Imagine trying this in a tight parking spot in the city:

Yep. We found it pretty impressive too, considering the driver, Ronny Wechselberger, fit his car in a space just 10.24 inches longer than the vehicle. The attempt actually happened in April, but Guinness just made the video available.

Also, Wechselberger broke the Guinness World Record record with that attempt only have it broken, last week, by Zhang Hua, who squeezed his car into a space only 9.45 inches longer than the vehicle.
