Sick of giving up those convenient parking spots because you don’t know whether your car will fit? Well, Fiat may just have the answer, and it comes in the form of their 500 model
We’re not going to talk about reversing cameras or that automated parallel parking rubbish, though — globally recognized stunt driver Alastair Moffatt has claimed the Guinness World Record for the world’s tightest parallel park, behind the wheel of a Fiat 500C.
Alastair was able to slide the Fiat between two parked cars, into a gap only 7.5cm longer than the car. This was done with a completely standard car, with only the ESC disabled to allow the car to be controlled with the handbrake, and higher tyre pressures. Alastair also utilized a steering knob to help with the rapid wheel work required.
You might not be willing to engage in such antics, but may at least rest assured that if you find yourself behind the wheel of a 500, you should have no problem squeezing the tiny vehicle into those pesky probably-too-small parking spots.
