Fast Auto Technic presents Ferrari Portofino

Fast Auto Technic Company (FAST), the official Ferrari importer-dealer in Saudi Arabia, started an exclusive media and VIP event to present the Portofino, the latest model from the iconic Ferrari stable.
Guests were invited to view this beautiful new model, which has fast captured the imagination of clients the world-over, since its global debut at last year’s Frankfurt International Motor Show.
FAST’s initiative to present the all-new Ferrari Portofino reflects the company’s gratitude for its clients and its passion to bring models to their showrooms in both Jeddah and Riyadh for a two-week window.
The events were designed to showcase the innovative technology and extreme sophistication.  
Ferrari has chosen a particularly evocative name for this exceptionally versatile drop-top car.
Portofino is renowned for its charming port and, over the years, has become internationally synonymous with elegance, sportiness and understated luxury.
The launch color of the new Ferrari has also been dedicated to this marvellous town: Rosso Portofino.
Capable of unleashing a massive 600 cv and sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, the Ferrari Portofino is the most powerful convertible to combine the advantages of a retractable hard top, a roomy boot and generous cockpit space plus two rear seats suitable for short trips.
The Ferrari Portofino’s all-new chassis features a significant weight saving over the California T it replaces.
Thanks to the extensive use of modern production technologies, all the chassis and body-in-white components have been redesigned with a consequent reduction in weight despite an increase in torsional rigidity.
The Portofino is a Ferrari designed to be driven every day that also effortlessly converts from an authentic ‘berlinetta’ coupé to a drop-top capable of delivering a unique Ferrari soundtrack and superb driving pleasure even in day-to-day situations.  
Commenting on this unique event, Fathy Allam, general manager of Fast Auto Technic, said: “ We have received a great deal of positive feedback from our customers about the all-new Portofino over the past few months, mainly queries around the availability of the car in Saudi Arabia. Despite the relatively short display period, we successfully managed to bring a large number of Ferrari enthusiasts to have a good look at the car, show their appreciation and reserve their own unique vehicle.”

Talga hosts event to raise awareness on SDG 3.4

The Association for Sustainable Development (Talga) in partnership with the Saudi Scouts Association represented by the Messengers of Peace Commission, hosted an initiative called “I Want to Say Something,” which aimed at promoting effective practices that treat and prevent mental health problems among children.

Studies show that being a member of the scouts or guides during childhood is linked to a lower risk of mental illness.

The initiative seeks to encourage children to develop values embraced by scouts such as community involvement, teamwork, bio-empathy, love for learning and emotional intelligence. 

The event was hosted outdoors where workshops were conducted in tents and children enjoyed an authentic scouting ambience. 

The workshops focused on raising awareness on mental health and teaching positive skills that are essential for children through arts and a creative approach. Other activities included basic scouting skills like knot tying, celestial navigation as well as outdoor yoga and meditation. 

In addition, the initiative aimed to contribute to sustainable development goal (SDG) target 3.4, which focuses on raising awareness on mental health and reducing its risks by 2030, which is essential to raising generations that are positively engaged in their communities and societies.
