Pope Francis Gets New Lamborghini And Auctions It Off

Pope Francis Gets New Lamborghini And Auctions It Off

Pope Francis signs a Lamborghini Huracan prior to his Wednesday general audience in Saint Peter's square at the Vatican, November 15, 2017.

The luxury sports vehicle was handed to him by the Lamborghini company, according to Newsweek.

"It is painted Bianco Monocerus (white) with Giallo Tiberino (yellow) stripes that run along the body in homage to the colors of the flag of Vatican City", Lamborghini said.

In the past, Francis has been noted for often avoiding the "Popemobile", instead preferring a small Fiat 500 on his travels.

M - Pope Francis has a new auto, and it's a lot faster than the "Popemobile".

The auction will take place in May 2018, "with the proceeds delivered directly to the Holy Father", the company said. (A Huracan already sells for upward of $200,000).

ACN aims to "guarantee the return of Christians to the Nineveh Plains in Iraq through the rebuilding of their homes, the public structures and their site of prayers", according to their statement.

An iPad that Pope Francis once owned sold for $30,500.

They will also go to help female victims of human trafficking and forced prostitution and to two Italian groups which provide medical services in central Africa.

The auto, complete with the Pope's signature and blessing is valued at over $310850 and is set to be auctioned mid-week. In 2014, Harley-Davidson gave him a Dyna Super Glide, which has about a $22,000 resale value, according to the New York Times.
