A new KITT supercar (bottom) will be unveiled in the fourth season opener of the NBC-TV action-adventure series Knight Rider, title Knight of the Juggernaut, Froday Sept. 20 (8-10pm) on NBC-TV. After being being demolished (top, left), KITT undergoes major reconstruction by a team of street-wise mechanics. What emerges is a newer, more powerful KITT, equipped with some unique surprises for road partner, Michael Knight (series star David Hasselhoff, top right).

'Knight Rider' to ride $250,000 new car

NEW YORK (UPI)-David Hasselhoff will be getting new wheels when "Knight Rider" returns to NBC this fall-at a reported cost of $250,000.

When the show makes its debut in its new slot on the schedule-Friday's from 8-9 p.m.-Hasselhoff's costar, supercar K.I.T.T., will be nearly destroyed and so will have to be totally rebuilt.

The new version of K.I.T.T. will be another tarted-up Pontiac TransAm, which is what Hasselhoff has been driving all along, but it will boast all kinds of new powers including super pursuit capabilities and super breaking modes. A nose extender will stretch out when the car is in its super pursuit mode.

Trade circles in Hollywood say the souped-up car cost the producers a quarter of a million dollars.

Most important to "Knight Rider" fans-the voice of K.I.T.T. remains William Daniels, which may be the car's most significant asset.
