Alghanim Auto opens 2016-17 season with Ford Mustang owners and enthusiasts
Amazing turnout at Alghanim Auto Service Center
In another move that underscores the commitment the Alghanim Auto has toward loyal Ford customers, the company recently organized a special gathering dedicated to Mustang owners and fans in cooperation with the local enthusiast groups, FordRacingQ8 and 5.0Q8, who represent hundreds of Mustang owners in Kuwait. The gathering featured a variety of Mustang vehicles of different models and colors at the Alghanim Auto Service Center on the evening of Friday December 9th, 2016.
The celebration of this special gathering, which Alghanim Auto saw as a great opportunity to further connect with its customers, featured DJ music and a food station catering for the guests along with an eye-catching display of Ford Mustang models, including the new 2017 Shelby GT350, Mustang GT Convertible, and a highly customized GT model enhanced with unique accessories. And to add more thrill and fun to this auspicious gathering, Alghanim Auto hosted a trivia contest for which participants received valuable prizes, and all Mustang owners went home with branded gifts in appreciation of their attendance, as well as vouchers for a free oil and filter change. Before the event came to a close, Alghanim Auto organized a special photo shoot to commemorate the groups’ attendance and continuous loyalty for their beloved automotive brand.
Alghanim Auto ultimately concluded the event by reinstating the importance of supporting passionate fans and the youth, and working closely with the group members to keep them abreast of the latest products, offers, and amazing services. The gathering, after all, represents Alghanim Auto’s dedication to build a successful relationship with all Ford customers, especially the youth, who have always aspired to own the legendary Ford Mustang and for what it represents in terms of American muscle, craftsmanship, and power.
The Mustang’s impact goes well beyond the 9 million-plus cars sold in its 50 years of continuous production. It has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games. The new design of the Mustang reflects a contemporary interpretation of its legendary heritage, as an automotive icon that symbolizes power and freedom for millions of people around the world, beginning from the sound of its engine. In its current generation, the Mustang is offered at Alghanim Auto in both fastback and convertible models. As far as performance goes, the available engine lineup boasts 300HP and 280 lb.-ft. of torque on tap from the standard 3.7liter V6 engine.
Meanwhile, fans of big displacement can enjoy the thrill delivered by the throaty 5.0-liter V8 that yields 435HP and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. In addition, the all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine with output of 310HP uses direct injection, variable cam timing and turbocharging to deliver plenty of usable performance and projected segment-leading fuel efficiency. Mustang fans in Kuwait will now appreciate the availability of the six-speed manual transmission, or opt for the automatic and still enjoy an enormous amount of performance and flexibility. For performance purists, Alghanim Auto is also exclusively offering the new 2017 Shelby GT350 Mustang in three new colors: Grabber Blue, Lightning Blue and Ruby Red.
The new Shelby GT350 is a world-class performance vehicle, designed to tackle the planet’s most challenging roads. The new GT350 takes advantage of a dramatically improved sixth-generation Mustang to create a truly special driving experience. Driving enthusiasts behind the wheel of a Shelby GT350 can expect to be treated to the most balanced, nimble and exhilarating production Mustang yet.
Ford engineers took an innovative approach with GT350; rather than develop individual systems to perform well independently, every component and shape is optimized to work in concert; balance is the key. While paying rigorous attention to detail, the team pushed the envelope with cutting-edge materials and technologies. The Shelby GT350’s new 5.2-liter V8 engine is considered the most powerful, naturally aspirated production Ford engine ever, at 526 horsepower and the highest-revving V8 in Ford history - with a redline of 8,250 rpm.ft. It is also the most efficient in terms of specific output.
Without turbocharging or supercharging, the flat-plane crankshaft V8 produces 102 horsepower per liter of displacement. Ultra-quick responsiveness to changing conditions is provided by the first-ever Ford application of continuously controlled MagneRide dampers. The new Shelby GT350 also features Brembo brakes, the most track-credible brake system ever offered on a Ford vehicle in terms of absolute stopping power, fade resistance and brake pedal feel. GT350 makes use of extra-stiff 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels - 10.5 inches wide in front, 11.0 inches in the rear - clad in state-of-the-art Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires with GT350-specific sidewall construction, tread face and compound. The custom tires are designed to deliver maximum grip on the road or during weekend track days.
Shelby GT350 has been weight-optimized to balance capability with on-track durability. Lightweight components are engineered to offset added extreme-performance hardware, and, as a result, the standard GT350 tips the scales at 1,705kg only. Only Alghanim Auto has been contractually authorized by Ford to sell new Ford vehicles and provide aftersales support and genuine Ford and Motorcraft spare parts for Ford customers in Kuwait. The Alghanim Auto service center provides the highest levels of service by a team of Ford-trained and qualified technicians who use genuine Ford and Motorcraft spare parts to ensure the best operation of vehicles.
