Tony Soprano was the boss. So it's fitting the sale of his Escalade should set a record.

The car that the late actor James Gandolfini drove in his role as the mob boss Soprano on the HBO hit show "The Sopranos" sold at auction for more than $119,000.

According to RR Auction, the white 2003 Cadillac Escalade went up for sale on November 12. The model has a resale value of only about $8,000, and RR Auction expected the Soprano car to sell for between $30,000 and $50,000.

It was used during the last three seasons of the series, which was on the air for six years, and was frequently featured during interior shots and exterior shots.

Before Gandolfini died in 2013, he signed the car's interior in three different locations -- inside the driver's side sun visor, on a panel above the glovebox, and on the back of the driver's seat headrest.

"Once we had realized we had broken the previous sales record price for a 'Sopranos' used vehicle, we were thrilled with the results of the auction," RR Auction EVP Robert Livingston said in a statement.

In 2013, a 1999 Chevrolet Suburban that appeared on the show during the first four seasons sold for $110,000.
