If the ability to drift in a small amount of space is high on your new car wish list, take a trip to your local Subaru dealership.

The rear-wheel-drive BRZ broke the Guinness World Record for the ‘Tightest 360° spin’ at this weekend’s Autosport International Show.

Stunt-driver Alastair Moffatt broke his own 2.5-metre Guinness World Record by flicking the BRZ into a 360° spin between two obstacles in Autosport International’s Live Action Arena.

Moffatt has previous experience setting daring Guinness World Records, including ‘Tightest Reverse Parallel Park’ and ‘Tightest Parallel Park’.

To be able to perform the manoeuvre, all the electronic systems such as traction control had to be disabled. Moffatt said: “[We] just ripped a load of fuses out of it and nothing works, apart from the steering wheel and the clutch and brake.”
