Wouldn’t it be nice to have a car that could talk you? And we’re not talking TomTom here. According to a new poll by garage company Kwik-Fit, that’s exactly what most people want after voting KITT the TV car most people would like to own.
The Pontiac Trans Am was the star of 80s cult telly show in Knight Rider starring David Hasselhoff and came top of the survey with 18.4% of the votes. Also fairing well was the Jaguar used by Morse in the ITV detective series with 16.1% of the vote and the Ferrari Testarossa from Miami Vice in at number 3 with 8.2%. Here’s the top 10:
1. KITT from Knight Rider 2. Inspector Morse's Jaguar MkII, 3. Ferrari Testarossa from Miami Vice, 4. Magnum PI's Ferrari 308, 5. The Batmobile, 6. Audi Quattro from Ashes to Ashes, 7. FAB1 Rolls-Royce from Thunderbirds, 8. General Lee (Dodge Charger) from Dukes of Hazzard, 9. The Saint's Volvo P1800, 10. The A-Team's GMC Vandura van.
And if you’re wondering what KITT is an acronym for, it’s Knight Industries Two Thousand. One for the pub quiz.
