I guess the Pope doesn't like sports cars. Ferrari's 400th Enzo, which it originally donated to Pope John Paul II before his death, has been sold by Ferrari at Sotheby's to an unnamed American rich dude for $1.1 million, twice the going rate. The company then gave the money to Pope Benedict XVI for humanitarian relief.
Evidently, Benedict didn't want the Enzo for his personal popemobile, saying that he has enough trouble trying to "drive the church."

      This is kinda old news. Saw this on 5th or top gear awhile back. Like last season.

      Aren't Ferrari and the Church competitors? After all, they both provide religious experiences. =)

      $1.1 mil is spot on the going rate for an Enzo. Where does Erin get this info...lol!

      Ferrari themselves sell the Enzos at $650K. so 1.1 is about twice that. everyone else sells the car for 1 million or more

      how is 1.1 for an enzo 2 times the going rate? Sounds about right to me..
