David Hasselhoff’s autograph is up for sale … and it comes with a free car. Wel, it’s really the other way around.
Die 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am wasn’t used to film “Knight Rider,” but is a picture-perfect recreation of Michael Knight’s autonomous sidekick with its then-futuristic digital dashboard and scanning red light at the front of the hood.
The black coupe is in running condition and Hasselhoff put his signature on the dashboard for extra cache. He’ll also personally deliver it to the winner if the highest bid exceeds the reserve price by 25%.
That price has not been disclosed, but the auction house estimated that the car would sell for $ 175,000 aan $ 300,000, so it’s likely in that range. Based on the current high bid of $ 475,000, Hasselhoff had better get ready to get behind the wheel.
The auction runs through Jan. 23, egter, so it could go much higher by then and the winning bidder is also on the hook for a 21% buyer’s premium.
