New Car: Ken Okuyama Kode57


Ex-Pininfarina design chief Ken Okuyama revisits familiar Ferrari themes with the Kode57

If this looks a little Ferrari-esque, then that’s surely no coincidence. The Kode57 is the work of Ken Okuyama, former design director at Pininfarina and the designer of models including the Ferrari Enzo and the Rossa concept, as well as the Maserati Quattroporte and Birdcage 75th; his credits from earlier roles at Porsche and GM include the Boxster and C5 Corvette. Now heading up his own Tokyo-based company, Okuyama runs a series of design divisions creating furniture, interiors and eyewear, as well as his Ken Okuyama Cars ‘carrozeria,’ building vehicles in very limited collectors’ editions.
