Pope Francis' Huracán: after the auction in Monte Carlo, 715 thousand euros donated to charity.

After being exhibited at the Lamborghini Museum, the Huracán RWD donated to Pope Francis was auctioned by RM Sotheby on May 12th at the Grimaldi Forum in Montecarlo for the sum of € 715,000.

The proceeds for charity

A Spanish company won the lot, but all proceeds from the sale will be go to the pope, who decided to allocate it to four charities: the Pontifical Right Foundation "Aid to the Church in Need"; the Community Pope John XXIII and two Italian associations that carry out activities in Africa: the Gicam of Professor Marco Lanzetta and Friends of Central Africa.

An exclusive example

This model of Huracán, unique in the world, was created by "Ad Personam", the Lamborghini personalization department. Characteristic of the exemplar is the "White Monocerus" livery with "Tiberino yellow" stripes that run along the bodywork, in homage to the colors of the Vatican City flag. A chromatic combination also echoed on the interior of the Lamborghini autographed by Pope Francis himself during the presentation ceremony that took place in the Vatican on November 27, 2017 in the presence of Stefano Domenicali, a member of the Company Management Board and two workers that contributed to the construction of the car.
