The custom Lamborghini Huracán given to Pope Francis to be sold for charity will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s in Monaco on May 12.

The car is being offered without reserve and the proceeds of the sale will be given to the Pope, who has been driven in a wide variety of “Popemobiles” – a Mercedes M-Class, Opel Ampera-e and a Fiat 500L. The money will then be disbursed to a number of good causes.

One of the beneficiaries will be the Pope John XXIII Community, which is dedicated to helping women who are victims of trafficking and other abuses. Amici per il Centrafrica – Friends of Central Africa – will also benefit.

The car is painted in Vatican colours. The auctioneers have not said how much they expect the car to bring at auction.
