Although “Knight Rider” is well-known TV series from the ’80s featuring the Pontiac Trans Am as K.I.T.T., in 2008, it was adapted into a movie that was received with mixed reactions. However, its Shelby GT 500 was a very cool and memorable car, fitted with all the typical K.I.T.T. equipment, weapons, and chameleon paint (via Motor 1).
There is a reason why the Shelby GT was in the film. The 2007 Shelby GT 500 was something else. It looked mean, had an aggressive design with multiple upgrades, and sounded terrifying thanks to the new 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine with 500 HP and 480 lb.-ft of torque. This was the first production Mustang that broke the 500 HP barrier and was the most powerful muscle car at the moment.
