Last year it was the Lancia Stratos Zero that caught my attention but in this 2019 edition there was James Glickenhaus with the 1970 Ferrari Modulo, based on the Ferrari 512 S race car and designed by Paolo Martin of Pininfarina.

The Ferrari 512S Modulo is a concept sports car designed by Paolo Martin of the Italian carozzeria Pininfarina, unveiled at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show.The Modulo has an extremely low and wedge-shaped body, with a canopy-style glass 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)[1] to propel the Modulo to a top speed of 220 mph (354 km/h)[citation needed] and from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.1 seconds.
