The year 2018 was a special one for Al Mulla and Behbehani, the authorized distributor of Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Fiat, Ram and Mopar in Kuwait, - wherein it accomplished many successes on all levels, such as upgrading facilities, expansion, launch of new models, and improved customer service. Additionally, in 2018 Al Mulla & Behbehani debuted the Abarth brand – THE LEGEND OF SCORPION - in Kuwait.


Inauguration of the new integrated facility in Ahmadi:

In May 2018, Al Mulla & Behbehani opened the new facility in Ahmadi, which was the most advanced in the region. The new facility, located near the new local Co-op and medical clinic in Ahmadi, is designed to meet all customer needs, from the initial purchase to ongoing maintenance of vehicles and management of the ownership throughout the customer’s relationship with Al Mulla & Behbehani.


The one-stop facility features a new vehicle showroom, a general repairs service center with its own dedicated lounge and, for the first time in Ahmadi, a dedicated “drive into the bay” ExpressLane quick service area with its own lounge, designed to provide lightning-fast oil and filter changes.


In addition, the modern body repair shop, which occupies the largest area of the site, incorporates the most technologically advanced equipment for repairs according to FCA’s demanding global specifications, and the working processes and tooling are also in accordance with these strict manufacturer guidelines. The facility includes a parking space for more than 150 cars.


Inauguration of the new Alfa Romeo-Fiat showroom and launch of the all-new Stelvio Quadrifoglio:

Later in May, Al Mulla & Behbehani inaugurated the new Alfa Romeo-Fiat showroom and launched the all-new Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, the fastest and most powerful car in the world.


The new Alfa Romeo showroom is an icon and a symbol added to the series of upgrades made by Al Mulla and Behbehani, which has been elegantly modernized to reflect the beautiful design of the Alfa Romeo, which is shown in the furniture used and stunning aesthetic touches.


At the ceremony, the all-new Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, with its many impressive features, was unveiled to set new standards for the high-performance SUV and contemporary look.


The vehicle is distinguished with the 2.9 litre V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine and eight-speed transmission - maximum power of 510hp at 6,500 rpm and maximum torque of 600 Nm from 2,500 to 5,000 rpm.


Al Mulla & Behbehani debuts ABARTH to Kuwait market

In October 2018, Al Mulla & Behbehani launched the Power of the Scorpion in Kuwait. The ABARTH brand was officially revealed as a sporty car, powerful yet compact. Transforming the ordinary into something extraordinary, unique and exclusive yet within reach of anyone seeking a departure from the norm.  This is the mission of Abarth - the brand with the Scorpion badge - which has always been the byword for performance through engineering and wrapped in an iconic Italian style. The ceremony took place in the brand new showroom specifically created for the Italian brands.


The new 595 and 695 Abarth line-up available in the Middle East includes two body types (Lounge and Convertible) and two trim levels (595 Competizione and 695 Rivale) - both are equipped with powerful 180hp 1.4 T-jet engines that develop torque of 250 Nm at 3000 rpm via their Garrett GT 1446 turbos. Many of the upgrades featured in these vehicles are the result of experience gained with the development of the 695 Biposto, the smallest supercar that offers the thrills and technology of a real racing car in a street-legal vehicle.


And Launches the all-new Jeep Wrangler

In November, the all-new Jeep Wrangler was launched in a festive atmosphere full of adventure. in the presence of H.E. the Ambassador of the United States of America to Kuwait Lawrence Silverman, H.E. the Ambassador of Italy to Kuwait, Giuseppe Scognamiglio, Board of Directors of Al Mulla & Behbehani, as well as guests from the media, and the Mopar club.
