Two Ford Mustang GTs from the hit TV movie Knight Rider are heading to the auction block with Barrett-Jackson next month.

The screen-used cars will be offered as part of the highly anticipated Hot August Nights sale, which returns for the third year running to the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Nevada.

In 2008, NBC rebooted the 1980s TV classic Knight Rider, with a redesigned KITT inspired by the 2008 Shelby GT500KR. Two cars were customised and used during production – a regular version featuring a Ford Racing Whipple Supercharger, and an 'Attack Mode' version including a Ford Racing suspension package and Ford Racing mufflers.

The cars will be amongst five Mustangs offered directly from the Day Family Classic Cars Museum in California, a remarkable collection which encompasses famous and historic vehicles from around the world.

Further highlights from the collection will include a 2007 Ford Mustang Saleen Parnelli Jones Limited Edition signed by Steve Saleen and Parnelli Jones, and a 2008 Ford Shelby GT Barrett-Jackson Edition Coupe, signed by American Idol TV stars Ryan Seacrest, Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Kara DioGuardi.

“We’re proud to bring a group of vehicles from the well-known Day Family Classic Cars Museum to our Hot August Nights Auction,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Owners of large collections, like the Day family and Ron Pratte, have often turned to Barrett-Jackson to shine the spotlight on their vehicles over the last 44 years.”

“The cars being auctioned by the Day family in Reno Tahoe carry some unique provenance and are backed by some incredible star power as well,” added Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “As a true testament to the Barrett-Jackson family, Tom Day and his family have taken extraordinarily great care of these cars since purchasing them at past auctions, and each will be a fantastic vehicle for a first-time buyer or seasoned collector.”

The 3rd Annual Barrett-Jackson Hot August Nights Auction takes place in Reno Tahoe, Nevada on August 6-8.
