I like the way the M cars have the rev counter displayed on the windshield.

Yeah definitely LFA/2014 IS. Now if only they'd make an IS350 engine with a factory turbo I might (have) considered getting one.

LFA is amazing, but I really love the Audi R8. Beautiful and sporty tachometer

Not bad at all! For an analog tach it's pretty sleek.

I thought I was going to be different by saying LFA, guess not. I like the whole dash on that car.

Well while on the topic of the LFA I also think that car has one of the more beautiful and unique exhaust notes for a supercar. It's like a banshee. Very F1 car-ish.

Here's a driver's POV from when the Nurburgring edition LFA (one of 50/500 made which I think has like 10 more HP and a couple of tweaks from the other 450 LFAs) nabs the 6th fastest Nurburgring time on earth (3rd fastest stock production time behind the viper srt10 ACR and porsche 918 prototype) -



It's actually all the more impressive when you realize that this time was achieved on street legal stock tires and not street-illegal drag radials. I know the Viper was done on drag radials, although I'm not sure about the porsche 918 spyder.

Here's one where you can hear it from the outside -

Literally any Porsche. Big fat tach front and center.

The LFA does take tops though.

False. While the gauge cluster might look good, the rest of the dash has much to be desired.



THAT is hideous.

Wow, that is pretty pedestrian for a $200,000 car interior (IIRC that's from the 911 GT2 RS).

Although that still wouldn't stop me from wanting to own one , but it's surprising nonetheless.

Ideal functionality. Giant tach, digital speedo. I wish all dashes were like this.
