The Ferrari 612 Modulo is a concept car designed by Paolo Martin of the Italian carozzeria Pininfarina, unveiled at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show.

In 1968 Ferrari built 612 Can Am chassis 0864 which after testing was given to Pininfarina to build a show car.

Modulo has an extremely low body with a canopy-style roof that slides forward to permit entry to the cabin. All four wheels are partly covered. Another special feature of the design are twenty-four holes in the engine cover that reveal the Ferrari V12 engine which develops 550hp, a top speed of 220mph and 0-60 in 3.1 seconds.

The Modulo is a working car, although the limitations of the bodywork prevent it being practical.
