Knight Rider’s KITT Stolen in Toronto
— Posted by Rodney
You know what feature the new version of the Knight Industries Two Thousand could use? Theft protection.
Apparently on a publicity event almost a week ago in Toronto Canada, someone managed to steal the actual Modified Mustang that is used in the new NBC series Knight Rider. RGBFilter says
The car was making a stop in Toronto for a publicity stunt in front of Union Station on Front Street.
In the video, you see the security team member wheel the new KITT off the flatbed truck and then exit the car (still running) to return to the truck. With the door still open, some impulsive car thief ran out and hopped in the car and took off.
According to those in attendance, this was a legitimate theft, and not a publicity stunt. If it was then they hired nothing but actors for the security team and PR people because moments after the video, the shit hits the fan and everyone is clearly upset.
Its been almost a week and no one has exposed it as publicity, and its not said if it was recovered.
