Those with half-a-million dollars to spend on a car could bid on a custom Lamborghini that belongs to Pope Francis.

The   Huracán RWD Coupé  was given to the Pope from Lamborghini last year, and he plans to auction it off via Sotheby's, according to the Vatican. Esquire reports 70 percent of the proceeds will go to Nineveh, a city in Iraq that is under siege by ISIS.
