FanHome Launches Knight Rider KITT Car Build-Up Model

FanHome sent along a press release announcing the release of their Knight Rider KITT Car Build-Up Model, which is one of their latest offerings.

Fanhome, the leader in subscription-based collections and models, today announced the U.S. release of its latest monthly subscription series offering Knight Rider fans the opportunity to build K.I.T.T., the legendary talking car and stylish hero that fought thrilling adventures with series protagonist Michael Knight, played by David Hasselhoff.

Originally aired with Universal Studios, Glen A. Larson’s Knight Rider set millions of fans glued to the TV screen in the 80’s, and now fans, collectors, and hobbyists alike can build a step-by-step exact replica at a 1:8 scale of the nostalgic gem.

As one of the most popular TV cars around, Fanhome is bringing to life the charismatic sidekick to living rooms across the country. With step-by-step instructions and the necessary tools for assembly, fans can recreate both the build-up model’s interior and exterior down to the smallest detail. All doors and windows boast opening and closing mechanisms, as well as illuminated headlights, brake lights, and a dynamic red scanner, used by K.I.T.T. to sweep hypnotically across the front of the car to “see” and add to his sum of knowledge.  Additionally, the car’s rotating mechanism allows subscribers to display three different license plates, including 010-FR, KNI 667, and the famed “KNIGHT.”

While the iconic character was originally equipped with artificial intelligence and a unique personality, Fanhome’s build-up model includes a radio control watch that activates all the functions of the K.I.T.T. model. With the press of a button, fans can use the control to turn on the headlights and scanner, activate the audio to hear K.I.T.T. say his famous phrases, activate engine and other revving noises, and play the audio of the legendary soundtrack from the series.
