We all know that the current Subaru BRZ, the brother of Toyota GT86 is a small coupe with great abillities when it comes to driving fast around corners. Even so, we wouldn`t have thought that this could bring BRZ a world record. The rear-wheel drive BRZ managed to secure a Guinness World Record for the ‘Tightest 360° spin’. 

The record was secured at the Autosport International Show over the weekend, with the BRZ in the hands of former world record holder Alastair Moffat.

Stunt-driver Alastair Moffatt broke the previous  2.5-metre Guinness World Record, which was achieved in 2014, by flicking the BRZ into a 360° spin between two obstacles.

Moffatt has previous experience setting daring Guinness World Records, including ‘Tightest Reverse Parallel Park’ and ‘Tightest Parallel Park’, the latter established at the 2015 Autosport show.

In order for Alastair to have maximise control over the car throughout the manoeuvre, the traction control was switched off and ABS disengaged.


With rear-wheel drive and a Torsen limited slip differential fitted as standard, the BRZ is available from £22,495.
