Pope Francis is auctioning off his sick 573-horsepower custom Lamborghini Huracán, which is in “virtually as-new condition.” The Lamborghini Huracán RWD, which was donated to the Pope, was produced by Ad Personam, the company’s customization department. It is painted Bianco Monocerus (white) with Giallo Tiberino (yellow) stripes that run along the body in homage to the colours of the flag of Vatican City.
The auction will be held on May 12th and hosted by Sotheby’s. Riding on diamond-finished 20-in. Giano wheels covering Nero callipers, the car is trimmed within in Bianco Leda Sportivo leather, with Lamborghini crests adorning the headrests. The final touch was added by the Pope himself, who signed the hood of the car upon seeing it for the first time. Presented in virtually as-new condition, the Huracán has remained in static storage since being produced in late 2017. Money from the auction will benefit charities.
This vehicle has chassis number ZHWEC2ZF1HLA06894, and it’s lot number 161 for the 2018 MONACO auction series with RM Sotheby’s. This vehicle’s bidding estimates are between $250-350-thousand Euro, and it’ll be offered without a reserve price.
