The response to the new Hudson Italia is mixed. Some criticize the style being too baroque but the greatest drawback is its side-valve, six-cylinder engine. Almost all competitors offers fiery V8s. Hudson does not have a V engine but the six-cylinder Twin-H Power of the Hornet would be much better choice. Is it "a gimmick with no commercial future" ? Hudson doesn't believe that and Frank Spring is working on 4-door saloon version of the Italia.
