Kode 0 and Kode 57 Are Two Italian-Based Supercars With Sky-High Prices

The Kode 0 broke cover at last year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, as a retro-inspired supercar with modern underpinnings.

Designed by Ken Okuyama, the man behind some legendary creations such as the Ferrari Enzo, it is based on a Lamborghini Aventador, to which it adds a custom carbon fiber bodywork.

Said to tip the scales at 1,550 kg (3,417 lbs), or 25 kg (55 lbs) less than the Aventador S, the Kode 0 is powered by the same naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine as the Italian supercar that churns out 700 PS (690 hp / 515 kW) and is mated to a single-clutch, seven speed semi-auto gearbox.

The Kode 0 initially changed hands for a 7-digit figure, and now it’s being sold again. The ad posted by ClassicCarDriver reveals that the one-off supercar is still in pristine condition, and has barely been driven since it was unveiled in mid-2017, with the odometer showing just 2,200 km (1,367 miles).

The car dealership hasn’t divulged the asking price of the Kode 0, but we contacted them and found out that it costs 150 million yen ($1.34 million / €1.17 million).

The same seller is also in possession of the Kode 57, a Ferrari 599-based creation, which uses the same 6-liter V12 engine, massaged by Novitec to deliver 700 PS (690 hp / 515 kW). It’s the vehicle that preceded the Kode 0, has 21,700 km (13,484 miles) on the clock, and its condition is being described as “new”.

The asking price of the Kode 57 hasn’t been made public either, but we were informed that it’s listed for 200 million yen ($1.79 million / €1.57 million).

    A Lamborghini and a Ferrari from earth 2.

    Completely unoriginal! These 2 cars are just reconfigurations of other vehicles. It looks like the designer just took older Mercedes McLaren (sterling moss )designs, mixed with motor (v12 from the Mercedes CLK GTR), then added Italian Ferrari and Lamborghini design features them. At least he picked two of the best Mercedes cars to copy designs from.

      Fun fact. The guy who designed these two cars is also responsible for almost all Ferrari designs (created/penned) during the 21st century including his own personal supercar creation, (which you may know today as) the Ferrari Enzo.

      (… or “Enzo Ferrari” depending on who you ask).

    Ruined two perfectly good cars. Apparently, the fish heads will never learn

    • Dude

      Never learn what? How to not make cars that sell for millions? Niche slurs aside, you should really stick to TMZ if you’re going to be this stupid.

      Lol of course you’re from Alabama

    I know everyone is saying. “It looks like a Ferrari, etc”. But I just wanted to offer a new perspective. The Way Ferraris look today (modern) was for the most part really shaped during the early 21st century with vehicles like the 430 and the Enzo.
    The man who is responsible for the design of the two vehicles above, is also (nearly single handedly mind-you) responsible for the design of one of the most legendary Ferrari’s in existence.. the Enzo.

    Ken Okuyama was the Design Director for Pininfarina. As is responsible for vehicles such as the original Maserati GranTurismo, Enzo Ferrari, Ferrari Rossa Concept (which was the basis for almost all Ferrari design up until the 458 in 2011), (he also over saw the) Maserati Birdcage Concept, and much much more.

    It looks like a Ferrari, because the man who designed it, (was the man who oversaw essentially everything Ferrari made, and) was responsible for some of the most legendary ‘Italian’ vehicles of the 21st century
