Anyone know what's the deal with this tachometer that works in the opposite direction? I was looking at this picture and it just didn't look right.

(No, I didn't alter this photo in any way- it's been in the Spy section of the gallery forever)

Looks like a bad photoshop flip on left side of pic. The mini logo on the wheel is backwards as well.
:confused:
Unless that's a dead pedal the pedals are backwards too!!!

Now that you've pointed that out (and I've looked a little closer) I'm sure you are right. This was part of a bunch of photos Gerhard Nintz took before the MINI was launched - hence their classification as "spy" photos. I wouldn't have thought he messed with them, but now I know better.

So, no mysterious tach exists. :(

Looks like the photo is actually of a RHD car. The whole thing has been flipped horizontally (hence backwards tacho, logo, etc.) & the speedo only has been corrected 'cos it was obvious & easy to 'shop

Seems a flip pic ! The audio and heater controls are reversed too... I don't see why photographers just let us view a lhd/rhd car if that is what they have snapped !
