The New High-Tech 'Popemobile' 4

We all know that god protects The Holy Father, but just in case, Pope Benedict XVI has a new hi-tech ride for his tour of the UK. The new "Popemobile" boasts: an air filtration system to protect against biological and chemical attacks, a bomb-proof undercarriage, 3-inch-thick explosive proof glass, and a top speed of 160mph. Made from a modified Mercedes-Benz M-Class 'green petrol' SUV, The Pope's new truck comes with a big pricetag: more than £200,000. I can't wait to find one of these in Fallout 4.

    Who pays for this shit? The british taxpayer I'll bet.

    Pedo-pope should stick his jesus fairy-tales up his arse and go swim in the coffers of blood-money he keeps under the vatican.

    Great security, but how's it's center of gravity doing? Let's go pope-mobile tipping! P.S. Love the ghetto labelmaker stickers one the dashboard. P.P.S Why does he need a window on the back? P.P.P.S. Who cares about seeing the pope in his "mobile" anymore, just use a normal limo like the rest of the celebrities you self-centered .
