Are they slow on purpose? As in more torque or is it to stop people speeding them round a yard?

they are about 200bhp iirc  rather than the 400- 600 bhp  a conventional  artic  tractor unit  runs now 

they  are short geared  and  have a low top speed  precisely becasue they are shunters  (hence the   veranda , the car door opening onto the veranda, the air and electric lines  being  easy to grab  on the veranda and the powered  lift + lower on the fifth wheel rather than faffign with the landing legs on the trailer

I tried to get the (phone) camera to focus on the dash rather than the road, but it wouldn't have it.

This is halfway down my commute, I can't moan really.

Highlights how stupid a lot of modern car instruments are are. Most people will barely take that above 30, let alone to 140.

I think it’s simply because Ford used the same speedo unit on the Ka as they did in the Escort Cosworth or something.

I’m sure someone out there has built some sort of insane Ka purely to get that needle all the way to 140.

Pretty crap dash in the 202 as it only has a speedo fuel gauge and ammeter all in one with only one bulb to illuminate it. The oil light is pretty bright though.

Here's my main form of transport from while I was on holiday...

 

2015 Ford Explorer.

 

IMG_20171020_203739.jpg

 

Also had a quick rummage around on my PC...

 

We've got:

 

1980 VW T25 1.6CT Camper van.

80vwt25.JPG

 

1996 Peugeot 306 Xnd.

96pug306xnd.JPG

 

1993 Vauxhall Corsa 1.5TD LS.

93corsa1-5td.jpg

 

1998 Jaguar XJ8 (belonged to a friend, but I borrowed it from time to time).

98jagxj8.jpg

 

2007 Citroen C1 (work pool cars - my experiences with which actually lead to me buying my 107).

07c1.JPG

 

Last one for now, 2003 Ford Fusion Zetec - one of my parent's cars.  Sadly the last of theirs I think I got a night shot of.  Don't think I did with any of the later ones they had.

fusion53.JPG

 

Realised that I don't have one of these for the Saab or 107, I should fix that...

 

Edit: Found some from a couple of vans I've hired over the last few years...

 

2005 Renault Traffic.

 

05renaulttraffic.jpg

 

2014 Mercedes Sprinter.

 

15sprinter.jpg

 

...Should be one floating around for the 2015 Transit which I had shortly after that Sprinter...but I've not figured out what I did with that file yet.  Will add it when it turns up.

I am a VW/Audi guy and I like the 80s GL and above clocks. I understand spec differences and why there are differences in clocks specs. But HOW could VW spec a camping van made for holidays and long distances with only this T3 (T25 isn't) dash with only this poor instrumentation? A whole fullsize space for rev counter etc. only displaying a fuel gauge, were you joking? Not even a clock? Piech and Lopez (later), did they do a trip to Finland with this crappy dash? 10 Deutsche scheiß-Mark saved on this!

In fairness to my VW, it started life as a panel Van and was later converted into a camper...and it was only the 1.6 so obviously was the poverty spec!
