[VIDEO] Subaru BRZ Breaks Guinness World Record for Tightest 360 Spin
The Subaru BRZ just broke the Guinness World Record for the tightest 360˚ spin, dethroning the reigning champion—the Subaru BRZ. Yes, another BRZ had held the record since 2014 at the Autosport International’s Live Action Arena, when the driver was able to spin the car in just 2.5 meters (plus the car’s length).
This time around, stunt driver Alastair Moffat was able to shave off 0.25 meters for a 360˚ spin of just 2.25 meters, officially setting a new record. This isn’t Moffat’s first record, by any means. He also holds the Guinness World Record for tightest parallel park (done in a Fiat 500) and tightest reverse parallel park (done in a Mini Cooper).
“The Subaru BRZ was the perfect car in which to do it; light, highly maneuverable, and easy to control,” said Moffat. “It’s great to have another record to my name.”
There were reportedly no modifications done to the Subaru BRZ used to set the record, though traction control and ABS were turned off. Maybe they used the Pedal Dance?
