However, ABS isn't an impenetrable safety net. It's not an excuse to drive into hazards more quickly, and doesn't mean you can drive closer to the vehicle in front - yes it does help to reduce braking distances, but you should maintain distance so you don't need to put the ABS to use. Plus, on slippery surfaces, bear in mind that ABS doesn’t work as well – and on sheet ice, nothing will stop you except crashing into the kerbside or another object. Safe speed is the key for winter driving.
Tesla has introduced a Chill Mode for its Model S and Model X electric vehicles, toning down the rapid acceleration that its EV’s are capable of.
The Opel Karl/Vauxhall Viva minicar, a sister model to the Chevrolet Spark, is built by GM Korea.
"Somebody stopped by the farm with an old Model T, a junker, and just left it in our yard," Miller told Hemmings Classic Car in 2007. "I gave him 10 dollars and took it all apart to see how it worked."
Miller had spotted a Life magazine article about Henry Ford II’s search for fresh executive talent to help oversee the company, which had racked up losses for 15 straight years and was reportedly losing a million dollars a day at the time.
Seat first confirmed it would be adding a large SUV to its range in March, but 2015's 20V20 concept car showed the company's ambitions for such a car.
Drivers can almost create their own ABS in a car that doesn’t have it fitted by using the cadence method mentioned above. If you find yourself travelling too quickly in wet or slippery conditions and try to stop suddenly, the wheels are likely to lock up and the car could start to skid.
What’s more, while 1451 GT made it to the race, its driver and owner at the time (a Mr Bob Grossman), recalled that the exterior had but a ‘flash’ of paint covering the primer, and that there were ‘rags’ covering the unfinished seats. Quite different, in other words, from the car which has since been professionally restored not once, but twice, and also granted Ferrari Classiche certification.
