KITT is Officially a Mustang, God-Like

I really didn't think there was any way to make the new Knight Rider any less appealing. A talking, crime-fighting car television show based on a prior talking, crime-fighting car television show that starred David Hasselhoff couldn't sound much worse, let alone when you add the original creator's description of "The Lone Ranger, with a car."

Yet miraculously, though the image of an ugly car and an out-of-touch press release, they may have set an entirely new benchmark for just how far television standards can be pushed in the direction of idiot.

As the original story resumes, the new KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand) is absolutely the coolest car ever created: its supercomputer capable of hacking almost any system; its weapons systems efficient; and its body -- thanks to its creator's work and nanotechnology -- is capable of actually shifting shape and color. Plus, its artificial intelligence makes it the ideal crime-fighting partner: logical, precise and possessing infinite knowledge.

To summarize, these are the traits to look for when deciding if a car is the absolutely coolest car ever created:

- Powerful, yet flawed, hacking ability. I mean a super-intelligent car is believable, but no car can hack every system.

- Efficient weapons. Wasting bullets is so un-green, man.

- Elements of psychedelia (e.g. changing shapes and color, the ability to play Jefferson Airplane albums.)

- Omniscience. (That only makes sense.)

See video of how an omniscient, absolutely coolest car behaves much like a drunk high schooler, doing donuts in an empty parking lot, right here.
