Default 2010 Bufori Geneva

Somewhere on the borderline of small scale production and concept car, this weird luxury monstrosity sees the daylight:



Gallery here: http://www.autobild.de/artikel/bufor...0_1128261.html

Technically Chrysler related, with a 6.1l ENgine w. 436hp (a supercharged 570hp version is optional), 0-100km/h in less than 6 seconds, and officially 275km/h top speed, though I kind of doubt that last claim given the aero dynamics...

Apparently, a lot of equipemnt is standard, also some tech gadegts (rare in these cars built by such a small manufacturer) as ESP, Bi-Xenon headlights, night vision, but also things like an Espresso machine are available...

Didn't they say it will be the most luxurious car on the road? Doesn't look like it, looks like an Excalibur with chrysler interior.

Pretty outrageous, and retains that Bufori oddness, but, that's all part of it's unique character. It appears Chrysler-based, and, I wonder if this will be produced, and reach the USDM; it appears production-ready. This sort of reminds me of the Imperial concept of a couple of years ago, and also a proposal for a reborn Packard, which goes back some 10 years, and it never seemed to take off.

This must be what it feels like to have white-hot needles stabbed into your retinas. I'm literally sobbing at the sight of this car.

Oh man they DID use the Chrysler interior! I mean if you were going to build a "luxury" car, why would you base your interior on one of the industry's worst??

I just remarked to a friend how they used a 300C dash, and actually made it look luxurious (especially the center stack)

To be fair, nearly all interiors can look good in tan leather everywhere and with real wood. The switchgear, however, remains the same (so so) quality as in every Chrysler. So, I think once sitting in it, it will feel just okay, not that luxurious....

Here's an article in English, including some live shots. One of the options include a Chinese Tea pot. The body is made from Carbon Fiber and Kevlar. Hand-crafted too.
