The Holiest Lamborghini Ever Will Be Up For Auction This Spring

15 Novembre 2017

Lamborghini gave Pope Francis a personalized white supercar on Wednesday, but he put it up for auction to raise money for charity rather than give up his trademark popemobile.

The $200k ride seems fairly blessed already - zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds on 600 horses - but the Pope's word has to get ya out of a few tickets, no?

Members of the company's top management presented the auto to Francis in the Vatican on Wednesday morning, after which the Pope blessed the vehicle and signed its hood.

Instead, the special edition Huracan will be auctioned off by Sotheby's, with the proceeds going to charities including one aimed at helping rebuild Christian communities in Iraq that were devastated by the Islamic State group.

Base prices for the Huracan, introduced in 2014, usually start at around 183,000 euros. As pope, he uses a blue Ford Focus inside the Vatican walls, and he has made a statement on all his foreign trips by shunning fancy, bullet-proof SUVs and opting instead for modest Fiats or KIAs. The proceeds, the Vatican said, will be given to the pope, who already has chosen to fund three projects: the resettlement of Christians in Iraq's Ninevah Plain; support for women rescued from human trafficking and forced prostitution; and assistance to the suffering in Africa.
