…Gazeta Mercantil doesn’t like the dollar?

Gazeta Mercantil Dollar

Gazeta Mercantil created a fantastic series of arted out bills for ads about their financial coverage titled “Understand the real value of money”.

The Dollar, Yen, and Euro were all featured, and each included powerful reminders of the host country’s history, and what went into the creation of each currency.

…The Coke Zero Game looks fantastic?

The Coke Zero Game

As part of the UEFA’s Euro 2008 Football Championships, North Kingdom put together a game for Coke called The Coke Zero Game that it says is one of its biggest projects ever.

Unfortunately, it’s currently only available in German, but with hot babes, flying cars, and plenty of fire and mayhem in the mix, it’s sure to be a blast when it launches stateside.

Until then, check out the North Kingdom site for a countdown timer, plus plenty of previews to tease you along for the ride.

…Gisele Bundchen doesn’t like the dollar?

Gisele Bundchen

In what is surely a sign of the times, Gisele Bundchen has reportedly refused to accept US dollars as payment for her work, due to their declining value.

Instead, she’s accepting only Euros, though if she’d like to model for DYH, I’d surely pay her in gold doubloon if that would make her happy.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: MTM BiMoto?

MTM BiMoto

Take your Audi TT, put an extra engine in the trunk, and what do you get?

244.2 MPH of crazy good fun, that’s what.

MTM demoed the power of their TT BiMoto beast by top speeding it at the Papenburg test track in Germany, and you don’t need to speak German to know that nearly 250 MPH is nearly too fast. Plus, it was done “under windy conditions, partial rain, and temperatures of around 20 degrees centigrade” to keep things interesting.

To reach those plane worthy speeds, the BiMoto relied on two 1.8 liter inline fours, two DSG gearboxes, and longer gear ratios (though the stock BiMoto will still do 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds).

600,000 euros buys you your own 740 HP monster, but how can you put a price on insanity?
