It has been rumored for quite some time that David Hasselhoff will be in the US stage of this year’s Gumball 3000 Rally and that he’ll have something to do with a charity auction. Well, it has just been confirmed that the Hoff will be presenting a replica of the original K.I.T.T. car at the final auction that will be held in Las Vegas.
As we already told you through our live coverage of the rally, every night an auction was held for various items, to determine the next day’s starting grid. Well, it seems like after everyone will have crossed the finish line, a final auction will be held to wrap things up.
The proceeds go to charity through the Gumball 3000 Foundation that teamed up with AnastasiaDate.com and AsianDate.com this year to bring this KITT replica to life.
The car was put together using a 1983 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am as the starting point along with its 5-liter engine. All the original parts are still there, including the headlights that used to pop up when needed.
Of course, fiberglass was used to get it into a shape similar to the one KITT had, pulsating LEDs included. Inside, even more custom parts await, making this thing as close to the real deal as possible. The best bit? A voice box of William Daniels (the original voice of KITT) with many phrases from the show included.
“While the focus of the Gumball 3000 rally tends to be on the exhilarating excitement of the global car rally, as an organization, we are concentrated on using this event as a way to give back and support charitable initiatives,”said Maximillion Cooper, Gumball 3000 founder. “This year, we’re proud to partner alongside AnastasiaDate.com and AsianDate.com to find a meaningful charity to present the proceeds to in the near future.”
The auction will begin in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, May 30th at around 8:45 in the MGM Village.
