Lamborghini donates special vehicle to Pope Francis. What he's doing with it

Lamborghini has created a one-off special edition of its Huracan supercar for Pope Francis.

As things go, it might bring $300,000 to $500,000, perhaps as much as $850,000, on the regular auction circuit.

Vatican: Famously frugal in his tastes, Pope Francis normally favours modest Fiats and Fords when he is driven around on trips overseas, but on Wednesday he took possession of something a little classier - a Lamborghini supercar.

Pope Francis received a gift in a form of a white-and-yellow Lamborghini on Wednesday from the luxury auto maker's officials.

The Pope Lambo and the Pope Mobile. Instead, it will be auctioned by Sotheby's in London, according to The Associated Press and Fortune magazine. He was accompanied by members of the Lamborghini board and some vehicle technicians. Since the humble Pope has no business riding around in a six-figure sports vehicle, the Huracan will be auctioned off to benefit a number of charities.

Pope Francis condemned on Thursday inequality in healthcare, particularly in rich countries, saying governments had a duty to protect all citizens. The Vatican said Wednesday that the aim is to allow displaced Christians "to finally return to their roots and recover their dignity".

Other funds will go to charities that help women who are trafficked and forced into prostitution, and those that provide medical care in Africa. The project is held under the patronage of the "Community Pope Giovanni XXIII".
