That's a cool looking car! I don't know how it would look as a KITT though.

A Peugeot :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Even if it's a manufacturer from my country, I can't imagine seeing KITT in it.

KITT must be an American car 8) 8)

Cool-looking car, but definitely not KITT material. Part of what made KITT special was that the car was built from a regular American car that most people could afford to buy. That Peugeot would be closer to James Bond material.

I have to admit, I think that car is so ugly, it wouldn't even be featured in a porn film.

Just my opinion of course. I could be wrong.

That car kinda bears a resemblance to Tom Cruise's Lexus in Minority Report:

What I don't like about both of these cars is that the rear end looks like it should be the front, and vice-versa. I'm also not a fan of the Peugeot's prominent, stately-looking front grill nor its insect-like side-view mirrors.

Speaking of KITT-like cars, I'm wondering if anyone else saw the film Frankenstein Unbound and remembers the futuristic talking car that John Hurt's character drove. I've been scouring the net for a pic, but without success. :?

I have that film on VHS. The film is by Roger Corman, based on the movie by Brian Aldiss, whose short story "Supertoys Last All Summer Long" became the basis for the last Stanley Kubrick produced film, directed Steven Speilberg, "Artificial Intelligence" (or "A.I." as it was called for promotional runs).

That looks like a better KARR than KITT to me. I dunno. just looks evil.
