Chinese stunt driver Han Yue has claimed a new Guinness World Record for the tightest parallel parking job.

Piloting a MINI Cooper Chinese Job special edition, Yue was able to slide the car into a parking spot that was just 15 cm (5.91 in) longer than the vehicle itself. This beats the previous record set by Patrik Folco who managed to slide into a spot that was just 22 cm (8.66 in) longer than the car he was driving.

The record for the tightest parallel parking job is one of Guinness' most hotly contested titles and has changed hands five times in the past two years.
