  • VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis now has his own mini popemobile after getting a good deal on a used car that he plans to drive himself.

    Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Ciro Benedettini, says Francis accepted the 1984 Renault 4, donated for free by a priest in northern Italy who used it to visit poor parishioners. The four-door car, in papal white, is manual shift and has a new engine. Benedettini told The AP on Wednesday: “The pope intends to drive it.”

    The donor, the 69-year-old Rev. Renzo Zocca, says he took Francis for a short drive in the car at the Vatican on Saturday and that Francis told him he knows how to drive it.

    Zocca said he thinks Francis will use it for short commutes on Vatican grounds.
