What do you give the pope, who already has a lot of things? A rear-wheel drive Lamborghini Huracan, of course.

The Huracan was donated to Pope Francis by, yes, Lamborghini, who said Wednesday that it would be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to a papal charity. But not before a good photo op featuring Francis and the Lambo, which was painted to match Francis’s garments.


Francis also signed the car, in handwriting that gets progressively less legible, though that could’ve been the pen’s fault.

The Huracan starts at around $200,000, though I suspect this one will go for a bit more than that. The auction will take place next May.

Here’s the Lamborghini next to the Popemobile for some perspective.


And one more photo just for kicks.


Long live the pope Lamborghini.
