See my arghh technology post. The car can display in fifteen different measures of speed including mph. Unfortunately even with the manual (. 43 page section just on setting speed display) no one on the Top Gear team or the Mclaren factory could change it from kph.

Did I imagine the wing mirror sorry rear view camera , didn't retract?
