Pope Francis signing the one-off Lamborghini Huracan in November last year

It was donated to His Holiness Pope Francis in a similar fashion to the Ferrari Enzo his predecessor received many years ago.

A one-off Lamborghini Huracan created for Pope Francis has raised €715,000 (£630,000) for charity at auction. The vehicle was also signed by the Pope himself.

The two-seater supercar, which would typically be wroth around £155,000, was entered into RM Sotheby's Monte Carlo sale held over the weekend.

The white and gold vehicle, which was blessed and signed by the pontiff, was listed in "as-new condition" having remained in storage since it was given to him in November previous year.

The supercar, which was specially prepared by Lamborghini's Ad Personam personalisation department, wore the white-and-gold colours of the Vatican City flag.

It has been fitted with 20-inch alloy wheels and has leather seats and features as 5.2-litre V10 engine which generates a staggering 570bhp.

In a press release, Lamborghini explained the vehicle was sold at the RM Sotheby auction this weekend in Monaco.

This gives the Italian supercar a 0-62mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 198mph.

Proceeds from the car's sale will go to four charities selected by the Pope, with a focus on helping women and children.
