Padre Pio Car for Sale

From the Corriere della Sera.
The linked article explains that a 1936 Fiat Topolino blessed and used by Padre Pio (St Pio of Pietrelcino for the pedantic! ;) ) is for sale on Ebay Italia for €950,000 (link to eBay page), i.e. more than US$1,000,000!
The car is being sold by one signora Aloisa Panphili and the provenance of the car is testified to by Giovanna Rizzani. Padre Pio appeared (by means of bilocation) in the Rizzani palace while Giovanna was being born and her father Marquess Giovanbattista Rizzani was dying, on 18 Jan 1905. She would meet Padre Pio, again by bilocation, 18 years later in St Peter's in Rome, and she became his spiritual daughter.
The car itself was blessed by Padre Pio in San Giovanni Rotondo and in it he was brought to hear the confession of a dying man.

eBay motors is so popular. People around the world can sell their items here... Though is it ok for them to put that car up for auction?
