Earlier this week, Pope Benedict XVI revealed that he would like his next car to be an all-electric model. Yep, His Holiness is looking to lower his carbon footprint. How noble.

But if you're thinking there's a chance the Pope will get chauffeured around in a Prius or a Chevy Volt, think again. He has a tradition to uphold. Since 1930, Popes have been driven in the best cars in the world. They've had their pick of Benzs, Land Rovers, and even cars that weren't meant for transporting people.
