Tour Car #1




In 1983, Universal Studios had multiple K.I.T.T. cars built for exhibitions throughout the world. For the next few years, these cars would travel to various malls and expos and were greeted with long lines of fans waiting to get a chance to sit in their favorite car. This first car was an SE model, with tan armrests, manual window cranks and a manual transmission. We've been able to identify at least 7 different tour cars in our research, and the current whereabouts of most of these cars are unknown. Many mysteries surround these cars, such as who actually did the construction work. Was it Universal? Was it Jay Ohrberg? Carl Casper? We will find out!

  2. Hi!

    I enclose a link of a Spanish magazine where it is shown the Tour Car that came to Spain in 1987 (page 13 of the PDF file).
    It is slightly different to the "standard" season 2 KITT. I hope you wil find interesting.
