In 1968 Ferrari built 612 Can Am chassis 0864 which after testing was given to Pininfarina with the new chassis n. 512S n. 27 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.
