Last week, his holiness, Pope Francis, who’s the first Latino pope ever (air horn 3x), got a custom-made, special edition Lamborghini Huracán RWD.
The new Pope-Mobile was donated directly to Pope Francis by Lamborghini. The company gifted the pope a $200,000 whip with a V10 engine that can produce a horsepower of up to 600 . At top speeds of 200 miles per hour, the Pope could theoretically cross all of Vatican City in under a minute.
The Lambo was handmade to custom specifications.
The car was tricked out in pure, heavenly-white with halo-gold accents as a tribute to the Vatican City flag. It was designed at Lamborghini’s custom body shop called “Ad Personam,” which is Latin for “on an individual basis.” That name seems fitting as members of the clergy frequently use Latin during mass. Does “in nomeni patri et fili spiritus sancti” sound familiar? That’s Latin, baby.
Before drag racing around Vatican City, the Pope and his entourage had to bless the new whip.

Talk about Lamborghini Mercy! Kanye West would be proud. Also, it seems like the Pope runs with a bigger clique than all of G.O.O.D. Music.
Of course, the custom paint job wouldn’t be complete without a little graffiti by his holiness.
Nothing more baller than signing a Lambo in permanent marker. I wonder what his tag name is?
Don’t worry, you won’t see the Pope zooming past you anytime soon. The church will be auctioning off the supercar to raise money for various charities.
The pope gets a Lambo!

Although it has permanent marker on the hood, and doesn’t run on holy water, it’s still a pretty cool car for any collector. Funds raised from the auction will go to several charitable efforts, including helping rebuild Christian communities destroyed by the Islamic State group in Iraq.
Looks like Pope Francis is definitely #blessed. 😇🙏🏽
