Watch Tightest Parallel Parking World-Record Attempt
Parallel parking can be a challenge. Even if you're driving a small car and have a large space, maneuvering into that space sometimes doesn't go as planned. If you're this guy, parallel parking is no big deal since he just set a new world record for parking in the tightest spot. This record was recently set in China by Han Yue, who was driving a Mini 3-Door Hatchback and squeezed it into an seemingly impossible space. He doesn't do the traditional parallel parking job, which involves backing into the spot and then inching the car forward to get it in there perfectly. Instead, he drifts it into place. Just because why make a world record attempt easy? RELATED: See photos of the 2015 Mini Cooper Hardtop
He set the world record at the China Drift Championship held in Chongqing, China on Nov, 14, so it makes sense that drifting into the spot is how he managed to break the record. It's not the first time he's done this either, having previously set a record in 2012 of fitting into a space only 15 centimeters (less than 6 inches) longer than the car.
That record was handily broken by Britain's Alistair Moffatt who managed to squeeze into a spot only 3.3 inches longer than the car he was driving. Undeterred, Han Yue took back the title this year by fitting into a space with just 3.1 inches to spare.

Watch the parking magic happen. But also wonder how many times he screwed up before getting it right. That's a lot of bumpers to go through.
And where does it end? Will we ever see a one-inch parking job? Probably.
