Open kinja-labs.com You’d get the Kode57 Concept. That’s right, Ken Okuyama is back. The man behind the Ferrari Enzo has taken another swipe at the whole hypercar thing, and it’s got all sorts of craziness going on. Debuting at the 2016 Quail Motorsports Gathering, the (reportedly $2.5 million) 600 horsepower V12 totally-looks-like-a-Ferrari Kode57 takes inspiration from Okuyama’s favorite year for cars—1957.
