“FAHRRADI Farfalla FFX” is designed by han-lan. This is an attempt to further develop the concept of the mimicry encasement based on muscle-driven drive technique (muscle car) in an evolutionary manner. The Fahrradi is not a copy of an existing car model, but rather the anticipation of a future top model of an actually existing automobile brand. The external form of the vehicle is the result of Internet research into various real and fictive design ideas about what this vehicle could look like, but also designer's own ideas of design and, not least of all, a substantial portion of clairvoyance.
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.
