David Hasselhoff has raised 150,000 dollars for charity by selling off his personal ‘Knight Rider’ car at an auction. The former ‘Baywatch’ star was given a 1986 Pontiac Firebird – based on the computer-controlled Knight Industries Two Thousand (Kitt) supercar from his hit 1980s Tv show – as a gift from a dedicated fan, and he decided to put it under the hammer to support the Starlight Children’s Foundation, Contact music reported. After putting the one-of-a-kind vehicle up for sale in April, Hasselhoff recently revealed that a car enthusiast in Turkey bought it. The Kitt supercar was just one of the items Hasselhoff donated to Julien’s Auctions’ Hollywood Legends 2014 sale. Other items included his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, awards for his singing career, a lifeguard’s jacket from the set of Baywatch, and his acoustic guitar.
