Trivia
Throughout Season 1, there is another car that appears regularly besides the Knight Industries Two Thousand and Devon's Mercedes-Benz convertible. It is a red 1974 (or thereabouts) AMC Gremlin X, possibly one of the crew's personal vehicles. It was never used in a "supporting" role, but only as a vehicular "extra", usually driving away from the camera.

The "jumping car" was a hollow-fiberglass Trans Am

In many of KITT's jump scenes, the screen jumps to another angle (such as Michael driving) before landing. This is because more often than not, the front end of the stunt car is totaled upon landing.

Goofs
The copyright date at the end of the credits on the first (pilot) episode shows the roman numerals MCMLXXVII (1977) instead of MCMLXXXII (1982). Some people have suggested that this may have been when the idea was conceived rather than produced.

In many episodes, David Hasselhoff's stunt double looks absolutely nothing like him and is on screen long enough to be obvious.
Share this
In "Knight of the Phoenix", a stunt driver wearing a hood is visible in KITT when the car inches for ward behind the guard as Michael is trying to escape Comtron. In the episode "Big Iron", when Michael and KITT are about to be buried under tons of gravel, some shots show that the tractor tumbles a Pontiac Trans Am, rather than the concept car used in the series.
