David Hasselhoff raises USD 150k for charity by selling Knight Rider car
Washington: 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, Contactmusic 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.
