Enzo designer leaves Pininfarina
14 September 2006

The designer of the Ferrari Enzo, Ken Okuyama, has parted company with Pininfarina, where he has been director of design since July 2005.

Okuyama is arguably one of the most influential car designers of the past decade - he has worked for GM and Porsche, and is a professor at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

As well as the Enzo, Okuyama's work at Pininfarina includes the Ferrari 599, plus many less glamorous designs for Alfa Romeo, Honda, Mitsubishi and Peugeot.

Pininfarina says that the designer's departure "comes as a result of the various external activities Ken Okuyama was carrying out beyond his responsibilities within Pininfarina."

Pininfarina chairman and CEO Andrea Pininfarina will act as director of design until a replacement is found.
