The "Need for Speed" movie has been getting plenty of publicity the past few days. A day after it was announced that the Ford Mustang will play a starring role in the movie, a new video "Making-Of" trailer was released on the "Need for Speed" YouTube channel. And it shows quite a lot of carnage of the supercar variety.

We’ve already touched on the McLaren P1 being a part of the movie a few months ago. Apparently, the P1 is there alright, together with a slew of other high-priced exotics, like the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, and the Koenigsegg Agera.

But what really caught our eye was the untimely demise of the P1, which made us wonder if all those supercars in the movie are actually replicas instead of the real thing.

Now, we wouldn’t put it past Dreamworks Studios and Electronic Arts to get the real McCoys, but if you watch the video and see what happened to the $1.15 million P1, you’re gonna start wondering about the studios plans for these cars.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
