Mr Swift also broke the record for the “most donuts (spins) around a motorcycle performing a wheelie in one minute… twice!”

At the British Motor Show, a stunt driver recently broke the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the tightest parallel parking in an electric car ever.

GWR reports that stunt driver and precision driving expert Paul Swift was awarded the record after successfully reversing and squeezing his white electric car into a small spot 35cm longer than his white Mini Cooper at an insane speed.

“This record measures the smallest space into which an electric car can be parked in line with other vehicles,” the GWR said in a press release. Mr Swift had only three seconds to park in the space created by two Mini Coopers parked parallel to the curb, according to the report.

However, this was not Mr Swift’s first time breaking this record. Mr Swift set the same record with 13.8 inches to spare on his first attempt, on the first day of the show. On the fourth day of the show, he broke his own record by parking with 11.8 inches to spare.

“I’m shaking like a leaf,” Mr Swift said after bagging the record for a second time. 

But achieving just one record wasn’t enough for the ambitious racer. Mr Swift also broke the record for the “most donuts (spins) around a motorcycle performing a wheelie in one minute… twice!”

According to GWR, Mr Swift was able to spin a yellow Ford Mustang eight times around the moving motorcycle. He then attempted the record again and improved his time with 10 motorcycle spins.
