Isuzu D-Max popemobile

Isuzu Kenya has made a Papal automobile to be used by Pope Francis on his first tour in Africa.

The carmaker issued a statement on Facebook concerning the custom made Isuzu D-Max popemobile.

"The Isuzu D-Max popemobile was designed with the security and comfort of Pope in mind. The double-cab was customised for the pope’s chair and additional seats for his companions. A shield made of plexiglass was placed in front to protect the pope from the elements. Sturdy railings were attached to the sides of the vehicle for the pope and his security personnel to hold on to while in transit. The pope’s emblem emblazoned with a banig design adds a Filipino touch to the car."

Pope Francis will begin his African tour in Nairobi, Kenya, today.

He is also set to visit Uganda and the Central African Republic.
