Pininfarina’s 50-Year-Old Modulo Design

“Pininfarina has built 90 years of innovation”, company CEO Silvio Angori said in a statement. “The symbol of this journey is the Modulo, still considered, half a century later to be an icon of motor racing due to a revolutionary design that makes it look like a car from the future. As designers we are always called on to anticipate tomorrow on the basis of our dreams and to interpret technology in an emotional way. This will continue to be our mission, even when we reach 100.” More here.

How on earth could this have been designed in the 1970’s. It still looks fantastic!
