His Holiness the Pope has a new Lamborghini

Pope Francis has been given a godly V10 supercar. Amazingly, he’s not keeping it

Pope Francis has a new Lamborghini. A bespoke, one-off, striped Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2, to be precise. That’s right. The head of the Roman-Catholic faith, on speed dial to the all-seeing one upstairs, has a purist’s rear-drive Lambo. Hallelujah.

However, the Pope didn’t spend £155,400 on a white wedge of V10-poowered loveliness. In fact, in was donated to him (Him?) free of charge, by Lamborghini. Is Sant’Agata hoping divine intervention will make the new Urus SUV the best super-4x4 ever?

Unlikely. Actually, it’s a donation for charitable causes, much like when Ferrari donated the Pope the final Enzo ever made, to be auctioned for funds to help survivors of the 2003 tsunami. This Huracán, as signed by his Holiness, will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s on 12 May 2018.

The funds generated will be allocated by the Pope himself to causes including rebuilding homes and Christian places of worship in Iraq, helping victims of human trafficking, and two Italian-based African aid charities. The winning bidder, meanwhile, gets a Huracán RWD wearing a Vatican flag-inspired paint job, and the best excuse ever to waive any speeding tickets…
