The one-off model of the Lamborghini Huracán rear-wheel drive, donated to Pope Francis on 27 November 2017, has been sold for the price of 715,000 Euro during the RM Sotheby’s auction in Monte Carlo’s Grimaldi Forum.

All proceeds received during the auction will be donated to the Holy Father directly, who will allocate them accordingly to diverse projects:

- The reconstruction of the Nineveh Plain under the patronage of the Pontifical Foundation “Aiuto alla Chiesa che Soffre” (Aid to the Church in Need). The project aims to ensure the return of the Christian community to the Nineveh Plain in Iraq by rebuilding their homes, public edifices and places of worship.

- The Pope John XXIII Community, which is dedicated to helping women who are victims of trafficking and other abuses on the tenth anniversary of the passing of Father Oreste Benzi and the 50th anniversary (in 2018) of the founding of the community, “Progetto Casa Papa Francesco” (Pope Francis House Project).

- Two Italian associations that carry out activities mainly in Africa: GICAM, headed by Dr. Marco Lanzetta, and “Amici per il Centrafrica” (Friends for Central Africa), have worked for many years in the region on initiatives dedicated primarily to aiding women and children in need.

The Lamborghini Huracán RWD was realized by Lamborghini’s customization department “Ad Personam”. The special edition model pays tribute to the colors of the Vatican City flag, painted in Bianco Monocerus with Giallo Tiberino featuring on the Huracán’s silhouette.
