A Couple of weeks ago MINI set a Guinness world record for the tightest parallel parking job at the launch event for the MINI Chinese Job special edition. The car, in the hands of stunt driver Han Yue, drifted into a tight parking spot between two other MINIs, a space of just 15 cm (5.91 inch) longer than the car. As cool as this stunt looks, and as difficult it is to master it, it is very stupid, because what’s the point of parking in some place if you can’t get out of it?!
Never mind. We’re talking about a cool driving trick that is very fun to watch, so we better stop being so pedantic. MINI just released a behind the scene video of the event for those who want to know how it’s done.Do not try this at home, unless you have three MINIs to spare.
