The R2 would set several land speed records for factory stock vehicles, eventually breaking 29 speed records between 1963-64, to become the “World’s fastest production car.” These records remained on the books for many years. Top speed was almost 169 miles per hour.

73:1 gears. Combined with power disc brakes, it is really a fantastic car to enjoy with the added bonus of that Paxton blower soundtrack.
