The pontiff plans to auction his new Lamborghini Huracan – painted especially for him in papal gold and white – to raise money for charity. Francis received the Italian supercar on Wednesday morning at a ceremony in Vatican City.

He blessed it, signed its hood, and promptly handed it over to Sotheby’s, which will auction off the Huracan on his behalf.

The money will go towards helping displaced Christians in Iraq, victims of trafficking and prostitution, and Italian charities working with women and children in countries in Africa.

Smart investment. Now the rich will want to purchase the car for historical reasons probably doubling the original price that has increased the amount of lira for the Pope’s charities.
