Win Pope Francis' Lamborghini Huracan for $10

Video / 4 Comments

After an issue with the last auction, a $10 donation is all you need to win this special Huracan.

Back in 2017, Lamborghini built this one-off special edition Huracan for none other than Pope Francis. As we mentioned at the time, Pope Francis is no car enthusiast. In fact, he's known for being quite frugal, preferring to drive around in humble hatchbacks like the Fiat 500 and Ford Focus. The Pope is also known for his philanthropic efforts, and so the Huracan had actually been built as a charity effort—the Pope signed the hood of the vehicle at a special ceremony in Vatican City before being auctioned off by RM Sotheby.

The auction took place earlier this year in May, and the car sold for a hefty 715,000 Euros, far surpassing the estimated range of 250,000–350,000 Euros. Much of the proceeds went towards the reconstruction of the Nineveh Plain in Iraq in an attempt to help the Christian community resettle by rebuilding their homes and the infrastructure of the area.

Another portion of the money was sent to the Pope John XXIII Community, a charity that strives to help women who are victims of human trafficking, and a further two organizations in Africa that help women and children in need received donations as well.

However, the transaction wasn't finalized, and so the Huracan will once again be offered for a charitable cause. In a contest through Omaze.com, contestants can donate just $10 for a chance to win the bespoke Huracan. Not only that, but they and a guest will be flown to the Vatican and put up in a 4-star hotel before private meeting with the Pope in which he will hand over the keys. The proceeds will go towards similar charities, helping to rebuild villages devastated by war, helping victims of human trafficking, and supplying impoverished people with medical care and education.

The winner will receive a RWD Huracan painted in Bianco Monocerus white with Giallo Tiberino stripes, a color inspired by the Vatican flag. And of course, the supercar features Pope Francis' signature on its hood. Head this way to enter the contest.
