Brand New Bufori Sports Car to be Launched in 2010Race version of the soon-to-be-introduced Bufori CS to prove its qualities at the Macau GT Cup
Malaysian luxury car manufacturer BÚFORI Motor Car Company (BMCC) is extending its model range and will soon be launching a new generation of modern sportscars.
The BÚFORI CS, which stands for 'Compact Sports', is a purist and powerful 2 door coupé. Únlike previous generations of BÚFORI motorcars, the BÚFORI CS is intentionally modern-styled. Powered by a 2.0L turbo-charged engine, the sportscar will feature a lightweight composite body and offer the typical BÚFORI craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality. The BÚFORI CS is expected to be launched in Malaysia at the beginning of 2010 and more details will be revealed towards the end of the year.
The BÚFORI CS is fully designed and developed by BMCC in Malaysia. It was recently decided that BÚFORI wanted to have a race version of the car, in order to prove the vehicles capabilities and performance under extreme conditions and directly apply proven racing technology to the on going development of the road car.
This lead to the creation of the newly established BMS (BÚFORI MOTOR SPORTS), which is the motorsport division of BÚFORI. Through the collaboration wîth AXLE MOTORSPORT, a company dealing in high-tech motor racing development, BMS and AXLE MOTORSPORT jointly developed the BÚFORI BMS R1 using a team of Formula One engineers, employing only the highest quality components and materials.
The BMS AXLE RACING team will take part in the upcoming 56th Macau Grand Prix (weekend of 19th November 2009) wîth the BÚFORI BMS R1, the race edition of the all new BÚFORI CS.
'After two years of hard work in designing and developing our new sports car, the BÚFORI CS, we are very proud that a racing version of our car has been developed and will have its first public appearance at such a prestigious event as the Macau Grand Prix. We could not have wished for a better occasion. Our intention is to transfer the racing technology to the road version of the BÚFORI CS and bring in all the qualities for which BÚFORI is renowned' says Felix Haller, General Manager Marketing & Operations of BMCC.
'BMS AXLE have followed a very tight working schedule, in under 10 weeks, to create this race car, and we are lòòking forward to being a part of this racing event and making history wîth BÚFORI, the first Malaysian sportscar to run at the Macau GT Cup' says Joe Lim, the BMS Team Principal and Managing Director of Bufori Sales & Marketing (BSM), the global Distributor of Bufori vehicles. 'This race marks the beginning of a new era for BÚFORI. With the BÚFORI CS, the company is expanding its portfolio to purist, modern styled sports cars, wîth the usual uncompromised BÚFORI quality.' he adds.
BÚFORI is the first Malaysian manufacturer to participate at the Macau GT Grand Prix.
The Guia Circuit of Macau is a street circuit wîth a combination of fast straights and tight corners. It is recognised as one of the most challenging and demanding circuits in the world.
About the BÚFORI CS
The BÚFORI CS marks the beginning of a new era for BMCC.
Únlike previous BÚFORI models, the design of the BÚFORI CS is intentionally modern, boasting elegant flowing lines and subtly pronounced fenders. Four circular LED rear lights give an additional sporty dimension to the overall, timeless elegant body.
The monocoque body is made of ultra-light and rigid reinforced Carbon Fiber & Kevlar and lies on a space frame chassis.
The unequal upper and lower arm front and rear suspension wîth coil over shocks are fully adjustable and provide excellent road holding.
The BÚFORI CS is fitted wîth a front mounted 4 cylinder 2.0L turbo–charged high performance engine that delivers effortless power and offers an exhilarating driving experience.
The BÚFORI BMS R1, the race edition of the BÚFORI CS, which is homologated to FIA GT3 requirements, was jointly developed by BMS & AXLE using a team of experienced Formula One engineers, employing only the highest quality components and materials. Besides building a competitive race car, the focus was put on producing an extremely light vehicle, wîth a very favourable power to weight ratio.Source - Bufori
