Pope Francis was gifted a brand new, luxury Lamborghini Wednesday at the Vatican — but the $200,000 Huracán will be auctioned off by Sotheby’s for charity.
The pope, who blessed the flashy car, has chosen three charities that will benefit from the auction, including one geared towards the restoration of Christian communities in Iraq that were destroyed by the Islamic State terror group.
Lamborghini execs presented the pontiff with the sports car, which comes with papal yellow-gold detailing– and a top speed of about 201 mph.
Base prices for the Huracan, which was first introduced in 2014, usually start at around 183,000 euros ($217,000.) A special edition built for a papal charity would be expected to fetch far more at auction.
A Harley motorcycle jacket signed by Francis sold for nearly $68,000.
An iPad that Pope Francis once owned sold for $30,500.
