Subaru BRZ Sets World Record for Tightest 360° Spin

Subaru BRZ Spin 600x360 at Subaru BRZ Sets World Record for Tightest 360° Spin

Boasting about how easy your car spins may sound like the wrong way of promoting it, but in the case of the Subaru BRZ that is actually a good thing. The rear-wheel-drive sports car has just set a Guinness World Record for the tightest 360° spin at Autosport International’s Live Action Arena.

This stunt showcased the drivability and the agility, precision, and handling prowess of the sports car – qualities that allowed stunt-driver Alastair Moffatt to spin the car between two obstacles in a 2.25 meters gap, breaking the old record which was set in 2014 at 2.5 meters. This driver also has other records under his belt such as ‘Tightest Reverse Parallel Park’ and ‘Tightest Parallel Park’.

The exclusive features that enabled Subaru BRZ to pull off this seemingly pointless stunt include the car’s low center of gravity, its responsive 2.0 liter 197bhp engine, and above all its unique chassis and suspension setup that allows for the most controllable, most engaging oversteers in this class at least. They had also switched off the traction control and disengaged  the ABS.

Alastair Moffatt commented: “The Subaru BRZ was the perfect car in which to do it; light, highly manoeuvrable and easy to control. It’s great to have another record to my name”.
