Ian added: “Some of the technology on board – like wireless phone charging – is quite impressive for the money and this class of car. I like the LED lights as well, as they help to create a clear brand identity for SEAT.”
• How to jump-start a car
The Ferrari (chassis number 1451 GT) was originally built to compete in the 1959 Le Mans 24-hour and had been off the production line for no more than 5 days, before it was tearing up the tarmac at the world’s oldest endurance race.
By their nature, CVTs are easy to despise. Their simple design has an elegance to it, but without the stepped, distinct shifts of a conventional transmission, the engine makes a beeline for its torque peak, where it drones on as speed builds. Fortunately, CVTs work better with modern turbocharged engines like the Honda 1.5T that have broad torque curves so that there’s usually adequate grunt on hand even at lower engine speeds. Honda pushes that advantage even further in the Accord’s CVT by building in virtual gear steps that produce a more natural engine note during acceleration.
What you must not do is apply the brakes, as this will only make the situation worse. Instead, a light application of the throttle should settle the rear end down, so that you can take some steering lock off and follow the corner round.

It’s easier to drive with your thumbs tucked in, but you will have to use the handbrake, which is a stretch when also navigating the regular brakes, gas and turning inputs. I don’t know if there’s a better way, except maybe a Ken Block-style stick jutting off the side of the pedals. At any rate, the Thrustmaster Sparco P310 is by far the best -- and most expensive (checking in at 700 smackers) -- wheel we’ve ever tested.
The worst thing you can do when a slide occurs is to panic. If you freeze behind the wheel, then there's more chance of you having an accident, but if you keep calm, you will be able to deal with any situation that occurs. The aim is to avoid an accident, but if one is unavoidable, keeping calm will allow you to deal with the situation better and reduce its severity.
Miller was named assistant treasurer in 1947, assistant controller in 1953 and corporate controller later that year.
