Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo, as well as vice president Piero Ferrari and a selected delegation of the company's representatives, met with the Pope Benedict XVI this morning.
Di Montezemolo presented the Pope a cheque for almost a million Euro, raised by the sale of the 400th "Enzo", a car specially made to be auctioned for charity.
Sold by Sotheby's, the Enzo reached 950,000 Euro, almost over 50% more than its list price.
It was the second time this year that Ferrari representatives met with the Pope.
Back in January, a large group of Ferrari's employees and partners including Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello, met the late Pope John Paul II.
The Pope also received a present from Ferrari: Michael Schumacher's F2004 steering wheel, with the following dedication: "The Formula One World Champion's steering wheel to His Holiness Benedict XVI, Christianity's driver".
