PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayenne Tows Airbus A380 for Guinness Record

cayenne-a380-tow-0

Porsche is not usually one for such stunts, but when it was proposed to them they should pit a Porsche Cayenne against a 285-tonne Air France Airbus A380, they could not refuse. Turns out they were right to be accept the challenge, as the standard Cayenne towed the giant plane a full 42 meters, securing itself a Guinness World Record.

The title this Porsche Cayenne, which was driven to the airport in France all the way from England and was also driven back after the stunt, has earned is for the ‘Heaviest aircraft pulled by a production car’ which is as impressive a feat as it sounds.

Richard Payne, a technician at Porsche Cars Great Britain who drove the Cayenne, was delighted with the achievement. “We don’t usually go this far to test the limits of our cars but I think today we got pretty close. Our cars can go a bit beyond what our customers might expect – they’re designed to be tough.” As well as setting the new record, the car was driven from London and Richard planned on driving it back again. “Credit should go to the team in Stuttgart who developed the car – they did a thorough job. I’m also very grateful to Air France and its engineers for their generosity in allowing me to tow their beautiful aircraft”.

PostHeaderIcon Subaru BRZ Sets World Record for Tightest 360° Spin

Subaru BRZ Spin

Boasting about how easy your car spins may sound like the wrong way of promoting it, but in the case of the Subaru BRZ that is actually a good thing. The rear-wheel-drive sports car has just set a Guinness World Record for the tightest 360° spin at Autosport International’s Live Action Arena.

This stunt showcased the drivability and the agility, precision, and handling prowess of the sports car – qualities that allowed stunt-driver Alastair Moffatt to spin the car between two obstacles in a 2.25 meters gap, breaking the old record which was set in 2014 at 2.5 meters. This driver also has other records under his belt such as ‘Tightest Reverse Parallel Park’ and ‘Tightest Parallel Park’.

The exclusive features that enabled Subaru BRZ to pull off this seemingly pointless stunt include the car’s low center of gravity, its responsive 2.0 liter 197bhp engine, and above all its unique chassis and suspension setup that allows for the most controllable, most engaging oversteers in this class at least. They had also switched off the traction control and disengaged  the ABS.

Alastair Moffatt commented: “The Subaru BRZ was the perfect car in which to do it; light, highly manoeuvrable and easy to control. It’s great to have another record to my name”.

PostHeaderIcon Honda Civic Tourer Sets New Guinness Record for Fuel Efficiency

Honda

A production Honda Civic Tourer managed to set a new Guinness World Record for lowest fuel consumption crossing all 24 contiguous EU countries. The car covered a distance of 8,387 miles in 25 days, averaging 100.31 miles per gallon, corresponding to 932 miles per tank.

That means the fuel bill for the entire journey was just £459. Driven by two members of Honda’s European Research & Development (R&D) team, the record-breaking Honda Civic Tourer was powered by a 1.6 i-DTEC engine which has quoted efficiency of 74.3 mpg. Of course those guys were professional hypermilers who could better that figure by 25 percent. But even if you get something like 70 percent of the quoted figure, that is still pretty good for a spacious and practical estate car.



Leon Brannan, Head of Cars for Honda (UK) comments: “This is an incredible achievement and the team should all be very proud of the efforts that they have put in to set this new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD. Driving the equivalent distance from their home in the UK to Australia in just 25 days is a huge challenge very few would take on. The fuel economy figures are remarkable – particularly when you consider that this is not a small car, but an estate with class-leading load space and vast practicality.”
