Who needs parking assistance when you have the parking abilities of German stunt driver, Ronny Wechselberger? Known as Ronny C Rock in Germany, he has set a new Guinness World Record for the tightest parallel parking with only 14 cm of space between the other two cars.

The stunt was performed in a Volkswagen Up!, which measures just 3.54m. The car is sandwiched between two other Up! models. Ronny parked in car into a 3.68m space which was electronically measured using a measuring tape and a laser device.

The new record beats the previous record marginally by 1 cm. The old record was set earlier this year by Chinese stunt driver, Han Yue, in a MINI Cooper. The timing between the two records was just 11 days.

Drivers, please don't try this at home!

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
