See What Pope Francis Plans To Do With His $219,000 Lamborghini Car Gift

Pope Francis was offered a Lamborghini Huracan on Wednesday but the Vatican said there was no future as a popemobile for the Italian supercar.

Pope Francis was given a specially prepared Huracan model, and the unusual gift was presented to the pope at the Vatican by the top management of Lamborghini, which is part of Germany’s Volkswagen Group.
The Huracan, which has a top speed of more than 300 km per hour and has a starting price in Italy of 185,000 euros ($219,000), will instead be auctioned for charity, a statement said.

Proceeds will go to a Catholic charity seeking to return Christian exiles to Iraq, to another one helping victims of the sex trade in Italy and to two Italian charities that operate in Africa.
