David Hasselhoff has sold Knight Rider car. Known for such lead roles as (Michael Knight) in the eighties series Knight Rider and beach hunk lifeguard (Mitch Buchannon) in Baywatch he sold it off for charity raising one hundred and fifty thousand dollars by auctioning off his personal car.
The 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.”
He also donated other items to Julien’s Auctions’ Hollywood Legends 2014 sale. Including his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, awards for his singing career, a lifeguard’s jacket from the set of Baywatch, and his acoustic guitar.
