Geneva 2010: Bufori Geneva is Australian for luxury, mate

During their press conference, Bufori founder and owner Anthony Khouri mentioned that he and his two brothers George and Gerry had so fallen in love with Geneva that they decided to name their new sedan after the fine, Swiss city. An honor for sure, though speaking honestly before they yanked the cover off, we were set to dismiss the newest Bufori as what would happen to your Morgan if you parked it inside a Krispy Kreme for the weekend.

However, and maybe we were swayed by the presentation, but there's more to the Bufori Geneva than meets the eye. Under the hood you'll find the same 6.1-liter Hemi V8 found in SRT-model Chryslers, though for Geneva duty it's tuned to 430 horsepower (instead of 420 hp). If you like, Bufori will be more than happy to slap a supercharger on that puppy, bumping the output to "nearly 600 hp." The Geneva also rides on adjustable air suspension atop a four-wheel multi-link suspension system.

The Geneva also has a full range of modern electronic bells and whistles including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and night vision. More importantly, the body is made out of a blend of Kevlar and carbon fiber, the first such "hybrid" body ever to cover a four-door sedan. As far as the looks go, we can state emphatically that the Geneva is the best looking Bufori ever made. You can debate the specifics of the design amongst yourselves.

The big news is inside the handmade Australian luxo-barge, specifically in the backseat that you enter through suicide doors. Like other luxury rides such as the big Maybachs, there's a mini bar, a champagne fridge, integrated champagne flutes and fully adjustable rear seats. But the Geneva takes it to the next level. There's a locking cash box for all of your loose, ill-gotten gains and the Geneva's pièce de résistance, an integrated tea set featuring an instant boiling water tap. No, really.

While Bufori claims they have the capacity to produce 300 Genevas per anum, they are limiting the yearly total to just 60 cars. Hey, there's no substitute for exclusivity. There's also no word on price but we'll take a guess: a lot. In case you're wondering, we won't be seeing the Bufori Geneva in the States. Instead, Bufori will focus their sales in and around Southeast Asia, the Middle East, China and India.
