How’s THIS for a concept car?!?
The one-of-a-kind Ferrari 512S Modulo hit the road Tuesday for its first ever ride on public pavement … nearly 50 years AFTER it was introduced.

The driver is Ferrari megafan Jim Glickenhaus. He calls it the ‘Mona Lisa’ of sports cars and believes it has a future in art museums.
The 512S Modulo debuted in 1970 as a concept car from Italian car design company Pininfarina … after it was passed on to them by Enzo Ferrari. Pininfarina sold it to Glickenhaus in 2014 and he’s been prepping it for this moment ever since.
The two-seater has a V12 engine … but there’s no power steering.
If you’re heading to Pebble Beach for this week’s U.S. Amateur Championship … look for the whip on the lawn in the Ferrari section.
