It looks as if Mini didn't get to hold onto its Guinness World Record for the tightest parallel parking job for all that long. German stunt driver Ronny Wechselberger managed to slide a Volkswagen Up! into a space of just 12 feet and 0.88 inches. Given that the three-door Up! takes up a full 11 feet and 7.37 inches of space itself, the remaining room front and rear was less than the length of a Bic pen. The margin makes the Mini effort seem down right spacious by comparison. Ronny C' Rock, as the stuntman is also known, pulled off the feat at Flugplatz Kindel in Eisenach, Germany.

Earlier this year, Mini held a promotional event in China that saw driver Han Yue leave just 15 centimeters between his Cooper and two others. Before that, the record stood for just one month. You can watch the new record-setting slide in the video below, and be sure to go back and check out Han Yue's efforts here. Now, let's see them pull out of that spot.

          Really.. that's all you have to say. With rising fuel prices and economic uncertainty or maybe you just sharing what the small car drivers will says when gas becomes outrageously expensive ;)

      I guess putting my motorcycle in a space that's about 3 feet wide doesn't count?

      Pretty cool, though it'd be cooler w/o trying to be so pop-tastic. As a response, I would love to see someone do tis with something big- like an F450.

      Gah: your use of metric and inches is terrible. It hurts my head.
