The finest luxury car receives the holiest signature.
Enjoying the tag as the finest supercar ever produced by Italian luxury line Lamborghini, a 200,000 dollars-worth Huracan jacked-up its own value as its hood received Pope Francis’ signature in line with RM Sotheby’s auction.
Since its posting in the official Lamborghini page in Facebook, it attracted huge interest with many speculating that the monstrous car will be the new Popemobile.
Francis got around his native Buenos Aires on public transport and has long railed against people who buy the latest model cars or cellphones. As pope, he uses a blue FordFocus inside the Vatican walls, and he has made a statement on all his foreign trips by shunning fancy, bullet-proof SUVs and opting instead for modest Fiats or KIAs.
Some of the funds raised from the auction will go to rebuilding homes, churches and public buildings in Iraq’s Nineveh Plains that were devastated during three years of fighting by the Islamic State group. The Vatican said the aim is to allow Christians who were forced to flee Nineveh “to finally return to their roots and recover their dignity.
However, the yellow and white supercar will be auctioned next year by RM Sotheby with its proceeds going to various charitable institutions chosen by the Pope himself.
According to the showbiz website PEP.ph, the luxury supercar wad designed by Lamborghini’s own personalization department Ad Personam.
It is designed high white (Bianco Monocerus) with yellow stripes (Giallo Tiberino) as a tribute to the Vatican City’s flag.
Though the Pope’s action came into the dismay of many who wished it will be the next Popemobile, the supercar’s power will surely deny the advatages of being one.
Imagine a V10-powered ‘Popemobile’ with a tremendous 571-horsepower engine and 540 Nm torque being the official vehicle of the Pope while waving hands to his spectators!
The Pope’s actions set a good example to all of the holy priests and men all over the globe to be charitable and help others in need.
