido por su empresa Knight Industries. Al terminar el vehículo, la CPU de KARR fue instalada y activada. Sin embargo, un error de programación hizo que la computadora fuese inestable y potencialmente peligrosa, debido a su directiva primaria de auto-preservación. El proyecto fue suspendido y el automóvil fue puesto en almacenamiento hasta que se pudiera encontrar una solución.
