The Pope Has Finally Decided To Sell His Holy Lamborghini

Supercars / Comments

Supercars don't come purer than this.

Last year, Lamborghini made headlines when it gave away a Huracan to a very prestigious client - His Holiness, Pope Francis. Of course, it's hard to imagine the Pope driving around a race track in a V10 mid-engine supercar. In reality, Pope Francis never intended to keep the car, instead he signed it so it could be auctioned at RM Sotheby's Monaco on May 12, 2018. Aside from bearing the Pope's signature, this Huracan is also unique thanks special touches from Lamborghini's Ad Personam customization program.


The car is painted in a Bianco Monocerus color with Giallo Tiberino stripes, the same colors as the Vatican's flag. The paint job goes well with the unique set of wheels, which are painted in black and silver with Nero brake calipers. Inside, the Bianco Leda Sportivo leather matches the white paint on the exterior, and even features the Lamborghini crest stitched into the headrest. Since being prepared for the Pope, the car has sat in storage, so it will likely be in like-new condition. Anyone can go into a dealership and buy a Lamborghini if they have the money, but this is a unique chance to own the holiest Lamborghini in the world.

All of the proceeds will go to the Vatican, who will allocate the funds to several charitable causes. 70% will go to the Iraqi city of Nineveh, which was overrun by ISIS, 20% will go to other charitable groups, and 10% will go to the Pope John XXIII Community Association. The car is expected to fetch between €250,000 and €350,000 ($303,000 – $425,000) when it crosses the auction block, although it could go for much more if buyers are feeling charitable.
