Before being purchased by the Navy, the ship briefly served as United States Army transport ship '''USAT ''Havana''''' and was in the first U.S. convoy of ships to sail for France during World War I. In her Navy career, ''Comfort'' made three transatlantic voyages, bringing home over 1,100 men from European ports.

The United States Government refused to allow him to take up this posting because they wanted to negotiate this issue with their own special mission to the Vatican under William Howard Taft.

Cities ''Driver 2'' includes four cities which are notably larger than the original game. The cities are Chicago (Chicago, Illinois) and Havana, which are both immediately open for 'TAKE A RIDE' mode, Las Vegas (Las Vegas, Nevada), which can only be accessed once missions are complete for the first two cities, and Rio de Janeiro, only accessible after completing the Las Vegas missions. The cities all have secret cars hidden within them, which become available once the player finds the buttons to unlock the entries to where the cars are located and then approaches the cars to unlock them. The cities include many of their respective landmarks, such as the Navy Pier and Wrigley Field in Chicago, the Havana's Plaza de la Revolución and El Capitolio, recreations of the hotels on the Las Vegas Strip, and the Corcovado (Corcovado (Brazil)), Christ the Redeemer (Christ the Redeemer (statue)) and some other known landmarks of Rio. Although the Seven Years' War had broken out in 1756, Spain had managed to remain strictly neutral under the ministry of Ricardo Wall, who continued to lead Spain's government in the early years of Charles III. Charles, however, bore a grudge against the English and as the war became increasingly desperate for France, he went against his chief minister's wishes and intervened on France's behalf in 1762. Spain fared poorly in the war, and the British occupied Havana and Manila within a year. Florida was ceded to the British and Spain recognized British control over Minorca and Gibraltar in 1763, although Louisiana was given to Spain to compensate her for her losses. After the Treaty of Paris (1763), however, Spain could focus on internal development. thumb right 250px Alejandro Aguado, Marquis of the Guadalquivir Marshes (Image:Aguado, Alexandre.jpg) '''Don (Don (honorific)) Alejandro María Aguado y Ramírez de Estenoz, 1st Marquis of the Guadalquivir Marshes''' (Seville, June 29, 1784 – Gijon, April 14, 1842), Spanish (Spain) banker, was born of Old Christian parentage, originally from La Rioja, at Seville.
