Hype: Have K.I.T.T. From Knight Rider Charge Your Phone Thanks To Think Geek

Posted on 07.15.15 | Joyce Emocling No Comments


If you’re into cars then you are probably a fan of Knight Rider and I mean the real Knight Rider not that reboot crap from a few years ago!  If you’re a fan of Knight Rider you know that one of the best things about the show was K.I.T.T., the Pontiac Trans-Am with a sentient artificial-intelligence.  K.I.T.T. was characterized by a small interface in the interior of the car with three light bars that pulsated as K.I.T.T. spoke.  It was freakin’ awesome!

Now, thanks to Think Geek you can have K.I.T.T. in your car as well in the form of a USB charger that plugs into your 12V outlet.  While not 100% faithful to the K.I.T.T. from the show it looks darn well good enough to evoke some awesome 80s memories.  The best part about it is that it actually talks! And the lights pulsate to go along with the audio!  Pretty sweet right?!

This K.I.T.T. charger can be yours for a mere $29 (plus shipping) on ThinkGeek.com.  That is a steal compared to the $100,000 it cost to build the original K.I.T.T.  All you need is one of these units, a Pontiac Trans-Am and a sweet David Hasselhoff 80’s afro and you’re equipped to fight crime (not really)!  I definitely need this in my life.  Like, now…

Hype Collab: FATLACE x Vertex T&E “Black Beauty” 330mm Steering Wheels

Posted on 09.22.13 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

I know I have been posting a lot of collabs lately but they just seem to keep on coming!  This particular collab is one of those bits that will be really hard to get!  See, the guys at FATLACE teamed up with Vertex T&E in Japan to produce the “Black Beauty” steering 330mm steering wheel.

As the name suggests, the steering wheel is all black but it does feature white stitching around the inner circumference of the wheel and also has the Fatlace and Vertex logos in black stitching along with the ethos “No Matter How Hard You Try, You Can’t Stop Us Now”, also in black stitching. 

Sounds fresh right?  Well, there is a catch: only 20 wheels have been produced!  Yes! Just 20!  The only way to get one is to order online at Fatlace’s online shop and they go on sale this Wednesday.  So, if you want a super rare item for your interior then you better pound some serious caffeine on Tuesday night!  Good luck!

Hype Collab: Cusco x Bride Seats Are Two JDM Birds With One Stone

Posted on 08.30.13 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Collaborations happen a lot more often than they used to.  In fact, its so common that its hard to be impressed by them anymore.  EXCEPT, when its a collab between two brands which make awesome stuff that people actually care about.  This is one of those rare instances people!  Cusco and Bride have come together for a line of seats!  Ok this actually happened a while back but I fell off a little on my seat game.  Forgive me!  Anyhow if you weren’t aware before, now you are!  Granted the seats are subtle but that is kind of why people like Bride seats in the first place.  They look good without being over the top. 

If you are interested in a “Cusco Edition” Bride seat they are available at Evasive Motorsports and range from about $750 up to a little over $1,600 depending on the seat model and the materials chosen.  To get a quick look at the four seats in the line just click the thumbnail below.

Hype: PasswordJDM Carbon Fiber Oil Filter/AC Pump Shield For Scion FR-S & Subaru BRZ

Posted on 07.19.13 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

It is really hard to add carbon fiber somewhere on a car and have it not improve the overall look.  Its certainly possible, but very difficult.  That’s why one could almost never go wrong with engine bay carbon fiber accessories.  The example you see above is an oil filter/AC pump shield for the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ.  It just looks damn good doesn’t it?  It is also done in dry carbon for extra strength.  You can get this and a few other carbon fiber engine bay pieces from PasswordJDM.com

Hype: JDMEGO Reservoir Cover

Posted on 03.14.12 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

We have all seen them under the hoods of Hondas at car shows.  Those little sock-like deals that are used to cover a reservoir.  I have seen covers from Spoon, Mugen, even Ninja Turtle wristbands used as covers!  Those are all cool but I think the cover by JDMEGO has a unique flavor to it.  It features the old school logo and comes in orange like the early Mugen covers.  If nothing else you can still rock it as a wristband!  It will only set you back 10 bucks at the JDMEGO store.  Not bad!

In this particular post JDM stands for “Jamaican Domestic Market” as Evasive Motorsports has revealed a special “Kingston Edition” Personal steering wheel featuring red, green, and yellow stitching representing the Jamaican rasta culture.  Being of Jamaican decent myself I am pretty hyped that Personal released a wheel like this!  Maybe one of these wheels will find their way onto a future MotorworldHype project car.  If you want one for yourself, hit up Evasive Motorsports  and pick one up for about $300.  Lawd have merrrrrcyyyy!
