Ken Okuyama’s Kode 0 Is A Wedge-Shaped Lamborghini Aventador

Ken Okuyama has unveiled his new Kode 0 at The Quail Motorsports Gathering.

Billed as a follow up to the Kode 57, the Kode 0 is a retro-inspired supercar which was envisioned to capture the spirit of automotive design in the 1970’s. In particular, the car pays tribute to Marcello Gandini who penned classics such as the Lancia Stratos Zero, Lamborghini Countach, and Ferrari Moduro.

Based on the Lamborghini Aventador, the model features a “one motion” design that gives the car a wedge-shaped appearance. The vehicle also has a front splitter, LED headlights and 20- / 21-inch forged alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tires. The unique styling continues at the rear as the Kode 0 has been equipped with a triangular-shaped quadruple exhaust system which is flanked by a massive diffuser.

The car’s distinctive carbon fiber body work combines Lamborghini’s carbon fiber monocoque chassis to create a relatively lightweight supercar. Okuyama says the model weighs 1,550 kg (3,417 lbs) which means it is lighter than the base vehicle.

Power is provided by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine that develops 700 PS (515 kW) and 690 Nm (507 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed ISR transmission which enables the standard Aventador to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds.

    Meh, although I think its kind of cool, its just a mix of old lotus and old lambo design. I think Ken Okuyama should focus on designing and build his own car, a completely unique design instead of ripping off elements from other designers hard work.

    The Aventador is nicer as it is. Not a fan of this guy’s work at all. Sorta ruined a beautiful machine to me. Even his personal style of dress (yes thats a thing with all designers) is as dull as his car.

    To me, this belongs in the “just-because-you-can-do-it-doesn’t-mean-you-have-to” category.

    Makes one wonder if this could have been the Vector had the Vector brand survived.

    This guy should be shot for crimes against my eyes. He’s ruined a perfectly good Lambo with the rear of an LFA, and made cool scissor doors look useless.

    Lamborghini played it safe and boring with the Huracan.

    The angular rear of this is the big brother the Gallardo deserved.

    The front is a nice nod to a few classics. Let’s leave it at that.

    But that profile and rear!

    Reminds me of the “Pink Panther” car Dean Jefferies designed in the 1960’s.

    That was a stupid looking car too.

    Lexus LF-A rear design cues, indeed.

    $1.5 million after you buy your own Aventador, how does one justify the cost?

    “This guy”? Ken Okuyama is a well known designer, responsible for such cars as the Ferraris Rossa, Enzo and 599, the Maserati Birdcage 75th or the Porsche Boxster. More respect, please
