Al­ghanim Auto opens 2016-17 sea­son with Ford Mus­tang own­ers and en­thu­si­asts

Amaz­ing turnout at Al­ghanim Auto Ser­vice Cen­ter

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

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.

All cur­rent Ford own­ers can visit the ser­vice cen­ter from Satur­day till Thurs­day be­tween 7AM 7PM. For added con­ve­nience, the Ex­press Ser­vice is open from 7AM - 10PM from Satur­day Thurs­day, and 2PM - 7PM on Fri­days.
