A historically profound leader in both automotive design and sports car racing, the 1952 Hudson Hornet set new standards in safety, interior space, and handling. It also set stock-car racing win records that would stand for decades. By mounting the floor at the bottom of the frame rails, the Hudson Hornet had a lower center of gravity that contributed to handling that was a class above its competition. Furthermore, structural rigidity and safety were enhanced by steel girders that wrapped into the roof. In an age where V8 cars boasted about their horsepower, Hudson built a 308ci L6 with “Twin-H” power that brought 40 out of 48 wins in 1952. Doc Hudson, the “Fabulous Hudson Hornet” of Pixar’s “Cars”, breathed new life into the awareness of the Hudson Hornet’s history and will naturally inspire many “Cars”-based liveries in Forza 4. Hudson produced cars until 1957 but they will long be remembered as an innovator and race champion.
