David Hasselhoff Sells Knight Rider Car For $150,000
David Hasselhoff raised $150,000 (£90,000) for charity by selling off his personal Knight Rider car at auction.
The Baywatch star was given a 1986 Pontiac Firebird - based on the computer-controlled Knight Industries Two Thousand (Kitt) supercar from his hit 1980s Tv show - as a gift from a dedicated fan, and he decided to put it under the hammer to support the Starlight Children's Foundation.
After putting the one-of-a-kind vehicle up for sale in April (14), Hasselhoff recently revealed a car enthusiast bought it for a cool $150,000.
During a speech at the Cambridge Union in England on Saturday (24May14), the actor said, "I can't believe Knight Rider affected so many people in such a positive way. I just sold my car for $150,000 to a guy in Turkey."
The Kitt supercar was just one of the items Hasselhoff donated to Julien's Auctions' Hollywood Legends 2014 sale. Other items included his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, awards for his singing career, a lifeguard's jacket from the set of Baywatch, and his acoustic guitar.
