Holy Lambo! Pope Francis' epic Huracan sells for R10-million

Holy Lambo! Pope Francis' epic Huracan sells for R10-million

A custom-built 2018 Lamborghini Huracan coupe autographed by Pope Francis raised over half a million pounds at a Sotheby's auction on 12th May in Monaco.

The 198mph two-seater Hurrican, which would typically be worth around £155,000, was donated to the Pope in November a year ago.

The auto was sold at RM Sotheby's Monte Carlo Grimaldi Forum with all of the proceeds from its $861,575 hammer price going to special causes.

The remaining money will be split equally between three charities: the Pope John XXIII Community, which helps victims of human trafficking, and two Italian associations that provide aid for women and children in Africa.

RM Sotheby's described the Lamborghini as being in "as-new condition" having remained in static storage since it was built late previous year. Pope Francis signed the bonnet.

The supercar, which was specially prepared by Lamborghini's Ad Personam personalisation department, wore the white-and-gold colours of the Vatican City flag.

The Huracan RWD sits on diamond-finished 20 inch Giano wheels with Nero callipers.

We give thanks to His Holiness Pope Francis for donating the sale fee to charity, and for Lamborghini for gifting the auto, as we are pleased to have played a part in sourcing money for good causes.
