To drop that quickly I think it must be an electrical fault in the rev counter circuit, does it sound as though the revs are dropping?

yes, it sound as though the revs are dropping. I feel the car stopping at acceleration as if the turbo pressure ceased.
I chacked the turbo wastegate and it's ok. It holds the vacuum and moves smoothly. The vacuum system is faultless.
I thought there are any problem whit the clutch, it may slip but it was replaced 20,000km before that.

I looked at the video again and noticed that the revs went up first and then down, sounds more like the clutch slipping to me.
