A mashup of the electronica song "God is a DJ" by Faithless and the Popemobile, created by Dutch artist Olaf Mooij.

The dark blue 1983 Ford Sierra has 14 woofers, tweeters, and other loudspeakers.

Wrote Laura Cochrane in Make magazine, "Not only does the car have a professional-quality Beyma sound system, but it's also got a DJ setup, with a place to set up turntables and a mixer on the roof of the car. There's a hole in the roof as well, where the DJ can stand and mix."

"The idea came to Mooij, 53, when he heard the song and then thought of the infamous vehicle that the Pope makes public appearances in — a normal-looking car in front with a bulletproof glass, pope-sized display case in the back."

"Though it's street legal, Mooij notes that driving around can be dangerous because of how distracting it is to other drivers. The people most noticeably affected when in the presence of the DJ Mobile are 'the guys with big car hi-fi sound systems,' says Mooij, who get 'pale with jealousy.'"
