The supreme pontiff and leader of all Catholics worldwide, Pope Francis, was recently gifted a very special edition Lamborghini Huracán in front of the Vatican hotel where he lives in Rome.

While it’s not considered to be the new popemobile, this exclusive variation of the supercar will be auctioned off at RM Sotheby’s next year with the proceeds donated to three charitable causes: restoring villages on the Nineveh Plain in Iraq, helping victims of human trafficking, and supporting missionary work in Africa.

The vehicle is colored in crisp white with yellow-gold detailing flowing across the hood, roof and body, essentially reflecting the colors of the flag of Vatican City.

While pricing for this model typically starts at $199,800 USD, this particular version is also blessed and autographed by the pontiff, so expect its final price in the auction to exceed more than a million dollars.

In case you missed it, Lamborghini and MIT look to the future with the electric Terzo Millennio.
