R3-R4
A Studebaker Avanti R-3 driven by Andy Granatelli at Bonneville shattered 29 U.S. records in 12 hours in 1962: American class "C" Flying Start; 1 mile – 168.15 mph; 5 mile – 167.82 mph; 10 mile – 163.90. American class "C" Standing Start; 1 mile – 92.03 mph; 5 mile – 139.69 mph; 10 mile – 151.66 mph. All 29 records are the average speeds of a 2 way run, and are not the top speeds obtained. Granatelli came back with his R3 to score 170.78 mph, and broke five other Class C marks. Twelve Studebakers smashed 337 different USAC records in six classes. Production R-1 models listed 0-60 mph times of about 10.5 seconds, the standing-start quarter-mile in 17.0 seconds at about 80 mph, and top speeds of 115-120 mph.
