(VATICAN TV/CNN) - Pope Francis got a snazzy new Lamborghini on Wednesday.

The special edition Lamborghini Huracan was a gift to the Pope.

And while these flashy wheels might look even better driven by the Pope, it's not meant for him to drive.

The Vatican will auction off the vehicle to raise money for several charities.

Pope Francis even signed the hood of the car, hoping to raise the value.

This isn't a first for the Vatican - the Pope helped auction off a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in 2014.

The motorcycle went for more than 10 times its normal sales price, raking in $284,000.
