August 20, 2023

The Birdcage kode61 concept by KEN OKUYAMA CARS is a refined version of the original Birdcage 75th concept. The kode61 is a handmade limited production model with a purer sports mind and futuristic taste.

KEN OKUYAMA CARS has developed, manufactured, and sold four original handmade sports car models since 2007. It is the only carrozzeria in Japan that produces only small-lot sports cars for road use.

The Birdcage kode61 goes back to the basic concept of the Maserati Birdcage and uses a conventional FR-transaxle layout. The delicate steel pipe frame, which is the reason for the Birdcage’s existence, is utilized as the basic structure and design theme, and the advanced CFRP body panels are combined for high rigidity and light weight.

The center panel, which symmetrically divides the left and right, is a major feature of the kode61. In addition to being a sporty and functional solution, the kode61’s cabin is a further evolution of the twin cockpit, the independent driver and passenger layout that is a hallmark of KEN OKUYAMA CARS. The spine structure, which incorporates a strong frame inside the center panel, is an iconic theme of the Birdcage kode61 and contributes greatly to the reinforcement of its body rigidity.
