Ferrari donates proceeds of 400th Enzo to Pope
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."
