A two-seat open top Fantom.

Fantom is a Swedish velomobile with four wheels, two in the front and two in the rear. It has no front suspension, but has suspension in the rear.

Fantom was never sold as a finished product. Instead it was sold as a set of drawings. The drawings are not exact and should be used as a guide. Hobbex bought the rights to the drawings and have sold it continuously since the 1940s apart from a short break in the 1990s. Over 100,000 copies of the drawing were sold[1], but only ten documented builds were finished.[1] The drawings had no measurements, and if you would follow the blueprints, you would not be able to open the door.[1]

In the 1980s the Fantom was rediscovered by Carl-Georg Rasmussen who built a redesigned version[citation needed] called Leitra.
