Fahrradi Farfalla FFX: a pedal-powered Ferrari FXX replica

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 11, 2012

Does pedaling a bicycle that looks like an exotic Ferrari sound good to you? It’s an idea that’s so ridiculous that it could actually work. Dubbed the Fahrradi Farfalla FFX, this bicycle will definitely get you noticed as you go across town very slowly. Its name is derived from the German word for bicycle, Fahrrad, and is built using light tubes and adhesive connections.

Its body uses an aluminum frame. According to the designer Johannes Langeder, this vehicle has been tested to get through real traffic. Among the benefits he pointed out are its “sonorous motor noise” and its ability to move with the “weightless elegance of a butterfly.” It has yet to be confirmed though if the Fahrradi Farfalla FFX will be built for customers. 

"The shamanic disguises that the artist likes to make use of, however, come entirely from our media world, such as when he drives his silent vehicle on famous racetracks wearing golden Rolex watches on both wrists like Burt Reynolds in The Cannonball Run. Ironically playing with roles and identities is a characteristic of Johannes Langeder's artistic practice. The high culture counterpart to the popular film figure was the role of the star conductor in a tuxedo, who began conducting the Linzer Philharmonie in 2000, an orchestra made up of a few trained musicians and many, less talented actors, from which he nevertheless demanded sophisticated achievements." said the press release.
