LONDON, ENGLAND, March 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The car that drew international attention and broke eBay records with over 10 million visitors to its auction page in May 2005, is going back on the auction block once again courtesy of GoldenPalace.com, the current owners of the famous collectible.
In what was easily one of the most phenomenal events in Internet history, the car which once belonged to Cardinal Josef Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, was won by online casino GoldenPalace.com for an impressive EUR188,938.88.
"This auction allows others to experience the thrill of owning an object of such great significance" said Richard Allen, a spokesperson for GoldenPalace.com. Allen went on to say that "knowing that in listing the car we also have the ability to help raise awareness for a respected charitable organization such as Habitat for Humanity means a great deal to us.
