Malaysian Automaker Bufori Reveals All-New CS Turbo Sports Car



If all goes according to plan, the latest lightweight sports car employing a turbocharged power plant will come courtesy of Malaysian automaker Bufori. Called the Bufori CS, it’s said to run with the best in the segment, touting superb performance, comfort, and craftsmanship.

The “compact sports” shape is undoubtedly modern, albeit proportioned a little mysteriously. Hidden by the carbon fiber and kevlar body panels is a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder and a lightweight spaceframe chassis. Everything has been completely designed in-house, Bufori says, and will be built in Malaysia early next year.

To quell any doubt of its legitimacy as a sports car, Bufori already has a CS racing version completed that’s set to debut at next week’s Macau Grand Prix. It’s been constructed under the stringent FIA GT3 rule book.

In addition to domestic sales, product planners hope to export the CS primarily to China, India, the Middle East, and other Asian nations. No word on if they plan on entering the U.S. market, but more information, including full specs, should be arriving shortly.

Based on the photos, what do you think, should the Bufori stay in Asia?
