    Some 60's concept, pretty radical and amazing. I'm guessing it's in Maranello at the museum?

    Pininfarina Modulo.

    Executed as a concept car to demonstrate improved space utilization in a car could reduce production costs, e.g. making the upper and lower halves of the car identical.

    The Summer 1971 Automobile Quarterly covered the Modulo in an article

    Note the highly conceptualized name on the last page, made of dots and vertical bars only. The thumbnail shows you what it says.

    The Modulo showcar was built on a 512 S sports racer chassis, 1046. As far as I know it is still owned by Pininfarina.

    Yup, still is in the Pininfarina museum in Turin.

    Probably half the power's engine would have been required to run the A/C to cool this rolling green house.
