In an ordinary car (no rockets :smile: ) the only force available to accelerate the car is friction; that friction will accelerate the car both tangentially and centripetally. But Andrew gave an example of a rocket-powered car where the rocket provides the tangential force, leaving friction to handle the centripetal force.
