Can Ye Lend Me 150,000 Bob Until The Weekend? I’m Absolutely Skint.

See, this is why it would be cool to be rich:

KITT, the flame-throwing, river-jumping, talking muscle car from the ’80s TV show “Knight Rider,” is up for sale.

Restored to its debut-season glory, the modified black 1982 Pontiac Trans Am is offered at $149,995 at a Dublin auto dealership. Johnny “Vette” Verhoek of Kassabian Motors has had the car, officially called Knight Industries Two Thousand, on display for about a month.

(…)

Although it cannot achieve the 300 mph speeds that KITT reached, soar 50 feet in the air or throw smoke bombs, key features of the star car are intact. Perhaps most important, the red scanner light on the nose glows and makes a humming noise.

The car has two working video screens on the dashboard, and the cockpit features buttons that light up in green, yellow and red: ski mode, rocket boost, micro jam, silent mode, oil slick and eject.

*wistful sigh*
