Pope Francis‘ custom Lamborghini Huracan RWD, which was gifted to him last year as part of Lamborghini‘s “Ad Personam” program, will be put up for auction at RM Sotheby’s Monaco sale on May 12. The special edition supercar features a “Bianco Monocerus” white paint job that matches the Pope’s white cassock and gold stripes and detailing in honor of the Vatican City flag. A unique set of black and silver 20-inch wheels complements the Nero brake calipers, while Bianco Leda Sportivo leather and Giallo stitching on the seats deck out the interior. Most notable of all, however, is the fact that His Holiness Pope Francis blessed the one-off car and immortalized it with his signature at the hood.

Estimated to rake in $303,000 to $425,000 USD, all the proceeds from the auction will be donated to charity — 70 percent to the Iraqi city of Neneveh, which has been besieged by ISIS; 10 percent to Amici per il Centrafrica Onlus; 10 percent to Groupe International Chirurgiens Amis de la Main; and 10 percent to Pope John XXIII Community Association. Head over the RM Sotheby’s website listing for more details and let us know what you think of the Pope’s Lamborghini in the comments below.
