Disney Pixar – Cars 2: Pope Pinion IV & Popemobile

Quite relevant I thought as we have a new Pope in His Holiness Pope Francis I just recently.

What I really like about this model is the fact that it has been based on a Alfa Romeo – possibly a 1750 but more akin to a Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA 1600.

it is a very cool model – and all very Italian as well – the Papal white works well. Add the religious overtones on the front grill, and the wording on the tyres, it is all very tongue in cheek.

Complimented by the Popemobile, this is a good little set we have here, however to the child, I am not sure if this will be a go-er TBH. I am not sure how they will relate to the character, but yet with many of these actual castings it seems destined to be aimed squarely at the collector.

One thought on “Disney Pixar – Cars 2: Pope Pinion IV & Popemobile

  1. I am amazed that Mattel continues to churn out new CARS 2 castings. Are they still selling alright in your area ? Over here, we're still swamped with early CARS 2 releases. Nothing sells, apart from “Flash” McQueen, and that's probably parents wanting to replace the one their kid lost.

    However, seeing your photos, the Pope is definitely a BMW 02-series, or an early 2800 CS. Probably a nod to Ratzinger's origins.
