Pope Francis Tiny Popemobile Sells For $300k

A used Fiat just sold for $300,000 -- and, no, this is not an April Fools' joke.
Auction site Charitybuzz just sold one of the Fiat 500 Lounge hatchbacks that Pope Francis cruised around in during his trip to NYC and D.C. last year.
Its new owner, ironically, is a Jewish businessman named Miles Nadal.
Nadal tells TMZ he won't actually be driving the car -- it'll go in his personal automotive museum along with the other 130 cars and motorcycles he's got in there.
And get this ... the car purchase comes with a free holy blessing! We're told Nadal will meet with either Cardinal Timothy Dolan at St. Patrick's Cathedral or the Archdiocese of New York to bless the Fiat.
Retail value for a non-Pope Fiat is about $24,000.
Mazel tov, Miles!
