Pope My Ride

Zooming through the years with the man in charge

When Pope Francis lands Tuesday in Washington, D.C., he will be shuttled around in his modified Jeep Wrangler popemobile.

Since 1930, when the Vatican received the first popemobile as a gift from Mercedes-Benz, the famous vehicle has gone through quite the transition. While most of the vehicles have been almost exclusively modified Mercedes, there have also been Lincolns, Fiats, Jeeps, and even a bus!

See the evolution below.
