Hudson Also Supreme In Distinction It Has Always Set the Style, and the Super-Six Motor Which Increases Power 72% and Adds Years to Endurance is Exclusive in Hudson We have never sought to develop the Hudson Super-Six as the greatest speed and power car in the world. It is true that in speed-in hill-climbing in quick acceleration-no stock car ever matched it. Official records show that. But they are incidental. They were made in tests to prove Hudson endurance. Surely these great performance qualities are enough to account for Hudson's five years of leadership as the largest selling fine car in the world. Any owner would take pride in a car that none has equaled in any worthwhile performance record. Yet a large class of Hudson buyers se lected it for an altogether different quality. A Distinctive Design An Exclusive Motor Thousands chose it with an eye single to its beauty, charm and notable appearance. They hold none can surpass it in distinction. For the Hudson looks its supremacy in every line. But it is idle to think that those who primarily seek fine appearance in a car do not value the mechanical superiority of the Hudson Super-Six. Granted you will never require such great speed, yet Hudson's capacity means less than half load in ordinary driving. It in sures absolute freedom from strain. That extra reserve power means much on hills. It means much in flexibility and in quick response. It saves much changing of gears. It means utter smoothness-due to less vibration than any other type ever achieved. That, too, is a matter of record. The official proofs are open to all. In the exclusive Super-Six motor vibra tion is reduced almost to nil. Motor effi ciency is increased 8o%. Motor power is increased 72%, without added size or cylin ders. Endurance is almost doubled. The Super-Six principle would add these advan tages to any conventional type, six-cylinder motor. But no other can use it. Its type gives Hudson every advantage. Why accept a lesser car? All Accept Hudson as the Pattern Car And you will find in the Hudson all the beauty and luxury that imagination and skilled workmanship can create. But while its appearance is prized by all Hudson owners, and even dictates the choice of many, to most who know the Hudson its chief appeal must always be its performance and endurance. By every test it is supreme. The supply of Hudsons has never been sufficient for the demand. Thousands have waited months for certain wanted models. You can insure yourself against disappoint ment in delivery only by placing your order well ahead of the time you will require it.
