Automobili Lamborghini donates a customized Huracán to Pope Francis that will be auctioned for charity

 

Automobili Lamborghini unveiled a one of a kind version of the Huracán RWD to be
auctioned for charity as a donation to His Holiness Pope Francis.

The car will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s on May 12, 2018, with all proceeds
donated to the Holy Father who will allocate them accordingly:

 

  • 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 aim of the project is 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 10th 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 donated to the Pope is created in homage to
the Vatican, also thanks to the idea promoted by the agency Riptide, Milan.
The car was realized by Lamborghini’s customization department “Ad
Personam”. The special edition model pays tribute to the colours of the flag of
Vatican City, painted in Bianco Monocerus with Giallo Tiberino decorated
alongside the Huracán’s silhouette.

The ceremony of the vehicle presentation was held in the Vatican in the
presence of Pope Francis and Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. They were joined by a part of
the Company’s Management Board and two technicians who built the special
car.
