Meet the world’s newest supercar – and it’s rarest.
It’s called the Kode 0 and it’s the creation of Ken Okuyama, the designer of iconic Ferrari Enzo, and it was unveiled over the weekend at the Monterey Car Week at Pebble Beach. And just a single example of the machine is set to be built.
Okuyama previously worked at aclaimed Italian design house Pininfarina, where he styled the Enzo, Maserati Quattroporte as well as the Ferrari Rossa and Maserati Birdcage 75th Anniversary concepts. But despite his Ferrari links the Japanese designer turned to Lamborghini for the foundation of his latest creation.
The Kode 0 is based on a Lamborghini Aventador but the body has been completely restyled by Okuyama. He has taken inspiration from the wedge-shaped Gandini designs of the 1970s, with a classic retro wedge shape.
The “one-motion” exterior design is created from carbon fibre, with the super-strong material left unpainted to emphasise the front wings and rear engine cover, creating a slashed division between the silver-painted body panels and the wedge-shaped cockpit.
