[[ formattedDate ]]
Automobili Lamborghini has produced a unique and special specimen of Huracán RWD that it donated to His Holiness Pope Francis in the presence of the Company’s top executives.
The car will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s on 12 May 2018, with the proceeds delivered directly to the Holy Father, who decided to allocate them to the Pontifical Foundation “Aiuto alla Chiesa che Soffre” (Aid to the Church in Need), the Pope John XXIII Community, GICAM headed by Dr. Marco Lanzetta (hand surgeon) and “Amici per il Centrafrica” (Friends of Central Africa).
The Lamborghini Huracán RWD donated to the Pope was produced by Ad Personam, the Company’s customization department. It is painted Bianco Monocerus (white) with Giallo Tiberino (yellow) stripes that run along the body in homage to the colors of the flag of Vatican City.
The ceremony of presentation to Pope Francis was held in the Vatican, attended by Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. Also present were a delegation of the Company’s Management Board and two of the technicians who worked on building the car.
