At first glance, you wouldn’t necessarily notice what story hides behind the friendly smile of Abdulla Al Ketbi. We managed to have a conversation with him about his business and his passion. This isn’t exactly easy as Mr. Al Ketbi is a very busy man whose life is revolving around trading sports cars.
The business man always had a passion for high-performance Mercedes models. He regularly managed to get ahold of the newest and best Mercedes cars. This caught attention among his friends and other contact who then asked him if he could supply them with such exclusive cars as well. Therefore, Mr. Al Ketbi started to import a small number of Mercedes from Germany to the United Arab Emirates in 1992. He was quickly met with a lot of approval for this project which lead to the opening of the first Al Ain Class Motors showroom 1995 in Al Ain, the home town of Mr. Al Ketbi. It was followed by a large expansion. Today, there are five branches, three in Dubai and an additional one in Al Ain. He is also planning on expanding internationally.
