Pininfarina’s Ferrari prototype-based Modulo concept car, the star of the 1970 Turin Motor Show, wasn’t supposed to need a key. Its racing V12 was gutted by Ferrari before the chassis landed at the design house, and so it seemed sure that the Modulo was destined to a static fate for all eternity.

But then came Jim Glickehaus and a whole lot of pain and sweat from a dedicated Italian team. Their hard work resulted in a fully functional Ferrari Modulo, which was just driven for the first time ever.

Needless to say, if you have a working Ferrari V12, you’ll need a key to fire it up as well. And why settle for a boring piece of seventies plastic, when you can in fact have a mini Modulo at the palm of your hands?

“Over a 4 year period we sourced the missing internals and Restored Modulo to full operating condition,” Glickenhaus told R&T. “As part of this we made a whimsical key cover, that can be removed, to hold the original key. This allows us to locate it in our key box which can become an issue when you have over 20 cars”

Exactly. It’s the right thing to do.
