Chauffeur-driven or on two wheels? What Spain’s top politicians are driving

It has been revealed that Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy declares he owns no cars since he travels in official vehicles even in his free time.

Meanwhile PSOE leader Pedro Sanchez drives a low-key Peugeot 407 worth €4,592.

Podemos declares by far the least cars compared to any other party while boss Pablo Iglesias declares just one motorbike.

Renown petrolhead Albert Rivera of Ciudadanos drives a €13,500 VW Golf and also has a Yamaha FZ1 motorbike.

Curiously, vice general organisation secretary of the PP, Fernando Martinez Maillo, declared just one electric motorbike (a Vectrix) despite declaring a total of five garages.

The prize for the wildcard politician goes to PP secretary for Castellon Miguel Barrachina, who has declared his beloved Massey Ferguson tractor.

And, in second place, Tenerife deputy Pablo Matos whose favoured mode of transport is his 10.2m long boat.
