But with a speed limit of just 9mph in the Vatican City there would be little use for the Pope to have such a powerful supercar.

A Lamborghini Huracan that was donated to Pope Francis has sold for £615,000 - nearly four times the supercar's usual asking price.

The car's new owner, whose identity has not been revealed, gets a vehicle signed and blessed by the Pope himself - after they dish out €715,000, or around C$1,092,377.

Kaspersky Lab moving core systems from Russian Federation to Switzerland
The Dutch government announced that the national government will no longer use anti-virus software from Kaspersky Lab. In fact, its Global Transparency Initiative was announced in October a year ago in response to the allegations.

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.

Instead, £415,000 from the sale will be donated to the Iraqi city of Nineveh, which was "besieged by Isis", Metro reports.

The special edition model pays tribute to the colors of the Vatican City flag, painted in Bianco Monocerus with Giallo Tiberino featuring on the Huracán's silhouette.

Fortnite's next series of Battle Star challenges have leaked ahead of their official reveal for Season 4's third week. There are seven challenges and the first challenge for Week 2 is to search for chests in Greasy Grove.

The Huracan RWD sits on diamond-finished 20 inch Giano wheels with Nero callipers.

This includes a 5.2-litre V10 engine that can power the auto to achieve 0-62mph in 3.4 seconds, and on to a top speed of 198mph. The pope put his diminutive signature on the car's hood, then put the vehicle up for auction to raise money for charity.

The Huracán RWD was donated to the Pope by Stefano Domenicali, chairman and chief executive officer of Automobili Lamborghini in November 2017 and was personally autographed by Francis.
