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
