The Ferrari FXX was once the fastest car to (illegally) lap our test track. The Ferdinand Ferdinand GT3 RS is the slowest car to lap our test track. So what happens if the two engage in a bit of cross-fertilisation? Well, this… The Fahrradi Farfall FFX.
It may look like Ferrari’s V12, Enzo-based hypercar, but it’s actually a bicycle cocooned with some well-placed tin foil. It’s the idea of Austrian bicyclist, Hannes Langeder, the very man who built the lightest of lightweight GT3 RS that Hammond cycled around our test track.
This one took him a year to build and has notable improvements, such as gullwing doors that flap when the car/bike is being pedaled. Langeder believes that it’s actually possible for the FFX to “lift off slightly from the ground”. Yes, you read that right. This car has the potential to fly.
We posted #45 yesterday and here’s #44 in the Top Gear Top 40 Countdown: James May races a Fiat 500 against BMX bikers through the streets of Budapest.
On Monday, November 28th at 8pm/7c, BBC America will air the first of two Top Gear specials: the Top Gear Top 40 Challenges as chosen by you, your neighbors, and that guy Ray from Accounting. Until then, check out #45-#41 here on teh Tumblrs.
