Asia's Rich Crave Luxury Handmade Cars
Despite the economic outlook, handcrafted luxury cars made in Malaysia are
still in high demand in Asia and the Middle East, with customers willing to
wait up to two years for the car of their dreams.
A hundred car craftsmen are hard at work at this small factory on the
outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.
They polish the elegant body and fit it with custom-made parts. Leather is
cut and stitched by hand to create the seats of the Bufori Motor Car luxury
vehicles which can cost anywhere from 15,000 to 30,000 US dollars.
But despite the hefty price tag, the cars are wildly popular among the rich
in Asia and the Middle East and the factory can't keep up with demand,
despite global economic doldrums.
The business is owned by a family of Lebanese-Australians who started their
business in Sydney, and moved to Malaysia in 1992 to meet the growing
demand from Asian customers.
Gerry Khouri, the founder and managing director of the Bufori company
explains how much time and effort goes into each car.
[Gerry Khouri, Bufori Founder and Managing Director]:
"If you look at a mass-produced car maker, 50 man hours is considered too
much. We are talking 3,500 is how fast this car we can make by hand, and
9,000 for the big one. It's a lot of man hours we got into these cars. We
literally make these cars by hand, we don't buy parts, assemble, and say
that it is a car. We literally make the car from scratch to what you see."
With this many hours put into each car, customers have to wait at least a
year for the car of their dreams to roll off the assembly line.
Tan eHong is a Malaysian entrepreneur who owns a green technology company.
She waited two years for her car—a pale gold four-door Bufori Geneva.
[Tan eHong, Malaysian entrepreneur]:
"It is worth the wait. The beautiful thing is I get to see from the
structure of it from the build up, from the beginning until the end. And
that gives me excitement, the sense of like a baby, you know, from the
infant and grow up."
The fully computerized smart car has enhanced safety measures and the
interior is customized for each owner.
Tan's car has a hot water dispenser for preparing Chinese tea. It also
comes with an aromatherapy function so that Tan can inhale soothing scents
as she travels between work appointments.
Tan said she was first attracted by the beautiful curves of the car.
[Tan eHong, Malaysian entrepreneur]:
"It is to me an art—the passion of beauty, the passion of the classic
look of it, that will last generations to come."
Bufori opened its largest showroom in Shanghai, China, earlier this year,
hoping to attract wealthy Chinese.

How to make a Concept Car with Clay sculpting DIY - The real Fast and Furious - JZ COBRA
The Real Fast and the Furious. A full size concept for the streets. Here is
a speed up time-lapse of the JZ Cobra Concept car for those that requested
it. This JZ Cobra Concept was designed and built using clay sculpting or
clay moulding to get the shape. The JZ Cobra concept uses a Toyota Supra
chassis to build upon and therefore is sometimes referred to as a reshell.
All clay work and design done by Russell Dennis. JZ COBRA CONCEPT
Total hours to design this concept and build it ready for paint was 1545
hours. That is all the exterior work from the front all the way to the back
and includes all the design work and all the clay sculpting and all the
fiberglass and carbon work.
If you like this design I can build a copy for anyone interested. I made a
set of moulds for this build and so can send you a fiberglass Shell/body
kit so that you can build one or I can do the whole job for you.
