David Hasselhoff's personal Knight Rider car is to be sold at auction to raise money for charity.

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 fans.

It is one of a string of personal items Hasselhoff is auctioning off, and other lots in the sale include his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, awards for his singing career, a lifeguard's jacket from the set of Baywatch, and his acoustic guitar.

The items will go under the hammer as part of Julien's Auctions' Hollywood Legends 2014 sale in April (14). Proceeds from Hasselhoff's lots will go to the Starlight Children's Foundation.
