Skip to comments.Every Classic Knight Rider Turbo Boost Sequence In One Video

KITT's Turbo Boost is an awesome car feature, right? So, every box-crashing, Styrofoam rock-smashing Turbo Boost sequence ever, packed into one video must be the most awesome thing ever, right?
Wikipedia defines Turbo Boost as:
Used in most episodes, a series of rear mounted undercarriage rocket motors allows KITT to accelerate to incredible speeds in excess of 200 mph (322 km/h). When activated in combination with the Trajectory Guidance System and a pair of rocket motors mounted just behind the front tires that lifted the front of the car, KITT could jump 40 feet (12,2 m) into the air and pass over obstacles in the road. The system also allowed KITT added power whenever he had to maneuver heavy objects such as pushing a heavy boulder off a cliff, or pulling a large vehicle out of danger. The boosters could fire forward or backward.
Robot Chicken arrived at Knight Rider's golden rule of Turbo Boost. As KITT tells Michael, "But Michael, Turbo-boost should only be used once per episode."
Cheesy 80's goodness. I think my favorite shot is at about 5:23 when KITT goes flying into an apartment's glass balcony door and INTO THE LIVING ROOM.
Musical accompaniment provided by Metallica (Creeping Death)
Oh, man, I can't tell you how long I've been waiting for this! Yeah, bay-beeeeeeeeeeeee...
Marking to view later.
Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social (and sometimes nostalgic) aspects that directly effects Generation Reagan / Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.
Freep mail me to be added or dropped. See my home page for details and previous articles.
Ping just ‘cause I know you’ll dig the soundtrack to this.
I know you’ve been waiting all week to see something this awesome.
I saw this earlier in the week and just knew I had to post it here. :)
Bump to view at home, where I don’t have the damn faggity-assed cool-stuff blockers.
The Duke boys never needed no dang turbo boost button...
I am sorry I didn’t ping you earlier. Thankfully, I don’t have cool-stuff blockers on my work PC!
Gotta agree with you there. I was always a bigger fan of the Dukes than Knight Rider.
bump for later
We didn’t, until two interns (one male, one female), not from my division, decided to see who could find the grossest porn on the internet. They got fired, but their manager did’t, and i’m pissed! I can’t even search for fishing gear now.
I wont the contest, anyway, without google.
Those are great! Thanks!
