Fiat 500 Sets Tightest Parallel Parking Record

Written By:

Parallel parking is a nightmare for most drivers. Yet, some fancy breaking records and setting new ones trying to parallel park.

Alistair Moffatt, a professional stunt driver has set a new Guinness record for parallel parking a Fiat 500, with a gap of just 7.5cm to spare. The previous record was set in November last year, with a gap of 8cm.

The new record is still waiting confirmation though. If the measurements turn out to be accurate, this will be a new record.

The record was attempted using a Fiat 500C 1.2 Cult, which managed to park in between a Fiat 500S and a Fiat 500C Colour Therapy special edition.

The man behind the wheel of the record setting car, Moffatt says, "It's wonderful to have my record back! With the gap getting ever smaller, finding the right vehicle is increasingly important."

"The lightweight, agility, dimensions and parking-friendly shape of the Fiat 500 makes it perfect to getting into even the tightest parking spots."
