FOTD: Uber Rare ABT B3 Widebody Barn Find in Switzerland

While well-loved by those who know, the B3 era isn’t a car that tends to be the most collectible. Sure, there was the S2 Coupe in Europe and by association (and thanks in part to Brian Scotto) the Coupe quattro gets love. The sedans though… they almost seem forgotten about by all but the most ardent. So, when we find one that is truly rare or collectible and a barn find no less, we had to draw attention to it.

Even by B3 standards, the car you see here is incredibly obscure. The car appears to be a widebody sedan built by ABT Sportsline in period, and one of 50 according to the seller. It’s not turbocharged, and looks admittedly a little tired, but it appears to be all there and largely unmolested save for a few random decals for Jäegermeister and John Deere.

The car is currently on Facebook Marketplace (LINK HERE), and the ad isn’t in English so we’ve taken the liberty of using Facebook’s translation tool in order to share the words of the seller.
