Some stunts you see in movies wouldn’t play out as well if you tried them in real life, but apparently stuntman Raymond Kohn didn’t get that memo.
Kohn used a specially made 1969 Dodge Charger in an attempt to recreate the famous jumps performed in “The Dukes of Hazzard” in downtown Detroit. His Charger certainly looks and sounds like the Dukes brothers’ General Lee, but his stunt definitely didn’t go as smoothly as the ones in the TV show.
To his credit, Kohn had no issue admitting that the jump actually was as scary as it looked.
Kohn’s car traveled 134 feet and reached as high as 25 feet off the ground, according to Autoblog. The replica vehicle apparently was modified to absorb the brunt of the forces created by Kohn’s landing.
