The Guy Who Designed The Ferrari Enzo Reveals His Latest, The Kode57

Has Floyd Mayweather already placed an order?

Ken Okuyama is a Japanese designer who once worked for Pininfarina, where he was in charge of designing the Ferrari Enzo as well as the Maserati Quattroporte, among several other creations. Today he has his own design studio, Ken Okuyama Cars, and he's still very much designing exotic cars and influencing the industry in general. Introducing the outright bonkers Kode57. Look closely and you’ll see many styling traces of the Enzo, except this thing is a roadster.

Oh, and check out those wild reverse-opening doors. Power comes from a V12 with around 600 hp that’s mounted behind the front axle. It also has custom suspension tuning by Novitec Rosso.

The name is a tribute to the year 1957. Think Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa and Jaguar XKSS, both of which also helped to inspire the Kode57’s unique design, namely the narrow windscreen and open top. So, is the Kode57 a concept or a limited production supercar reserved for only the wealthiest buyers? We don’t have a confirmed answer just yet but rumor has it, according to TMZ, that boxer Floyd Mayweather has already placed an order for the first Kode57 at a cost of $2.5 million.
