The CS here stands for “Compact Sports”, where it was fully designed and developed by BMCC (Bufori Motor Car Company).

The monocoque body is made with the ingredients of very light reinforced carbon fiber and kevlar and bolts on a space frame chassis.

On the engine bay, this baby is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged engine, no figures on the power and torque yet… I always feel that a 2.0l turbo will be a just nice car to drive around with the enough ooommmpphhh :p

I think when they official figures are revealed, it will be definitely crazy, as this car sounds and looks very light, coupled to a turbo, i can’t imagine the power-to-weight ratio :p

We could not have wished for a better occasion. Our intention is to transfer the racing technology to the road version of the BUFORI CS and bring in all the qualities for which BUFORI is renowned” says Felix Haller, General Manager Marketing & Operations of BMCC.
