Model Evolution - BUFORI MKII - Series 1 & 2 (1992-2003)The BUFORI MK II replaced the MKI in 1992, and quickly became a success. The first series was equipped with a 1.8 litre engine, followed by a 2.2 litre power plant mounted in the second series.
Available with a manual or automatic transmission, the classic roadster was also offered with the finest leather upholstery and options such as a hardtop.
But the most outstanding feature was its custom-tailored bodywork!
BUFORI literally took the measurement of the owner's body to build the car exclusively for him. A unique feature in automotive industry!
Production of the car was stopped in 2003, when BUFORI launched its latest model, the MKIII "La Joya".
