Ken Okuyama is famous for designing the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati Quattroporte while working for Pininfarina.
Now, having branched out on his own with a headquarters based in Japan, he has designed a one-off supercar called the Kode 0, which follows on from the Kode 57 unveiled in 2016 – another bespoke supercar that developed a staggering 700bhp, cost more than $2.5 million and had a production run of just five cars.
That car was based on a Ferrari 599 and used the same V12 engine. And although not a lot of detail is known about the new Kode 0, it is set to feature a fully fledged V12 engine with a carbon-fibre monocoque.
The styling will be just as sharp and angular as the previous car was with lots of edgy detailing across the front in particular. It has supercar styling with an appearance similar to that of the Lamborghini Gallardo.
Other Kode 0 styling cues include vents running along each side towards the engine bay – located at the rear, angled headlights at the front and a nose that sits tight towards the ground.
The car will be revealed at the Quail event in California on August 18 before it is displayed again at the Concorso Italiano in Monterey on August 19.
The Kode 57 will be displayed for a second year at the Quail event in Pebble Beach alongside the Kode 0.
