Watch the New Guinness World Record For Tightest Parallel Parking [video]

Back in May, Chinese stunt driver Han Yue squeezed a MINI Cooper between two MINI Cooper Clubman’s with a mere 15 cm to spare and the new Guinness World Record was born.

But records are meant to be broken!

Ronny Wechselberger in a tiny three-door Volkswagen Up! has set a new Guinness World Record for the tightest parallel parking. Between the other two cars he managed to leave only 14 cm (5.51 in) of space.

The three-door Volkswagen Up! is 3.54 metres long and the space between two other Up! models was just 3.68 metres.

Take a look at the video below to see how Ronny successfully parks the little Up! into this very tight spot. Impressive driving skills and surely something you should not try yourself…
