This Lamborghini Huracan Is One Awesome Papal Bull

Pope Francis might be the fastest holy man alive now that he owns a Lamborghini Huracán.

Well, he doesn’t own it per se, but Lamborghini did gift him the swanky supercar so that he could auction it off for charity.

The RWD Huracán Coupe comes with a 5.2-liter V10 that’s good for 573 horsepower. It’ll snap to 60 in just 3.2 seconds. This all seems fitting for his Holiness who drives around in a 160hp Fiat 500L.

The gifted Lambo comes fully customized as well and is truly one of a kind. To pay tribute to Vatican City’s national colors, the Huracán comes painted in Bianco Monocerus with Giallo Tiberino accents. For those who don’t speak Italian, that’s white and yellow.

It also comes with the Pope’s autograph on the hood and a special blessing from the Holy Father himself. We assume Pope Francis channeled his inner Jesse from The Fast and the Furious with his blessing too. After all, we need to give thanks to the Heavenly Father for direct port nitrous injection and ball bearing turbos.

The unique Lambo will head to RM Sotheby’s on May 12, 2018. All proceeds from the auction will benefit four charities chosen by Pope Francis.

The first charity is the foundation “Aiuto alla Chiesa che Soffre” (Aid to the Church in Need). Its work mainly focuses around rebuilding communities in the Nineveh Plain of Iraq.

The second charity is the Pope John XXIII Community that helps women who are victims of trafficking and abuse.

Finally, the last two charities, GICAM and “Amici per il Centrafrica” (Friends for Central Africa), aim to help people in need throughout Africa.

Oddly enough this isn’t the first time an Italian car company has given his Holiness a car in which to sell for charity. Back in 2005, Pope John Paul II received the 400th Ferrari Enzo — the last one built. He went on to sell it at auction for a staggering six million dollars.

The Huracán probably won’t fetch that sort of price since it’s nowhere near as rare, but a couple million isn’t out of the question.

Hopefully, prior to the auction Pope Francis can slip out one night and experience a little test drive.
