Following the same idea as the pedal-powered Porsche, Austrian-based artist Hannes Langeder has now built the Fahrradi Farfall FFX, a pedal-powered Ferrari-look-alike that tops at speeds of 16Km/h and costs almost as much as the original.
The high-performance supercar clone is custom-made and comes with the smooth, red finish that matches the Ferrari FXX. The Fahrradi Farfall FFX also happens to be the world's most expensive bicycle with a price tag of a stunning £1 million.
The vehicle features over 200 ultra-bright LED lights which allow it to be driven at night as well which makes it road legal in Austria. Thanks to a steel chassis and a plastic tubed body, the lightweight vehicle still weighs around 100kg. At the moment, the Fahrradi Farfall FFX is on display as part of an automotive exhibition at Linz, Austria-based LENTOS Museum of Art.
