NEWS: Dodge Charger

Scalextric C3044 Dodge Charger
General Lee, Dukes of Hazzard

Scalextric will soon be releasing the Dukes of Hazzard's Dodge Charger, the General Lee.

From Wikipedia: 'The Dukes of Hazzard is an American television series that originally aired on the CBS television network from 1979 to 1985. It was inspired by the 1975 film Moonrunners, which was also created by Gy Waldron and had many identical or similar character names and concepts. The television series The Dukes of Hazzard followed Bo and Luke Duke, two cousins living in a rural part of the fictional Hazzard County, Georgia, racing around in their modified 1969 Dodge Charger R/T, The General Lee, evading corrupt county commissioner Boss Hogg and his inept county sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. One of the memorable features of the series were the hair-raising car chases, leaps and crashes that the General Lee car was put through.'

Scalextric have produced a great looking Charger and I see one of the Duke boys is behind the wheel, makes you wonder why Scalextric didn't put Daisy Duke in the passenger seat?
