Gerry Khouri started designing and producing 3 sports cars in their garage in 1986, dividing one each for the Khouri brothers. This led to the inspiration of building their own company.
The brand name “Bufori” actually came from an acronym which stands B for Beautiful, U for Unique, F for Funtastic, O for Original, R for Romantic, and I for Irresistible.
The company is actually registered in Australia even though it’s considered an American company. Their manufacturing and production plants are done in Australia on their first years of operation but they moved to Malaysia, particularly in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur in 1998.
Their plant in Malaysia is able to produce 300 units each year and has employed over 100 skilled craftsmen building each unit by hand. They use a traditional technique of assembly consisting of 25 steps. The main body frame of a Bufori car is made out of Kevlar material and carbon fibre which makes the chassis very durable but lightweight.
All Bufori cars are made to order and can be customized if wished by the buyer.
