Excuse me for asking a real newbie question....

What horsepower does an R1 engine produce? I know the factory didn't give a number (at least to the public) and I've read sources that range from 180 to 250.

Anyone know (or have an educated guess...or better yet a dyno readout?)

Most sources I've seen state the R1 was about 240 horsepower and the R2 about 290 horsepower, with the R3 at about 335. To the best of my knowledge none of these were official Studebaker claims since they said the Avanti had "more power than you could use".

"Safe instant passing power".
