The car was officially presented by Bufori Motor Car Company's Founders, Mr. Anthony Khouri, George Khouri and Gerry Khouri at a press conference during the prestigious Swiss Motor Show. At the same occasion, the Luxury Saloon, which was previously code name Bufori MKVI, was officially named "Bufori 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, says Chairman and Co-Founder, Anthony Khouri".

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 screen monitors.

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 against corrosion.

The car is powered by a 6.1Lt V8 engine with hemispherical cylinders 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.

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 inception, every Bufori is "Tailor Made" and personalised for its discerning owner. Body colours, which can be chosen in single or two tone combinations, are truly limited by imagination. The choice of Interior trim materials, colour combinations, leather textures and types of perforations, types of veneer, colours and finishing, inlays etc is literally endless.

Creature comforts such as fine tea sets, Espresso Coffee machines, ice boxes, cool boxes, cigar humidors, strong boxes, mood lighting and more are all available on request. Personalisation such as holograms, signatures, names, badges, embroidery, etc. can all be incorporated in the body paint, interior trim, veneer, stainless steel scuff plates

The production is scheduled to start in June 2010 with the first units delivered before year end.
