Comments Off on Austrian Designer Hannes Langwelder Creates the Fahrradi Farfalla FFX, a Pedal-Powered Ferrari

Ferrari makes some of the greatest supercars in the world, but unfortunately drivers looking for a green supercar have had to look elsewhere. Until the upcoming  Ferrari hybrid debuts, Ferrari buyers now have a new option that has all the style of a Ferrari, but also the ultimate green powertrain. The Fahrradi Farfalla FFX was created by Austrian artist Hannes Langwelder and is a followup to the Ferdinand GT3 RS that he created. What makes the Fahrradi Farfalla FFX the ultimate green supercar? Its V-12 gas engine has been swapped out with a set of pedals, meaning that this supercar is only powered by humans.
