New 'popemobiles' arrive
December 07, 2012
The Vatican has received 2 new "popemobiles" to replace the vehicles now in use.
The cars are made by Mercedes-Benz, customized for the Pope's use. The new model "popemobiles" are lower to the ground, to make it easier to transport a vehicle by plane. When the Pope travels abroad, one "popemobile" is usually sent in advance to transport the Pope when he arrives.
