Original 427 Cobra. It is well documented that they did some minor damage to the car at the time.

This particular example is actually a 1966 model. According to the July/August 2006 issue of Motor Trend Classic, it is serial number CSX3255. Another authentic Cobra (serial number CSX3243) and a replica were also used in filming. One of the Cobras (it is unclear which) sustained some nose damage during a crash into the L.A. River's concrete wall during filming. The car has since been repainted in red.

I don't recall ever seeing a speedometer before that the needle sweeps counter-clockwise as speed increases.

Rev counters and speedometers which worked 'in opposition' to each other were fairly standard on British sports cars until the late 1950's or thereabouts. It was supposed to be easier to see at a glance what was happening. And when the needles were pointing directly at one another you knew you couldn't go any faster. :D

Fiat's x1/9 had a counter-clockwise moving needle on the rev counter so You could see when You were aproaching the red line (which is only natural when You are driving an Italian car),otherwise it would have been obscured by the rim of the steering wheel.The speedo (to the left of the rev counter), operated clockwise.This meant You could see high end revs and high(comparitive)speed.Anything else was not imporant.
