A sweet ride was delivered to Vatican City on Wednesday, but it’s not replacing the Popemobile.
Lamborghini donated one of its special-edition Huracán vehicles to Pope Francis, who blessed it upon arrival. The car is white with gold trimming, which matches the pope’s clothing.
However, he will not be bending corners or spinning doughnuts in the luxury sports car. Instead, it will be auctioned by Sotheby’s in London, according to The Associated Press and Fortune magazine. Both reports place the Italian car’s starting value at $216,000, but the auction is expected to draw much more.
Proceeds will go to four charities.
