George Brough took a similar recipe to the Railton Straight Eight to produce the Brough Superior car from 1935-39 also based on Hudson components. The 1935-36 Brough Superior used a Hudson 4168cc sv straight-8 engine with Hudson chassis. From 1936 the Hudson 3455cc straight-six engine was used for the Brough Superior 3½-litre. Production ended in 1939. Brough Superior started manufacture of motorcycles at its works in Nottingham in 1919. His motorcycles tended to be custom built and individual to each owner, and were regarded as the Rolls-Royce of motorcycles. Motorcycle production ceased in 1940.
