Red Bufori Geneva Angle View 2011

Malaysian-based Bufori Motor Car Company today unveiled its most eagerly-awaited model at the Geneva International Motor Show. The luxury saloon, previously codenamed 'Bufori MKVI’, now has an official name: the Geneva.
“We have decided to name this new Bufori model after the city it was launched in as this occasion marks an important milestone in our company history. We also wanted to pay tribute to the 80th edition of this fantastic motor show and the beautiful city of Geneva,” said the company’s Chairman and Co-Founder, Anthony Khouri.
The Geneva is said to combine 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.
The semi-monocoque body is made of hybrid carbonfibre and kevlar infused with Vinylester resin. This stronger-than-steel innovation is said to provide supreme strength, lightweight and superior structural integrity as well as a lifetime of minimum maintenance. It 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, for instance, is made using top grade stainless steel, protecting it against corrosion. Each Geneva goes through 24 production stages and requires more than 6,000 man-hours to create.
Modern electronics aids like ABS, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, Traction Control, Steering Angle Control and Adaptive Cruise Control are all available to enhance safety. Also available as options are a Thermal Imaging Night Vision camera, Lane Departure Warning System, Heads-up Display and Active Cruise Control. Needless to say, airbags are installed (six in total).
The interior design team has strived to create a relaxing ambience, combining traditional and modern materials such as leather and wood veneers.  The spacious cabin is filled with natural light, enhanced by the optional sunroof and complemented by the integrated mood lighting. Individual fully adjustable rear lounge seating is offered as the standard configuration, with beautifully incorporated picnic tables for comfort and convenience. The rear centre 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. A state-of-the-art and comprehensive multimedia system is also available.
Production is scheduled to start in June 2011 with the first units delivered before year end. Like all Bufori vehicles, the Geneva will undergo the world’s most stringent certification procedures and successively be made available in key markets in Europe, Asia, Middle East and eventually North America. According to Bufori’s GM, Felix Haller, the price of the new model is not confirmed but as each unit will be customised according to the customer’s requirements, there will probably not be a 'typical’ price.
