You can buy David Hasselhoff's KITT from 'Knight Rider' (and he'll deliver it to you)

The famous, crime-fighting car from the hit 1980s TV series Knight Rider is up for auction – and the winning bidder could receive a visit from the show's leading man himself, David Hasselhoff. Known as KITT – an acronym for Knight Industries Two Thousand – the car starred alongside Hasselhoff on the series as his highly advanced, artificially intelligent, indestructible, talking sidekick.

Around the tracks: A Tesla owner's questionable car horn goes viral

When we’re not creating it ourselves, the CarAdvice team spends a lot of time finding and consuming motoring content from all over the world.

Over and out for Chrysler 300 SRT: last affordable V8 sedan reaches the end of the road in Australia

The last affordable V8 sedan is no longer on sale in Australia – except for limited showroom stock – ending an era that lasted more than half a century. The Chrysler 300 SRT sedan has been discreetly withdrawn from sale locally even though it still appears on the company’s website. Only cars in showroom stock remain, but dealers have been advised they can no longer order one due to a shortage of V8s amid a surge in demand in the US.

VFACTS 2020: Country of Origin

It’s easy to think a car’s country of origin is the nation where the manufacturer is headquartered. All Toyotas come from Japan, all BMWs from Germany, for instance. Not so. According to data released by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI), the country of origin of our new cars are many and varied. In 2020 alone, at least 26 different countries built and manufactured cars that made their way to Australia and into our driveways.

2021 Kia Carnival still a chance for five stars, despite no centre airbag

The 2021 Kia Carnival is still a chance for a five-star ANCAP safety rating – despite not being fitted with a centre airbag. Becoming increasingly common in new cars, the centre airbag is used to reduce the impact between the two front occupants during the new Far Side Impact Test. The 2021 Kia Carnival comes with seven airbags, which includes full-length curtain airbags across three rows, and a driver’s knee airbag.
