Pope Benedict XVI, who was given a V-8 Volvo XC90 last June, will now ride in a custom Mercedes-Benz G-Class made over the last two years in "close consultation with the Vatican," Mercedes says. The G500-based Popemobile has been designed with fair weather usage in mind. The Vaticanmystic (no, we're not making that up) white-on-white Mercedes has a folding windscreen and hand-rails for stability as he presents himself to those in St. Peter's Square.
HA! Popemobile is a funny little word. The custom open-top g-wagon is perry cool, i think it would sell in sunny socal. I can see young hollywood types driving that around.
