The Ferrari 512S Module by Pininfarina

James Glickenhaus, convinced Pininfarina 8 years ago to be videotaped while filming for the first time in decades, after buying his Ferrari 512S Modulo.

James Glickenhaus is an avid collector of vintage racing cars, especially Ferraris, owning and managing member of Scuderia Cameron Glickenhause.

If you wonder what kind of car it is, we will tell you that it is a spectacular prototype that was presented in 1970 at the Geneva Motor Show.

This Pininfarina vehicle was a competition two-seater intended for the Constructors’ World Championship. In this way it was possible to create models as radical as the Lancia Stratos HF Zero that Bertone presented that same year in Turin.

The Modulo is one of the latest gems from James Glickenhaus’s garage.

Knowing more about the Pininfarina Ferrari

This prototype featured the same 5.0-liter V12 as the Ferrari 512S. Its 5-speed manual gearbox developed 550 hp, boasting acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds.

Its maximum speed would be 350 km/hour. Imagine in cars of the time, speeds of such caliber. It was Paolo Martin who drew an almost impossible silhouette, so low that the glass roof is more of a necessity than a whim.

This peculiar design gave it the title of the strangest Ferrari of all time. For some years it was one of the most striking pieces in the Pininfarina museum. From the moment that Glichenhaus acquired it, he set out to make it functional, a fact that he achieved, although we doubt that he will be able to put its full potential to the test.
