It’s definitely a step up from the pope-mobile, but the pontiff won’t be using his gift of a Lamborghini on the tree-shaded roads of the Vatican gardens.

The donated Huracan, in the colours of the Vatican flag, comes with a price tag of more than 180,000 euros.

It was signed by the pope outside his Vatican residence and will be auctioned by Sotheby’s, with proceeds given by the pontiff to charity.

The Papal blessing should ensure the special edition car sells for far more than its original value.

The Pope’s blessing of the car is likely to ensure that it sells for far more than its original value.

When he was given a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in 2013, it sold a year later at auction in Paris for 277,000 euros while a leather Harley-Davidson motorcycle jacket, also signed by Francis, sold for over 65,000 euros.
