If you were up on your supercar news late last year, you may remember that his Holiness Pope Francis became the lucky recipient of a rear-wheel drive Lamborghini Huracan. After our dreams of smoking sideways action around the historical Rome Coliseum never materialised, the raging bull is heading to auction in the name of charity.
So, if you’re the kind of person that wants to feel all warm and fuzzy inside, or you’re merely looking for redemption then spending a massive amount over the standard list price for a genuinely one-off Lamborghini could be for you.
The auction of the holiest of all Huracan’s will take place on May 12 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. This auction coincides with the Monaco Grand Prix, where last year some EUR 27.5 million was spent on rare and exotic metal.
This Lamborghini Huracan has been signed by Pope Francis himself and is finished in Bianco Monocerus contrasted by Giallo Tiberino stripe work in homage to the colours of the Vatican City flag. All of which makes it look pretty mega in the visuals department.
All proceeds from the sale will be donated by the Vatican to a quartet of worthy charities, all of which are close to Pope Francis’ heart according to the auction listing.
