October 2017/August 2018 I have spotted this matte black ABT RS3 8V in the almost empty parking of the NH Lingotto hotel, on a sunny day of August 2018, a few days before departing for my holiday to Sardinia, the car was owned by a football player of Torino FC but I have never discovered who, I remember that I have seen a pic of the French-Algerian player Mohamed Fares (now playing for Brescia, on loan from Lazio), but when I took this pics he wasn't playing for Torino FC, even if he did, even if with no official appearances, for a short period in 2022, so maybe he bought the car from the mysterious team mate owning it in that short period? I don't know and possibly I will never know haha. Pic N.9 from October 2017 shows the car already with ABT parts but without the matte black wrap, in its original lucid black color, parked in the parking lot of Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino reserved for the footballers, behind the red Ferrari 458 Spider that was owned by the Serbian player Adem Ljajić. A small and quite sad note about this spot is that this RS3 was my first spot after my father passed away at the end of June of 2018.
