    The Vatican plans to auction a Lamborghini car that was given to Pope Francis as a gift.

    The head of the Catholic church, who usually prefers more modest cars like Fiats and Fords, was presented with a special edition Lamborghini Huracan on Wednesday.

    The vehicle costs around 180,000 euros (over $210,000), but with the Pope's autograph it will be much more valuable.

    The sports car will be auctioned by Sotheby's, with the money from the sale being invested into the reconstruction of Iraqi Nineveh, a region where Christians used to live in the past.
