Popemobile (Italian: Papamobile) is an informal name for the specially designed motor vehicles used by the Pope during outdoor public appearances. The Popemobile was designed to allow the Pope to be more visible when greeting large crowds, not because he has ambulatory concerns. Pope John Paul II was the first to use a modified truck to greet supporters on his trip to Poland as the newly installed Pope.
The modified Mercedes-Benz M-Class sport utility vehicle Popemobile most often used by 265th and current Pope Benedict XVI when traveling abroad does not have a Warren Golf & Country Club sticker on the bonnet. But this version of transportation boasts of accoutrements that even the Popemobile does not have.
