Pope Francis has sold his Lamborghini and donated the money to good causes. 

The two-seater Huracan is typically worth around $300,000, however, was sold for over $1,210,000.

The supercar can get up to 300k,/h, somewhat wasted in the Vatican, which has a speed limit of 15km/h.

The Pope decided to sell the car and donate the proceeds to charitable causes. 

He signed and blessed the bonnet before the RM Sotheby's Monte Carlo sale at the weekend. 

Roughly $845,000 will be donated to the Iraqi city of Nineveh, which was attacked by ISIS.

The remaining money will be split among three other charities. 

The Lamborghini is painted the colours of the Vatican City flag; Bianco Monocerus white with Gold Giallo tiberino stripes.

It has 20-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, a v10 engine and can get to 100km/h in 3.4 seconds.
