After the debut of the Bufori Geneva model, this company disappeared from the field of automotive media for almost ten years. It turns out that all these years the brand worked on its own sports car, the pre-production prototype of which has already been declassified.

The Malaysian company Bufori, specializing in the production of small-scale sports cars and retrocars, introduced the first new product in ten years – the pre-production prototype Bufori CS coupe with a classic sports car layout and dimensions close to the Porsche 911. This 4.5-meter sports car received a completely independent suspension on two wishbones with adaptive shock absorbers, 19-inch wheels, as well as a body in the form of a tubular frame trimmed with carbon and Kevlar panels. For the performance of such a car meets the 3.6-liter 320-horsepower V6 engine of the FCA concern, combined with an 8-speed automatic gearbox ZF.

Also promised is a 6.4-liter V8 rated at 750 horsepower. According to the assurances of the developers, the 750-hp coupe will be able to accelerate to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. It is also expected that the curb weight of the heaviest version will not exceed 1,400 kilograms.

 Salon news from Bufori reminds Jeep and Chrysler. The Americans are buying a gearbox selector, steering wheel, dashboard, as well as a number of other smaller parts. The coupe’s list of equipment includes multimedia with a 7-inch display and comfortable Sabelt CF seats. According to foreign media reports, the serial sports car, the debut of which will be organized already at the beginning of 2020, will be very different from the prototype shown. For example, it will become more spacious thanks to the wheelbase extended by 350 mm.

Meanwhile, a mysterious prototype Buick sedan was spotted in the Death Valley American Reserve. This is probably Buick Verano, whose sales will start in China next year.
