Want To Rent The Popes Limited Edition Lamborghini? Well Now You Can

And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great company.” —Genesis 50:9

In this case, the very great company is Pope Francis and Automobili Lamborghini, and the chariot is a 610-horsepower, one-off Huracán with a top speed of 202 miles per hour. A product of the Italian automaker’s Ad Personam customization program, the supercar came in Vatican City colours, “Bianco Monocerus” white with “Gallo Tiberino” gold leaf accents, and was presented to the pope last November.

On Saturday, Rent Car Deluxe, a Spanish rental car agency, bought it for 809,375 euros ($960,797) at an RM Sotheby’s auction in Monte Carlo.

Proceeds from the special edition exotic are slated for reconstruction of Christian communities along the Nineveh Plain near the Tigris River in Iraq, among other charities. And in keeping with the spirit of the sale, Rent Car Deluxe plans to donate future rental proceeds to charity as well. Victor Masip, the company’s marketing and communications director, says there will be no fixed cost for the Huracán rental: “We want people to suggest a price.” Expect to offer at least 3,500 euros per day, the current rate of its Huracán Performante—and that one has no any holy provenance.
