Updated below with answer and winner.

This year is the 30th anniversary of Microsoft Hardware, the team at the company that makes keyboards, mice and other accessories. To mark the occasion they’ve come out with a limited edition 30th Anniversary version of their Arc Touch Mouse. Only 30 of these were made, appropriately enough — and we’ve got one of them to give away.

From the pool of correct answers to this week’s Name that Tech Tune challenge, we’ll pick one person at random to win the mouse and a framed certificate from Microsoft verifying its authenticity. Are you ready? Here is this week’s tune.

Many of you will recognize that song, but the challenge is tougher than that. To have a shot at the prize, you need to tell us the full name of the vehicle brought to mind by that song — not just an acronym, or nickname, but the full name.

If you know the answer, send it to contest@geekwire.com.

Name that Tech Tune is a regular feature of the GeekWire radio show and podcast, airing at 7 a.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday on 97.3 KIRO-FM in Seattle, and running weekends on GeekWire.com.

If you’re stumped, one hint is that the year of the tune corresponds to the Microsoft Hardware anniversary. For more context, here’s the full Name That Tech Tune segment from this week’s show.

Send your entry to contest@geekwire.com for your chance to win the prize. Look or listen for the answer next week, and thanks for playing!

Update, 6/23: The answer (as many of you knew) was Knight Industries Two Thousand, better known as KITT, the car from the TV series Knight Rider, which started in 1982. We also accepted Knight Industries Three Thousand, the name used in a more recent sequel to the show. Congrats to our winner, Samantha Wilder.
