The car maker made him a gift of one of its cars. And since he's not a fancy car guy, Francis plans to put it up for auction to raise money for women who are victims of ISIS. A normal Lamborghini costs close to a quarter-million dollars. This may auction for more since it has the pope's signature on the hood. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
