Though it is not know if Pope Benedict XVI actually drove the car, this 1999 Volkswagen Golf was registered to Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger when it was purchased and shipped to Italy in 1999. The German car dealer saw dollar signs in that registration and put the car up on Ebay Germany. The car is already commanding over $50,000.
