Guinness World Record Title for Tightest Parallel Parking Returns to China:)

The latest record was achieved by Han Yue from China, who was able to neatly drift a MINI Cooper S into a space of just 15cm (5.91 in) longer than his vehicle during an attempt at the Beijing launch of a new special edition of the British hatchback named "The Chinese Job".

Watch Yue's successful attempt in the video after the jump.

I'd be more impressed if they did it with a Bentley coupe. :p

The level of awesome this type of parking achieves doesn't really rely on a turning radius.
