The Modulo has an extremely low body with a canopy-style roof that slides forward to permit entry to the cabin of the car. All four wheels are partly covered. Another special feature of the design are 24 holes in the engine cover that reveal the Ferrari V12 engine which develops 550 hp (410 kW), a top speed of 220 mph (350 km/h) and 0–60 in 3.1 seconds.
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.
In 2014, Pininfarina sold Modulo to American entrepreneur and automotive aficionado James Glickenhaus who is restoring it to full operating condition.
