A modified 1969 Dodge Charger, painted to look like the General Lee from the TV Show “The Dukes of Hazzard,” nearly became the most expensive car ever auctioned. The auction closed at $9,900,500 at 1:00 pm Friday. That puts it just $1.1 million away from the $11 million paid for a 1931 Bugatti Type 41 Royale Sports Coupe sold by the auction house Christie’s in 1987. To date, that is the highest price ever paid for a car at auction. The car was used in the show, was owned by John Schneider, who played Bo Duke in the series. The car has been extensively modified, and now has a 725 horsepower Hemi motor, Dodge Viper brakes and a roll cage, all of which allow it to race at over 200 miles per hour. WOW!!!
