Hilarious CAR&DRIVER coverage from 2003, when Bufori was introduced to the States.
Quote:
Dispatches From the Front
July 2003

Csere, Csaba
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From: Matras, John
Sent: April 18, 2003 9:38 AM
To: Csere, Csaba
Cc: Swan, Tony
Subject: Bufori Mk III

Csaba,

Heard tell you were at the N.Y. show. Didn't see you, but perhaps that's because you saw me first...

I do know that you missed one of the most bizarre intros ever. Imagine the good taste of a New Jersey McMansion combined with the sophistication of a sixth-grade theater presentation.

It was certainly an appropriate way to introduce the Bufori Mk III La Joya to America.

Maybe you saw these poor creations before they put the car covers over them. They were downstairs, behind the Suzuki stand, making that little sports-car concept look positively handsome, and next to the Monster Garage stand, making their exhibit look conservative.

The Buforis are Aussie “designed”—they're shrunken neoclassics with a Packard hood design—and built in Kuala Lumpur, with 2.7-liter V-6s mounted transversely amidships. Obviously yanked out of some poor front-driver, although an Asian gentleman at the Bufori stand told me it was Bufori CEO Gerry Khouri's own design. (A talented guy, this Mr. Khouri—the chassis, engine, and body design, all his own?)

Anyway, the intro, as noted, was bizarre and long. We were told repeatedly how beautiful the cars were in prose more purple than the worst bruise you've ever had. Everybody who had anything to do with the car had to give the same pathetic speech: So beautiful that once you've seen it, you have to buy it. They even managed to get the president of the New York auto dealers association, which sponsors the N.Y. show, to speak, or at least mumble something about the New York auto show never having seen anything like this before. Durn tootin', Mark.

After they finally pulled the covers off the cars, they announced a Q&A session. Great, I had some questions, because the handful of journalists there (only three of which, including me, I recognized) had been fed a lot of gravy with very little meat.

The questions, however, were asked by the lovely Elizabeth, reading from 3x5 cards, and answered by the same folks who had just been droning on about the Bufori. At least one of the questions provided some excitement. How strong is the Bufori? This strong, said one of the droners, as he jumped up and down on the hood. I think I saw something like that at a Saturn press event.

The talking ended with a quote from Barnum, something about imagination. Funny, the only Barnum quote I know is the one about a sucker being born every minute.

I went inside the wrought iron fence that surrounded the AstroTurfed stand—did I mention the stage-prop classical columns?—for a closer look, being careful not to touch anything. One never knows . . . I grabbed a brochure and fled, having done my journalistic duty.

Still, in retrospect, the only thing this presentation—and its subject—missed was the warning “Don't try this at home, kids.”

Later,
John M.

It looks really good. I'd get it in a two-colour option though. One solid colour doesn't look as good. Cheers once again, McLareN

I saw my first Bufori around 1990, they were the pace cars for the Bathurst 12-Hour. The initial Madison Roadsters had similar looks to current models and were Commodore V6 powered. Styling is subjective but what set Bufori apart was not just the superb workmanship - absolutely outstanding by all accounts - and solid high-quality engineering but that almost everything except basic powertrain was constructed in-house, from chassis to steering wheel, by the Khouri father/sons who are Lebanese-Australians from a modest suburb of Sydney. There was an ABC television docco on them about 10 years ago, you couldn't help but be impressed by their can-do talent & commitment

I hadn't heard much from Bufori for quite a while, its good to know they're still hard at it
