The Hudson Motor Car Company was an American car manufacturer active between 1909 and 1954. In 1954, Hudson merged with Nash-Kelvinator Corporation to form American Motors (AMC). The Hudson name was continued through the 1957 model year, after which it was discontinued.
The company had a number of firsts for the auto industry; these included dual brakes, the use of dashboard oil-pressure and generator warning lights, and the first balanced crankshaft, which allowed the Hudson straight-six engine (dubbed the "Super Six" in 1916) to work at a higher rotational speed while remaining smooth, developing more power for its size than lower-speed engines.
Hudson's first and so far only appearance in the Gran Turismo series is in Gran Turismo 6.
