1970 Ferrari 512S Modulo

Updated: Nov 28, 2020

The 512S Modulo originally debuted at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show with an eye-catching body that looked like a UFO floating above the road. Fairings over the fenders partially obscured the wheels, and there were no doors. Instead, the cockpit glass slid forward in a huge, single piece. Power came from a mid-mounted 5.0-liter V12 with 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts).


According to Pininfarina, the Modulo earned 22 international design awards. After the debut in Geneva, the design house also displayed the concept at the Osaka Expo in 1970 and Mexico City in 1971.
