George Barris (1925-2015)

George Barris was the Hollywood Car King, and his creations are every bit as legendary as the stars who drove them on film and television.

His iconic customizations included transforming a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car into the famed Batmobile of 1960s TV sensation Batman and modifying a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am into the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT) from the hit 1980s series Knight Rider.

Due to the high-profile nature of his work, Barris can be counted among the most famous and successful car designers in the world.
