Wow @speedy. That's some weird and wacky car.

Did some reading up.

The company used to be Australian and is now Malaysian.

Bufori cars were made in Australia before the entire production and R&D was moved to Kepong, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1998.
Production is only six units per month.
Price per unit is 200,000 Malaysian Ringgits.

Bufori has been around for ten years and produced only 300 cars till date.

The La Joya has a carbon-fibre and Kevlar body. 50%-50% weight distribution.
Standard features are:
ABS, EBS, Voice activated satellite navigation,
bluetooth telecommunications, french-polished walnut dashboard with gold-plated instruments, and the owner's choice of premium leather and 100% silk Persian carpets.

Right on Awini and G.S. about ID:335
ID:337-Definately the Ginetta G4..
The G4 in 1961 used the 997cc Ford Anglia four cyl engine. Most G4s were powered wioth this engine. The G4s can still be seen participaring in races for historical cars.

I think Ginetta G4 was introduced in 1961 and the G4R was introduced in 1997. I may be wrong but I will still stick to G4!

Quote:
The G3 was introduced with glass fibre body in 1959 to be followed by the G4 in 1961. The G4 used the new Ford 105E engine and had a glass fibre GT style body and the suspension was updated to coil springing at the front with Ford live axle at the rear. Where the G2 and G3 had been designed for competition the G4 was usable as an everyday car but still was very competitive in Motor Sport with numerous successes. Over 500 were made up to 1969 with a variety of Ford engines. In 1963 a coupe was introduced alongside the open car and a BMC axle replaced the Ford one at the rear. On test the car reached 120 mph with a 1500 cc engine. The series III version of 1966 added the then popular pop up headlights.

ID 338 is a Triumph, looks a lot like the GT6, though I think this was a special racebred line, I forget the name.
