Guinness World Record for Tightest Parallel Parking

Think you can parallel park? Not like this, you can't!

Apparently, the world record for tightest parallel parking is highly competitive. In the past two years, the record has changed hands several times. At first, the title belonged to New Zealand stuntman Peter Bell, which parked his car in a space only 27 cm (10.63 inch) longer than the length of the car.

In August 2011, the record was smashed by German stunt driver Ronny "C-Rock" Wechselberger, who beat Bell's record by one centimeter:

Twenty six centimeter (10.24 inch) turned out to be too long, because Patrick Folco beat it by a full two centimeters. Then, Zhang Hua upped (or is it lowered?) the bar at 24 cm (9.45 inch):

Not to be outdone, Chinese master wheelman Han Yue managed to set a new Guinness World Record by shaving an incredible 7 cm from the record. As it currently stands, the Guinness World Record for Tightest Parallel Parking is an astonishing 15 cm (5.91 inches) longer than the car.
