K.O. Cars Knock Out My Heart
My oh my Autoblog has found some sexy eye candy at the Geneva Auto Show in the form of the new cars from Ken Okuyama, the former Pininfarina designer who worked on the delicious Ferrari Enzo and the Maserati Quattroporte. The K.O. 7 and 8 are sleek cars made from carbon fiber and stamped aluminium. They are mean to be light and fast. The production model of the K.O. 7 should weigh in at around 1,650 pounds (without the optional roof). The K.O. 8 EV model is powered by a three-phase electric motor and has a 18 Kwh lithium ion battery pack for a range of around 100 miles per charge. There will be 99 K.O. 7's available when production begins later this year and they will be sold in Japan only for around $150,000.
