Can you spot what's wrong with this Ferrari?5/10/2012
For car nerds, the traditional "shakedown" (i.e. track testing) video for an upcoming model is a much-anticipated treat -- which makes this viral spoof video all the more entertaining. What initially looks to be a $1.8M, 789 hp V12-powered Ferrari FXX hypercar is in fact a Ferrari ... sorry, "Fahrradi" Farfall FFX -- in truth, nothing more than a bicycle wrapped in some very well-articulated foil. The Fahraddi FFX's creator, Hannes Langeder, once did something similar to create a faux-Porsche GT3 RS, which holds the dubious distinction for being the slowest vehicle ever around the famous Top Gear test track.
Was this video funny enough to be worth the time it took to build the car?
