Another Pagani vote but Huayra

Also I love the Koenigsegg Agera cluster

Totally forgot about this one but a very good call. I liked the dash so much that I almost bought one... then I came to my senses and didn't.

I think the gauge cluster's purpose is to communicate vital information quickly with a minimum of distractions.

Therefore I think the E9X M3 cluster is a reference for good design.



The sliding scale is brilliant
Perfect font for legibility, avoids italics like so many other makers
Just the right amount of illumination from the rear is very well done and does not distract at night
Sliding redline is implemented much more elegantly and less obtrusive than E46 M3
Just the facts. RPM, Speed, Oil, Gas

Good design, through and through.

Sesto Elemento.
The cluster is simple and displays just what you need

THAT is hideous.
Misread the OP's question and thought this applied strictly to speedo setups.

Pagani. Any and all. Because handmade from carbon fiber and aluminum. Doesn't get more beautiful.

Second goes to Avendator, it's like an LFA but a little more colorful, a little wilder, a bit of a nod to crazy, old Lambos while staying very modern.

LFA and Aventador. Digital dashes are so cool.

I dislike the Porsche cluster. It's great that the tachometer is in the center but the cascading smaller circles next to it makes everything else look squished and not that easy to read. I don't need 5 circular instruments in front of me.

Old school 911 with black face, white numbers and orange needle - big fat tach front and center.

How can you tell your talking to a fighter pilot? He'll tell you.

Lol, wish I was flying a F/A-18. Didn't pass the OCS part, had the air contract though
