    Too much sax, not enough synth. And Nightman's not a super-vehicle!

    but KITT with the MBS? KITT could get the ten since christine's regen wasn't really fast or instant. it was more dependant on richie and his mindset/health. at the end of the movie when richie died, she kinda lost the will to go on and was crushed into a cube. if he hits her with the same level of power that he hit KARR with, he takes the ten count.
    Coolness. Good to have some clarity to help with the foggy memories.

    Uhmm, wouldn't crashing continuously into KITT be not unlike banging one's own head into a block of granite for Christine? That thing was seriously tough.

    I'm guessing that unless KITT can manage a 10-count -- which is entirely possible, he has literally flown through KARR ('Turbo Boooost!') and reduced it to debris -- Christine is going to win this one through sheer, raw endurance (and KITT literally gassing out).

    KARR..damn...talk about your deep cuts. How cool was KARR’s voice??

    My young mind was (and still is) blown away by KITT destroying the monstrous KARR.

    I mean, how often do we see homicidal suicidal cars with lasers that talk like James Bond villians?

    Yeah, this is just going to be KITT blasting through Christine, and that being enough for a 10. Also, KITT can literally just sit there without moving and let Christine slam into him/it. She isn't even going to scratch the paint. KITT, when armored up, was seriously damaged once in the show, IIRC: when Michael got all cray and decided to try to knock the wheel off of the similarly-armored Goliath (a semi with the same arrmor). That smashed KITT up, but KITT still managed to drive away from the wreck after Michael did some MacGuyvering. Outside of that, KITT slammed through rebar, brick, concrete, stone, other vehicles, etc. And KITT's accelleration, even before Super Pursuit Mode was added, was such that it went from like 60 to 225 mph and faster (literally, you saw the speed going up on a police radar gun until it flipped at 225) in like 3 or 4 seconds. That's damn near as fast as a top fuel dragster, and massively, stupidly faster than F1 cars or modded high-end superbikes.

    KITT is rolling "screw you guys, I'm going home" to any and all physics.

    the only reason KITT lost his MBS was due to going up against the juggernaut, which knew his weak point before hand and utterly wrecked him to the point where KITT "died".

    Christine, is like a 50's car right? weren't those types of cars extremely tough, heavy and durable compared to modern cars? not saying KITT can't rip her apart but she isn't made out of aluminum or something.

    IIRC, Kitt has a laser that can burn through steel. If so, I don't think Christine's durability will be enough to tank that. Plus if Kitt does have a laser he could just target Christine's wheels and take them all out, incapacitating her for a ten count.

    Additionally, if Kitt can bust up KARR into flaming fragments by Turbo-boosting through it, and the only thing wrong with KARR's fully-bulletproof shell was the fact that it had a minor weakpoint that even KITT wasn't certain would make a difference, I'm pretty cool with KITT being able to smash apart regular, 1950's style automobile steel.

    well, the laser really wasn't standard gear for KITT. it had to be installed beforehand for situations that called for it. he has used it a lot but i'm hard press to say it was standard gear.
