Lamborghini Gives Pope Francis a Huracan

Lamborghini custom-built the Huracan for Pope Francis to be auctioned off by Sotheby's in May 2018, with proceeds going to a papal charity.

As things go, it might bring $300,000 to $500,000, perhaps as much as $850,000, on the regular auction circuit. Pope Francis christened the Lamborghini by signing it "Francesco" with a black market on the vehicle.

"Give to the needy, stop tithing to the greedy, while one Port Harcourt pastor got a private jet and Rolls Royce on his 55th birthday, our Pope was selling a Lamborghini gifted to him, to raise money for charity".

Greed is the third of the seven deadly sins, so it's no surprise that Pope Francis will not be driving the gold and white Lamborghini Huracán that the luxury auto manufacturer donated to the Vatican on Wednesday.

And one more photo just for kicks. With a big grin, Pope Francis signed "Francesco" on the hood.

The Pope made a decision to auction off the sports auto to benefit Christians persecuted by ISIS in Iraq, according to Vatican Radio. Both programs have been in Africa for many years helping women and children in need. It's not just any other RWD Huracan, because Lambo's Ad Personam customization unit worked its magic on the example, which came out with a fitting shade that pays its respects to the Vatican City flag.

Pope Francis attended the presentation of the vehicle along with Stefano Domenicali, chairman, and chief executive.
