View the eBay Auction.

May 18, 2005, Cologne, Germany -- The recent eBay auction win by online casino GoldenPalace.com is easily one of the most popular events in Internet history. The item that shattered all eBay records, by incredibly receiving over 8.5 million visitors to its auction page, was Pope Benedict XVI's previously owned 1999 Volkswagen Golf.

Over the last 24 hours, GoldenPalace.com has completed its transaction with eBay seller Benjamin Halbe. The GoldenPalace.com team traveled to Olpe to pick up its latest acquisition. Then GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe formally presented a cheque to the seller for £188,938.88 (approx. $244,590.83 USD) live on popular German television show Stern TV, in front of a viewing audience of 3 million.

A few months before being elected leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI (then Cardinal Josef Ratzinger) decided to sell his six-year-old VW Golf. Without knowing the car's history, Benjamin Halbe, 21, bought the Golf in January. It was only when Halbe obtained the car's registration documents confirming Josef Ratzinger as the former owner that he realized the truly blessed nature of his purchase.

Halbe auctioned the car on eBay earlier this month. The winning bid was by Antigua registered online casino GoldenPalace.com. GoldenPalace.com is famous for its collection of eBay phenomena.

"GoldenPalace.com is delighted to own this unique vehicle," said CEO Richard Rowe. "The fact that over 8.5 million people viewed this auction shows that this item has captured the imagination of the public. GoldenPalace.com is now responding to the demand to see the car by taking it on a worldwide tour."
