Next, after the title card (and just look at that gorgeous sky!), the montage focuses extensively on piece-meal views of this beautiful car. We see every detail.
We are looking at the elements not just of a machine, but a love-object.
Next, we meet our driver and main (human) character: Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff).
Next-up, we meet Michael Knight's boss, Devon Miles played by the great Edward Mulhare.
And again, back to the car. You should be sensing a pattern here. The car gets far more attention in this montage than do the human stars of the series.
We see K.I.T.T. traveling quickly at night, accelerating. Then, we see him avoiding explosions on a dirt road, blasting through a truck unharmed, and showing off his bulletproof paint-job in a rain of sparks.
Finally, back to that iconic image in the desert. A hero's car, racing toward adventure...and then, finally, into the distance.
Here's the montage in action:
