David Hasselhoff raised $150,000 for charity by selling off his personal "Knight Rider" car at auction. The actor was given a 1986 Pontiac Firebird -- based on the computer-controlled Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT) supercar from his hit 1980s TV show -- as a gift from a dedicated fan, and he decided to put it up for auction to support the Starlight Children's Foundation.

After putting the one-of-a-kind vehicle up for sale in April, Hasselhoff recently revealed that a car enthusiast bought it for $150,000. During a speech at the Cambridge Union in England on Saturday, the actor said, "I can't believe 'Knight Rider' affected so many people in such a positive way. I just sold my car for $150,000 to a guy in Turkey."

The KITT supercar was just one of the items Hasselhoff donated to Julien's Auctions' Hollywood Legends 2014 sale. Other items included his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, awards for his singing career, a lifeguard's jacket from the set of "Baywatch" and his acoustic guitar.
