A car said to have been owned by the Pope has remained unsold at auction after failing to match its sale price of two years ago.
The eBay auction of the 1999 metallic gray Volkswagen Golf closed on Saturday without it reaching a reserve in excess of a bid of $204,000 (£102,000). It was not known what reserve the owner - a US online casino - had set. Golden Palace casino paid about $244,000 to the previous owner, a German who got it for just $13,500.
