New Mercedes M-Class Popemobile Delivered to Pope Benedict XVI

Mercedes has delivered a new M-Class Popemobile to Pope Benedict XVI at a special ceremony at the Vatican. The new M-Class Popemobile was handed over by Dr Dieter Zetsche continuing a tradition, which lasts for 80 years now.

“It is an honour for Mercedes-Benz to be accompanying His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI on his future journeys with our new Popemobile”, said Zetsche at the handover of the new Popemobile in Rome. “As such, we are continuing our long-standing partnership with the Vatican. For more than 80 years now, Popes have been able to rely on the quality, safety and comfort of our Mercedes-Benz vehicles.”

Compared to the previous model, the new M-Class Popemobile, the dome has been extended significantly, providing an improved amount of space and more convenient entry access. Thanks to a larger glass panel, the public has a better view of the Pope now. The luxury throne bears the embroidered coat of arms of the Holy Father.
