So here is some info on Bufori from Wikipedia.
Bufori is a brand of hand-built automobiles inspired by American 1930s coupes. The company is owned by three Australian Lebanese brothers Anthony, George and Gerry Khouri. In 1986, Gerry Khouri began to build three special sports cars in his garage, one each for the three brothers, which led to the formation of the company. The name Bufori does not have any essential meaning, but rather supposedly stands for B - Beautiful U - Unique F - Fantastic O - Original R - Romantic I - Irresistible.
Originally, all of the manufacturing and sales operations were conducted in Australia, but in 1998 full production moved to new facilities in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The production facility in Kuala Lumpur has an installed capacity of 300 vehicles per year, and the company employs 110 skilled craftsmen.
The miniature Bufori in the waiting room. Not so mini. It can actually fit in 2 kids nicely.
Kids drew and played with Play-Doh while waiting for their turn to go into the factory.
The homeschoolers. Getting ready to go into the factory.
Ms Julie-Ann, the daughter of one of the founders, briefed the kids the do's and don'ts before going in.
Inside the factory. Each unit is built by hand using traditional techniques in a 25-step production process. Every Bufori is made to order and can be customised according to the owner's wishes. The body of a Bufori is made out of carbon fibre and Kevlar composite material, which is light and ultra-strong. Kevlar is also the material used in bullet proof vest.
The final product. If I heard her correctly, this beauty starts at $RM1.3 million.
Or if u don't have $1.3 million, u can just hop in and imagine the ride ;-)
Ms Julie-Ann ended the trip with some inspiring message on chasing dreams. Telling the kids the story of her father who have the dream of building his own car when he was a small boy. Yes kiddos...chase your dream. Sky is the limit.
The whole trip took us slightly more than 1 hour. It was pretty nice actually. We enjoyed the trip.
Nice introduction to kids on how car is built. Thank u Bufori ;-)
