The Pope signed the car’s hood and then put it up for auction with Sotheby’s in Monaco in May. Unfortunately the final bidder failed to produce the $800,000 bid and the sale fell through. This time the Lamborghini will be up for grabs in a public raffle, with a minimum donation of $10 required to enter the competition which is also an online fundraising campaign.
The winner gets an airfare to Rome, accommodation in a four-star hotel and a private ceremony of receiving the new car keys “in the presence of Pope Francis and Lamborghini CEO, Stefano Domenicali” at the Vatican, according to the fundraising page.
Proceeds will go to rebuilding villages “that have been devastated by violence and war, assist victims of human trafficking, provide medical care and education to those living in poverty” by being distributed through Charities Aid Foundation of America, according to Crux.
