Fahrradi Farfalla FFX is the World's Slowest Ferrari inspired Bike

Another substantial difference to the predecessor model is a built-in butterfly mechanism. An angle gear attached to the rear axle moves the wing doors while driving, resulting in a wing beat similar to that of a butterfly (Farfalla in Italian). This ensures that it is possible to lift off slightly from the ground at all times (= anti-gravitation). An even better ventilation of the interior is a side effect.
The next innovative step was the attempt to further constrain the already extreme slowness of the predecessor Ferdinand through an even greater transmission ratio. This makes the Fahrradi a serious rival for pedestrians in street traffic as well. By (Austrian) law, the Fahrradi can be driven at any time on public streets. Night-time use is ensured by a modern lighting system based on approximately 200 ultra-bright LEDs. [Credits: Photoes by Erich Goldmann, Images from Ion Camborrado's flickr album]
