1970 Ferrari 512 S Pininfarina Modulo – One-Off “UFO” Concept-Car driven by James Glickenhaus.


I still don’t believe it; I was able to see the 1970 Ferrari 512 S Pininfarina Modulo in action at the Cremona circuit during a day of testing. The car, born initially as Concept-Car, was purchased by the American collector and manufacturer James Glickenhaus in 2014. Through the collaboration with the Turin Automobile Manufacturing, was decided to make it working (before it wasn’t) and install the mechanical part of the Ferrari 512 S from 1970. The V12 engine is, therefore, the 261C type, a 5-litre and 550hp fitted in the Ferrari racing cars which run the world Sports Prototypes championship, mounted longitudinally in the central/rear part of the vehicle. Designed by Paolo Martin, at the time in force at Pininfarina, Modulo marked the design of the cars forever in the seventies. High from the ground only 93 centimetres and more than two meters wide, this “UFO” on wheels, still astounds today (let alone 50 years ago) has no doors. Driver and passenger can come inside the car by sliding forward a single piece which includes the roof and front windshield. The ingenious system has allowed to obtain a low line design and make it unique. Follow me, subscribe and don’t forget to click the Bell 🔔 to get notifications of all my latest updates.
