Road & Track magazine has revealed that James Glickenhaus sent them a note saying, “Against long odds I’ve gotten Pininfarina to sell me Modulo, which we will awaken and make roadworthy as we did with Dino Competizione.”
Exclusive: Ferrari Modulo Design Story
Glickenhuas already owns another dream car of the past, the Ferrari Dino Berlinetta Competizione, that like the Modulo was designed by Paolo Martin at Pininfarina. This one-off was also modified for being used on public roads.
The Modulo was originally designed in 1968 by Paolo Martin and was publicly unveiled only two years later, at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show.
Thanks to the unique design and proportions, it rapidly became very popular and an icon of car design.
Powered by a 5 liter V12 engine, the Modulo is 4.48 meters long, 2.04 meters wide and has a height of just 0.93 meters.
