The Pope’s Lamborghini Huracan Expected To Fetch $300-425k In Auction

The unique Lamborghini Huracan RWD gifted to Pope Francis last year will be auctioned without a reserve at RM Sotheby’s Monaco sale on May 12.

This Huracan is the product of Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program and sports a Bianco Monocerus paint with Giallo Tiberino stripes and accents as a tribute to the flag of Vatican City.

Additionally, the Pope’s unique set of wheels are painted in black and silver and complement the Nero brake calipers. Completing the Huracan’s eye-catching exterior is the signature of Pope Francis on the hood.

Unique? Is The Pope Catholic?

Take a step inside and you’ll find Bianco Leda Sportivo leather and Lamborghini crests on the headrests.

Since being presented to the Pope roughly six months ago, the car has been kept in storage and could prove a unique addition to any Lamborghini collection.

All the process from the sale will be delivered directly to the Pope. He will then give 70 per cent to the Iraqi city of Nineveh, which was besieged by ISIS, 10 per cent to Amici per il Centrafrica Onlus, 10 per cent to Groupe International Chirurgiens Amis de la Main and 10 per cent to the Pope John XXIII Community Association.

Pre-auction estimates suggest the car will sell for between €250,000 and €350,000 ($303,000 – $425,000). We presume there’ll be no shortage of interested buyers, plus it’s all for a good cause.

    This actually looks quite good, much better than the over bought bright lime green. I especially like the white interior seat inserts, they match well. The wheels look pretty cool too from the side view.
