Better yet...release an SDK so programmers like me could really have some fun with it!
Press and hold the left control wheel's ok button from at least a second or two before turning the car over and hold it until the car says test, then scroll up or down through the test mode screens and you can get a digital speedometer but in the process you give up all other functions of the trip computer until you either press and hold ok until it exits test mode or when you restart the car next time without doing this.

This doesn't break anything, but its not the ideal way to get what you were asking for.

You can see the engine temperature, engine speed, vehicle speed, etc in test mode.

You will have to look at the gear shift lever and follow the tach if you were to shift it manually, or to engage the cruise control as they won't show up on the test screen.
