Pope Francis may have been given a Lamborghini, but he won’t be driving it.
The pontiff plans to auction his new Lamborghini Huracan – painted especially for him in papal gold and white – to raise money for charity.
Francis received the Italian supercar on Wednesday morning in a ceremony in Vatican.
He blessed it, signed its hood, and promptly handed it over to Sotheby’s, which will auction off the Huracan on his behalf.
The special-edition sports car, which boasts a 610 metric horsepower, is expected to sell for significantly more than its Italian retail price of around €200,000.
The money will go towards helping displaced Christians in Iraq, victims of trafficking and prostitution, and Italian charities working children in countries in Africa.
