…Ecko Manufacturing hires hot girls?

Ecko Manufacturing

Ecko Manufacturing doesn’t look like any sweatshop that I’ve ever seen.

Apparently, after deciding that subtlety was just not their strong suit, Ecko Manufacturing decided to launch a viral ad campaign with the tagline of “Hot Girls Make Great Clothes”.

Whether or not that’s true is still up for debate, but there’s no debating the fact that a factory filled with hot girls is definitely one way to get people to browse through your catalog.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Gemballa Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R?

Gemballa Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R

Gemballa is known to tune a Porsche into something else entirely, but their Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R (aka a 911 Turbo on steroids) raises the bar even further than their usual.

How much further?

850 HP and 690 ft-lbs of torque further, thanks to the pair of Garret T035 turbos strapped onto the enlarged 3.8L engine. GT3-R heads, a machined crank and new connecting rods also help.

It wouldn’t be a Gemballa though if they decided to leave the exterior alone, so they transformed the usually sleek and svelte 911 body into a menacing monster; with new rear fenders complete with larger air intakes covering the rear wheels, a new lower front fascia to add extra grill, a vented hood to let some of the air out, GT headlights, a dual-wing rear spoiler, 19-inch alloys, and a rear apron to cover the four new exhaust tips.

In case you didn’t quite get the message the first time, Gemballa would like to remind you: Subtlety is overrated.

…The Hint Ring sends a message?

Hint Ring

If your significant other just doesn’t seem to get it, or if subtlety just isn’t your thing, then the Hint Ring might be the perfect way to get your message heard.

For guys, it’s the perfect placeholder while you’re looking for something bigger and better, and for girls, it’s the perfect way to say “I’m ready, and given the chance, I do.”
