The first thing that crossed our minds when we saw Kode9 by Ken Okuyama Design was the [Speed Racer] movie. Ken Okuyama is a well known car designer from Japan who has, in the past, headed the design team at Pininfarina. His famous works include the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati Quattroporte . Well, he also loves building special one-offs, and the Kode9 was one such concept that was showcased at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show .
The influence of Italian automotive design is evident in Ken’s work, and the Kode9 is an example of that inspiration. The exterior design of the Kode9 can be related to some classic sports car as well as modern concepts . Despite the similarities, the Kode9 sits as a uniquely different design form and a rather attractive one, to say the least. Most of the parts used have been made using modern technologies like 3D printing and carbon fiber.
