The Bufori Motor Car Company is an automaker that hand builds cars inspired by American 1930s coupes. The company was founded by three Australian brothers in the mid 1980s. The Khouri brothers first started building cars in a garage and later on the company was formed. Originally, all company operations were conducted in Australia but since 1998, all production and operations moved to a suburb in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In 2010, Bufori showcased a four-door luxury saloon at the Geneva Motor Show and was aptly named the Bufori Geneva. In the two years since the Geneva’s public debut, the company has fine-tuned the car and also opened a dealership in Shanghai, China. Although it is pretty much the same car shown around two years earlier, this time round it is more of the company’s commitment to the Chinese luxury car market.
Under the hood, the engine is a 6.4 litre Hemi V8 engine sourced from Chrysler which is rated at around 470hp and 629Nm of torque. This enables the 2.4 tonne car to complete the century sprint in less than six seconds and with a top speed of 280km/h. Customers who prefer some extra power could opt for a supercharged engine. The V8 engine is mated to an automated sequential transmission which is the only available option and all that power is transferred to the rear wheels.
Dspite the retro looks, the car is equipped with many modern driving aids and equipped with picnic tables built into the back of the front seats, a fully comprehensive multimedia system and suicide doors.
To make the Geneva more exclusive and appealing to its customers, Bufori has explained that they can build the car with a fine tea set with instant boiling water and sink, an espresso coffee maker and even an ice box. Other luxury features such as a mini bar, a strong box for valuables and a cigar humidor is also available.
Pricing for the Bufori Geneva is not available yet but every Bufori car is made to order and can be customised according to customers’ preference.
