This unique, dynamic display allows show-goers to ride along with a professional driver as Explorer drives through deep sand before ascending the teeter-totter ramp. Passengers will be thrilled as the vehicle's nose points to the ceiling approaching a 22 percent grade. As Explorer descends the ramp, Hill Descent Control™ adds driver control and confidence.

Focus Electric consumer test rides double as learning experience for engineers

The "Living Electric" display at the 2011 North American International Auto Show wasn't just an opportunity for visitors to ride in an electric vehicle – it also was a time for Ford engineers to learn more about the all-new Focus Electric. An onboard data acquisition system was connected to the car computer, where critical information on what was happening while the vehicle was running or charging could be transmitted. Ford engineers were then able to go online and pull up data via a website to monitor information about the vehicle at the same time customers were riding in it.

PARI DU JOUR : LE XV DE FRANCE MARQUE PLUS DE 40,5 POINTS

La France reçoit l'Ecosse pour son entrée dans le Tournoi des Six Nations. La dernière victoire du XV au Chardon en France remonte à 1999. Le XV tricolore sera donc largement favori. Depuis 4 ans, les Bleus ont systématiquement battu les Ecossais dans le Tournoi. Et si la saison dernière, la victoire avait été étriquée, elle avait été remportée à Murrayfield et constitutive d'un grand chelem.

Nous envisageons plutôt pour ce soir (18h) un scénario plus proche de l'édition 2007 du Tournoi. La France avait alors écrasé l'Ecosse 46-19 au Stade de France.

Nous parions sur une victoire avec plus de 40,5 points de la France pour une cote intéressante de 1,65. Si vous préférez jouer la sécurité, misez sur une victoire simple de la France pour une cote faible mais sûre de 1,05.


COUP SUR : MARSEILLE BAT ARLES-AVIGNON

Marseille affronte la lanterne rouge Arles-Avignon, samedi au Vélodrome (19h). La victoire de l'OM rapportera peu, mais elle ne fait aucun doute.

Un rapide coup d'oeil aux statistiques permet de s'en convaincre. En 10 déplacements cette saison, le bilan d'Arles-Avignon est de 0 victoire, 2 nuls, 8 défaites.

Vous pouvez miser gros sur ce match.


COUP DE FOLIE : L'OM S'IMPOSE 5-0

Si la victoire de l'OM ne fait aucun doute, l'ampleur du score est un enjeu. Un enjeu qui peut rapporter gros sans le moindre risque, puisque le PMU offre 20 euros pour tout pari perdant sur un score exact ! Misez 20 euros sans risque sur un score de 5-0 pour l'OM. Si votre pari est perdant pour serez remboursé, s'il est gagnant vous empocherez le jackpot : 280 euros !
