6000 rpm??? that is when Vtech kicks in. The redline is 9000 rpm on the 99-03's and 8000rpm from therafter.

Very few cars have the 9000rpm redline.

that's what I meant. This thing just flies once you cross 6000 rpm. The other cars in the non ferrari/lambo category to have redlines at around 8k rpm are probably the M cars from BMW.

Default PICS : Celebrating the Rev Counter! - Offbeat POV

For me, the most interesting would be the animation of the mechanism of a chronometric. Can someone oblige?

Default The BMW Black Panel

My favorite will always remain the High Tech yet minimalist Black Panel from Beemer.

+1 to that. Hate everything about that console. Placement, colour, design, font...everything!

Among classics, my favourite is the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 (1967), also called "Eleanor". Absolutely stunning, nothing beats her!!



Among more recent cars, the Dodge Challenger SRT8 (2006) looks quite impressing too..

Of late, there have been so many sleek designs for the tachometer ( and speedometer). Some of the designs that I loved (in A to D segments) are:

a) XUV
b) Verna
c) Civic

One of the best designs that I would rate is of the i45 which is yet to be launched (source: Cardekho.com):




Going further, I would love to see the companies adopting the Jaguar styling of variable designs I know its a long shot, but wishing is free
