The old Citroën "Lictoria Sex" driven by Pius XI is to be exhibited in the Vatican Museums
The link between the Popes and the car has fascinated many ever since the beginning of the modern age and the growth of modern transportation.
A new addition is about to be made to the collection of papal saloons. The beautiful reddish purple and gold coloured Citroën "Lictoria Sex" which Pius XI occasionally used to get around the Vatican City.
Pope Pius XI's car had sat for many years in storage, forgotten, but now it will finally go on show for visitors to feast their eyes on.
The car, which was donated in 1930, has to date only been driven for 2 and a half kilometres each year.
