Lamborghini gave the car to Pope Francis

Last November, Lamborghini gave Pope Francis a Huracán RWD customized in the white and gold colors of Vatican City. Unsurprisingly, Pope Francis announced it would be auctioned for charity, and that auction occurred this past week. The car rolled across the block of an RM Sotheby's auction and brought in 715,000 euros, which at current exchange rates is about $857,000.

There's 1,485 horsepower on offer. Plus some kit.

A little while ago we wrote about the Dodge Viper factory being recommissioned into a museum that will hold the historic cars originally evicted from the Walter P. Chrysler museum. Now, what happened to the last Viper that factory built? It's getting auctioned off, in good company.

Plus, a famous pair of tuners in Shelby and Hennessey

Last week brought us quite a wide variety of automotive news nuggets, and judging by the response of our own readership, the Jeep Wrangler pickup truck led the way. It's not expected to hit the sales floor until April of 2019, which means we've all got an entire year to wait, but that just means we have lots of time to anticipate its arrival.

‘The nicest example known in the world,’ it's going to be expensive

What would you pay for the most perfect Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 in the world? Not a nut-and-bolt restoration, not a customized one, but a factory original 1978 FJ40 that's spent all of its life in good hands. Right now, it seems the price must be six-figure.

It had automatic braking and light-up wheels and tires

Imagine a vehicle with automatic braking, remote operation, self-opening doors and a big screen on the dash. You're probably imaging a Tesla Model X, but we're actually talking about a car called the Golden Sahara II, a custom car originally built in the 1950s, and it's going for auction at Mecum's event in Indianapolis.

Gullwing last changed hands over 50 years ago

Some sources regard the mid-1950s Mercedes-Benz 300SL "Gullwing" the first supercar. When it was introduced in 1954, it was certainly unlike anything else, and the 212-horsepower direct injection straight six made it the fastest production car of its day. With a rich motorsport history and the still amazing gullwing doors, the 300SL holds a special place among classic Mercedes-Benz coupes.
