Lamborghini made a sports car especially for Pope Francis—but it seems he’s going to stick with the popemobile.

The Italian sports car maker created a special Huracan for His Holiness that he received at the Vatican on Wednesday. The paint job repped the Vatican’s flag colors with papal gold all over the ride, according to ABC News. With a big grin, Pope Francis signed “Francesco” on the hood.

The car was donated to the Vatican and will be auctioned off through Sotheby’s. The money raised will go toward a number of charities the pope has selected, including one that “helps Christians who are living as refugees in Kurdistan to return to their communities in Iraq.” 

Start saving those pennies: the auction will go down on May 12, 2018.
