Pope Francis sells for over $1 million
Lamborghini gave Pope Francis a Huracán LP580-2 painted in the white-and-gold colors of the Vatican last November. Not surprisingly, Pope Francis decided to sell the car to generate money for charity rather than keeping it for himself.
The Papal Lamborghini recently rolled across the block at an RM Sotheby’s auction and had a pre-auction speculation expected of $430,000-$600,000.
The final sale price makes the roughly $200,000 sticker price of a normal Huracán LP580-2 seem almost reasonable by comparison. Granted, this car had the benefit of a very famous owner, one who not only signed the car, but also blessed it. Proceeds from the sale will go to multiple charities, including a group working to rebuild villages in Iraq’s Nineveh Plain, an organization helping abused and trafficked women, and two groups helping women and children in central Africa.
Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) will use part of the funds to help with its work rebuilding Christian settlements on the Nineveh Plains destroyed by Islamic State (IS).
Amici per il Centrafrica Onlus (a world poverty lay association), Groupe International Chirurgiens Amis de la Main (a foundation supporting various nations in Africa and Asia) and the Pope John XXIII Community Association will also receive some of the raised cash.
