The ‘General Lee’ Gets A 2020 Update With Twin Turbos & A Full Wide Body Kit

Based on a lightly-modified 1969 Dodge Charger, “The General Lee” is one of the most iconic and recognizable movie cars of all time. And though it made its final on-screen appearance in 1985 (not including commercials or the 2005 remake), it continues to play an influential role in the automotive space, as evidenced by one of the latest rendered works from automotive concept artist KD Kalim Design.

Starting with the late ‘60s, HEMI-powered stocker, KD has managed to thoroughly modernize the Charger, bestowing the muscle car with lowered suspension and a wide body kit with flared fenders and a large front splitter. The rear-end also gets a matching spoiler. The V8 that powers the Lee now sports a pair of turbochargers poking out through the hood, while the height of the windshield has also seemingly been trimmed down to allow for a more aggressive look. Deep-dish, eight-arm wheels also blend vintage and contemporary aesthetics, helping to update the Dodge without losing the Lee’s distinct identity.
