Watch a Subaru BRZ Perform the World's Tightest 360-Degree Spin
Stunt driver Alastair Moffat has set a new record for the “tightest 360-degree spin” in a car.
Moffat also holds records for the “tightest parallel park” and “tightest reverse parallel park,” set in a Fiat 500 and Mini Cooper respectively. For this record, he used a Subaru BRZ to spin a complete 360-degrees within two lines of parked cars which were positioned to give Moffatt 2.25 meters (7.3 feet) of extra space.
The BRZ used to set the record was totally stock, with the only modifications being the fuses were pulled to disengage traction control and ABS. “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.”
