There are some amazing things you can do with cars and we have seen plenty of world records broken with people showing off those very things. Now, it’s time for another one that’s a it more unusual; the largest loop de loop in a car.

This record was broken while driving a Youngman Lotus L5 Sportback - a car developed by Youngman - a local Chinese maker that builds cars under Proton’s license. The car is powered by a 1.6-liter four that produces just 130 HP - not powerful, but enough for what this guy needed.

The largest loop de loop in a car measured 12.87 m (42 ft 2.69 in) in diameter and was achieved by Li Yatao (China) from the Car Team of Zhejiang Youngman Lotus Automobile Co., Ltd. in Shanghai, China, on September 23, 2011. The loop was made from steel and was 3.68 m (12 ft 0.88 in) wide and weighed 33,000 kg (72,752 lb).

It only needs Guinness to make it official; it’s already proven itself with us!

Even if it’s not to be recognized by Guinness, most people have already been amazed by what it has done anyway so it’s still renowned.

Guinness must see this one! Their main aim is for it to be viewed, and amaze plenty of people (including Guinness).

I think it’s not really easy to do that. Imagine, it’s for Guinness World Records! The car they used is surely designed just for this purpose.
