litre 4-cylinder, turbocharged
The Bufori CS is a two-door, two-seat sports coupe from the
Malaysian manufacturer Bufori. It represents the first model
in a new lineup of vehicles from the company.
Bufori have been around since 1986. Originally based in Australia
the company has been successfully producing cars like the La
Joya for many years and exporting them to markets all around
the world including Australia, Europe, USA, and the Middle East.
The CS, which stands for 'Compact Sports', marks a new styling
direction for Bufori. All their previous vehicles have had a
distinctly classic appearance, but the CS is modern in its design.
Powered by a turbocharged, 2.0 litre, four cylinder engine (no
power or torque figures yet), the CS should have decent performance
if Bufori can keep the weight down. Hopefully they can thanks
to the lightweight composite bodywork which consists of carbon
fibre and Kevlar panels. This is laid over a spaceframe
Another factor working in the CS's favor is the fact the company
is developing a racing version in order to test and develop
the vehicle under the extreme conditions only achievable through
"After two years of hard work in designing and developing
our new sports car, the BUFORI CS, we are very proud that a
racing version of our car has been developed and will have its
first public appearance at such a prestigious event as the Macau
Grand Prix. We could not have wished for a better occasion.
Our intention is to transfer the racing technology to the road
version of the BUFORI CS and bring in all the qualities for
which BUFORI is renowned" says Felix Haller, General
Manager Marketing & Operations of Bufori Motors.
The overall shape of the Bufori CS is not a million miles away
from the lines of the first generation BMW Z4 Coupe, especially
when viewed from the side. Up front Bufori have integrated their
curious moustache-like grille into the bodywork, a feature which
probably would have been better left out. But at the rear, the
quadruple round taillights and sloping tail section, coupled
with the powerful rear arches give the CS some stylistic appeal.
The Bufori CS features unequal upper and lower a-arm front and
rear suspension with fully adjustable coil over shocks.
