I watched this and almost immediately concluded that it had to be a setup, done by a professional driver.  It’s pretty entertaining though.

What do you think?

Does seem pretty well a setup.  It just doesn’t seem feasible that the driver saw that car park space soon enough to have been able to do that manouver.  Reminds me of the stunts they did on the (original) Italian Job in the minis.

Yeah, also your average driver doesn’t have NEAR the skill to be able to pull that kind of maneuver at all, much less in such close quarters without smashing into any neighbours.

I’m beginning to spell like a Brit.

The other thing I just realised is that the filming of the event was pretty good - it’s not obviously taken from security cameras - the quality seems too good for that, and it wasn’t done by some random witness with a hand-held camera.
