Holy Rollers: The 7 Coolest Popemobiles

Mercedes-Benz Nurburg 460 Pullman

Years used: 1930–1960
Used by: Pope Pius XI
Complex says: The first-ever Popemobile was, by our estimations, the most luxurious. Using Mercedes-Benz's top-of-the-line sedan, the Nurburg 460, as a base, MB's engineers put together the most opulently designed limo ever seen. Pope Pius' ride was delivered with a silk-covered rear seat and a never-before-seen "control panel" that allowed His Holiness to instruct the driver from the comfort of the back seat.
