Fahrradi Farfalla FFX is a pedal-powered supercar

Andrea Divirgilio / May 11, 2012

Over the times, we have shown you examples of some of the finest and the most expensive cars developed by the world’s distinguished automakers. Also, we have seen some of the crazy and artistic creations like the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing made entirely out of wood and the Ghost 1939 Pontiac Plexiglas Deluxe which is America’s only transparent car. But, the exceptional car like the one we are here talking about, the Fahrradi Farfalla FFX have just found herself a different place in an all-together unique category, for being stunningly and practically different from standard cars. Masterly disguised to look-alike an exotic Ferrari, the Fahrradi Farfalla FFX is actually a bicycle that gets its horsepower from the driver’s legs. However, we have also earlier seen the pedal go-kart version of the Ferrari FFX for the budding kid racers.

Fahrradi Farfall FFX

It may look like a Ferrari FFX, which is one of the fastest cars that comes packed with some incredible 789hp under the hood, but this example only packs 1 human-power to get you around the town in style, that too slowly at the meager speed of 10 mph. Christened Fahrradi Farfalla FFX, the name comes from the German word for bicycle, which is ‘fahrrad’ and the ‘farfalla’ which is the Italian phrase for butterfly.

Developed by the master designer Johannes Langeder, who is known for sending his vehicles into real traffic, that moves silently and with weightless elegance instead of making motor noise, the Fahrradi Farfalla FFX has been constructed masterfully from the ultra light tubes and strong adhesive connections. Its low-slung profile body houses a strong aluminum frame which allows the rider to pedal through the road traffic.

This two-seater supercar-style bicycle comes equipped with 11 gear operating mechanism that powers the bespoke slim wheels via pedals of-course. Further, it comes complete with gullwing doors, and aerodynamics and Ferrari-like headlights holding 200 LEDs that replicates the looks of the high-end supercar.

This eco-friendly clone version of the supercar is custom-made and boasts the smoothest red finish that matches the Ferrari’s FFX. Undoubtedly, it’s paying its due homage to the car it imitates, but it is certainly not an affordable mode of transport, as the enthusiastic buyer has to splash out a total of $1.9 million.
