In wake of Pope’s resignation, ‘PopeMobile’ from record-breaking auction goes back on the block for charity.
Banbury, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2013 -- 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 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 €188,938.88.
