The world record for tightest parallel parking job has been broken for the fifth time in two years. A guy in China did it in a Mini Cooper last week, and SMASHED the old record of 8.66 inches, which was just set last month. The NEW record is 5.91 inches. Yes, that's the TOTAL amount of extra space he had to work with. Guinness uploaded a video of it to their YouTube page. You can't park in a space that small the NORMAL way. He had to use the E-brake and spin in sideways.
