R6400v2; R7000; R7800 ;XR 500; all those second hand on ebay..
amazing speed depends on many factors like clients compatibility, ISP,
speed or router settings…

Amazing speed and range! Only internal antennas! Easy dd-wrt support! Full dual band support and only $50!
Back to antennas reality, with countless 'which router to buy' threads or topics existing you could also search.
Recommended: R7800 (XR450/XR500), R7500v2, EA8500 (serial flash), R9000 (R8900/XR700), x86 (J4125).
Hide main router so use access points without antennas with wired Ethernet backhaul or tri-band if you must.

Amazing Grace is a good tune, amazing speed at $50 only, please manage your expectations.

Even the best deal for the best equipment imagine say you be able to get a r9000, wifi wise is still depends on the clients capabilities and router settings + environmental factors around setup.

Alozaros said it, it depends on many factors and by the verbiage used by the OP I can see expectations are unrealistic already.
