Pope Francis puts his Lamborghini up for auction

Pope Francis has put his custom-built 2018 Lamborghini Huracan up for auction for a second time with all proceeds to go towards rebuilding villages devastated by violence and war, according to Crux. Lamborghini donated the white vehicle with gold stripes - to match the white and yellow of the Vatican City flag - to the Pope in November 2017. 

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.
