Popemobile revisited

Gufy presents a different Popemobile. The Mercedes Benz ML 430 was introduced in 2002 and used by John Paul in his final years and then by Benedict. Note that this is completely enclosed in bullet proof glass - a feature that was seen as necessary in the Pope's cars after the 1981 attempt on John Paul's life (though the Pope occasionally travels in open air cars under more controlled circumstances).
