Once again, the player hits the highways in his souped-up sports car, and once again, Car 504 is on his tail... and he's bringing his friends.

''High Speed'' is noted for several industry firsts -- it was the first pinball with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTpwBI4Ez9M a full theme song,]] the first Williams pinball with alpha-numeric displays, the first pinball to dynamically adjust match percentages and replay score values, the first solid-state pinball with detailed diagnostic reports, and the first game to detect and compensate for broken switches on the playfield. Even without these features, it is fondly remembered by numerous players for its adrenalin-pumping action and fast gameplay, a sterling example of why Steve Ritchie is considered "The Master of Flow". This was the most popular pinball of 1986 with over 17,000 tables sold.

A [[DigitalPinballTable video game version]] for the Nintendo GameBoy was developed by Unexpected Developments and published by Williams. Another video game version of the table is available for ''VideoGame/ThePinballArcade'', which was accidentally revealed much earlier than expected due to a [[GoodBadBugs in-game bug]] within the PC version when ''High Speed'' was originally released. Said bug also revealed that ''Pinball/JunkYard'' would be added as well, and there are files for ''[[Pinball/EightBall Eight Ball Deluxe]]'' that have yet to be used.
