(from Bufori Press
Release) The BUFORI Luxury Saloon
A more contemporary interpretation
of the BUFORI philosophy
The BUFORI Geneva
combines cutting-edge technology with a beautifully proportioned
body that exudes presence and style.
Featuring classic design elements such as the long running boards,
the new luxury saloon also boasts noticeably modern styling cues
such as elegantly integrated bi-xenon headlamps and LED rear lights.
Appealing to all senses, every material used in the Luxury Saloon is
carefully selected to combine function with form.
The Bufori Geneva is a sublime choice for the style-conscious
individual and is powered by a thoroughbred 6.1-litre V8 engine,
producing an impressive 430hp and 586Nm of torque. Graceful, fast
and comfortable, the Bufori Geneva is both a driver and master's car
and provides an exceptional experience for all.
The interior design team
has strived to create a relaxing ambience, combining traditional and
modern materials such as leather and wood veneers.
The Bufori Geneva's classical rear-hinged coach doors provide
elegant and effortless ingress and egress.
The interior space is filled with natural light, enhanced by the
optional Sunroof and complemented by the integrated mood lighting.
Compartments are all lightly illuminated for convenience.
Individual fully adjustable rear lounge seating is offered as the
standard configuration, with beautifully incorporated picnic tables
for comfort and convenience.
The rear center console is entirely customized to the requirements
of the discerning owner. Some of the unique features include a fine
tea set with instant boiling water and sink, an Espresso coffee
maker or even an ice box. An integrated cool box & mini bar for
champagne and glasses, a strong box (safe) for valuables or a cigar
humidor are also available.
A state-of-the-art and comprehensive multimedia system provides
high-definition surround sound and a choice of 1, 2 or 3 touch
Anti Lock Braking
System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, Traction
Control, Steering Angle Control and Adaptive Cruise Control are
incorporated to provide a more enjoyable and safe drive.
The optional driver assistance systems and technologies in the
Bufori Geneva are discretely packaged and easy to operate.
Positioned within the front bumper bar is an optional Thermal
Imaging Night Vision camera. When activated, day or night, this
safety feature recognises pedestrians and objects up to 300 metres
away and displays them on the screen conveniently positioned in view
of the driver.
Lane Departure Warning (LDWS) alerts the driver should the car
unintentionally attempt to leave its current lane. When activated,
it uses an integrated camera, located just in front of the rear view
mirror, to monitor road markings and the vehicle's position. When
the signal light is used the system recognises the lane change as
intentional and no warning is issued.
The HUD (Heads-up Display) relays essential information such as
vehicle speed, RPM, LDWS onto the windscreen to allow the driver to
focus on the road.
Active Cruise Control creates a relaxing driving experience,
particularly on long cruising journeys, as action is not required
when a vehicle ahead speeds up or slows down.
Safety is one of
BUFORI's top priorities.
To compliment the driver aids and energy absorbing hybrid Carbon
Fibre & Kevlar body, the SRS (Supplement Restraint System) not only
includes pre-tensioned seat belts, but also dual front air bags,
side air bags and side curtain airbags.
Power Train & Handling
The BUFORI GENEVA is
powered by a 6.1Lt V8 engine with hemispherical combustion chambers
and produces a generous 430hp and 569Nm of torque.
A hemispherical combustion chamber allows the valves to be angled
rather than side-by-side. This feature significantly improves the
engine's airflow capacity, which results in high power output.
Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via an adaptive automatic
transmission and limited slip differential.
Acceleration from 0-100 kph is under 6 seconds with a top speed of
more than 260kph (estimated figures).
An optional supercharger boosts the performance of the engine to a
healthy 560hp and 690Nm of torque.
The unequal arm front suspension and multilink rear suspension
sprung with a fully programmable and adjustable airbag suspension
provide comfort and performance.
Engineered to last for generations
The semi-monocoque body
of the Bufori Geneva is made of state-of-the-art Hybrid Carbon Fibre
and Kevlar which is infused with Vinylester resin. This
stronger-than-steel innovation provides supreme strength,
light-weight and superior structural integrity as well as a lifetime
of minimum maintenance. The Bufori Geneva is the first saloon in the
world to commercially use such innovative materials.
The combined usage of the highest quality materials and components
increases the overall durability of the car, which is literally
built to last for generations. The chassis of the Bufori Geneva for
instance is made using top grade stainless steel, protecting it
BUFORI's most valuable
asset is its highly-skilled craftsmen. Each BUFORI vehicle is a
masterpiece in its own right. Passionately crafted and assembled
with the utmost care and precision.
The in-house R&D and manufacturing facility in Kuala Lumpur/Malaysia
employs a mix of old & new school craftsmen who master traditional
as well as modern coach building techniques.
Each BUFORI Geneva moves through 24 production stages and requires
more than 6,000 man hours to create.
From infusing the hybrid composite material body to making the
Stainless steel chassis, brackets, exhaust, fuel tank and bright
work; from moulding the foam for the seats and thermal & acoustic
insulating materials to hand-stitching the leather; from painting
the car, to making the wiring harnesses and tuning the suspension;
every single process is executed to perfection.
An example of some of the qualities Bufori looks for when sourcing
raw materials is the superior leather. The strict selection and
homogenous tanning of the flawless Alp-cow hides provide durability
and easy maintenance.
Fine quality carpet is particularly chosen for its consistent
density and colour fastness, as well as fire resistance. The same
care goes into choosing paints, composite materials such as the high
tech Carbon Fibre & Kevlar hybrid material and top grade stainless
steel for all the metal parts such as the chassis and the bright
