Boris Johnson car: The Toyota Previa –How Boris’ new look doesn’t extend to his car

is still the hot favourite in the Tory leadership race against Jeremy Hunt. The former London Mayor was previously known for his iconic scarecrow hair and untucked shirts but his new girlfriend, spin doctor , has been widely credited with smartening him up. While Boris has lost weight and had his mop of wild locks has been severely chopped, it seems there’s that is yet to be made over - his car.

Children’s books in French including a copy of Tintin and the Blue Lotus are among items that have been left in the rundown people carrier.

A Sports Direct and large Ikea shopping bag are filled with items left by the passenger seats.

The vehicle, which was built in the mid-90s shows some wear and tear and there are mud stains on one of the seats.

The car’s metallic green exterior isn’t in the best nick either.

The dusty bonnet could do with a good hose down, as could the motor’s bird mess speckled windscreen.

The Tory frontrunner seems to have a soft spot for the banger which has been driving for years.

This isn’t the first time Mr Johnson’s car has come under scrutiny.

While it is not known if it was Mr Johnson behind the wheel of the green Toyota when the car was parked, last month the vehicle was slapped with an £80 parking fine.

The ticket on the Toyota, left outside the south London home he shares with partner Carrie Symonds, was issued on May 31 for parking across two pay-and-display bays.

Will Boris win the Tory leadership vote?

Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt are now going head to head in the final stretch of the Tory leadership battle.

The fervent Brexiteer will face Hunt is a series of 16 hustings across Britain ahead of the final vote.

Both Boris and Mr Hunt will make their case at these hustings in a bid to win over Tory Party members before the final vote.

Conservative Party members will receive their postal ballots in mid-July.

The deadline votes is expected to be in the weekend ending July 21.

While Mr Johnson still remains the favourite with bookmakers his lead was shaken after neighbours called police to his home following a noisy row with his girlfriend at the weekend.

Bookies Betfair currently has Boris Johnson at 2/9 to win and Jermey Hunt at 9/2.

Betfair Spokesperson Katie Baylis said: “While Boris is still the odds-on favourite at 2/9, with Hunt at 9/2, there’s no doubt a weekend of controversy is staring to have an impact on his odds.”

“When they were confirmed as the final two on Thursday night Boris was at odds of 1/10 on Betfair Exchange, but those odds then went out to 1/3 on Saturday as news broke about the incident on Friday morning with his partner. His refusal to take place in the Sky debate tomorrow doesn’t appear to be doing him any favours and what looked like a one horse race could develop into a proper competition for punters if controversy continues to plague him through the contest.”
