We spoke to organizers of the "Runway for Life" benefit for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital over the weekend to get an update on the Enzo auction, and it's safe to say that the car did its job. According to our source, the Enzo sold for $1,150,000 to Luxury Motors, a dealership located in Downer's Grove, Illinois.
The selling price puts the "Runway for Life" car in the same general neighborhood as the 400th Enzo, which was presented to Pope John Paul II and subsequently auctioned off for $1,274,299. The proceeds from that particular sale benefitted survivors of the 2004 tsunami.
We're told to expect a full press release in the near future. When it's made available, we'll update this post accordingly. For now, though, count all of us among those happy to see that the car brought in big bucks for a very worthy cause.
Finally, we'd be remiss if we didn't offer an extra-special tip of the cap to the anonymous donor who generously supplied the car and made this great story possible.
