Bizarre Parking Space Near Harrods Goes On Sale For £85k

Bizarre Parking Space Near Harrods Goes On Sale For £85k

Just in case you needed another reason not to drive in London, this ridiculously priced parking space might do the trick.

Near Harrods, the tiny space looks set to squeeze the wallets of potential buyers, as it's on the market for £85,000.

For context, that's about £84,995 dearer than most local parking spots.

The spot is two meters wide, while the average car is 1.82 meters, meaning that you'll probably need a convertible to get out comfortably.

Still, if you were interested, the spot is listed on Rightmove with the description: "A single allocated parking space within a small garage which is sandwiched between Rutland Gate and Ennismore Mews."

Don't worry, though, because what the space lacks in size, it more than makes up for in 'key features'.

The parking space comes complete with CCTV, fob entry, and a 'water supply' - not sure whether that's for the car or the owner - but this spot has one.

The parking space also has a '960 year lease', so while the upfront cost is astronomical, if you're planning on being immortal, it'll be well worth it.

And it's even near Knightsbridge station if you decide to abandon the car altogether and start taking the tube, like a normal Londoner.

But, if after all that you still fancy putting yourself in a tight spot, you'll probably want to follow this man's lead.

In a viral video, one New Yorker shows how even the tightest of spots are workable.

Practically bumper-to-bumper with other cars, one New York man wasted no time in handling a situation that would scare learner drivers everywhere.

The man starts by putting his full wheel lock on and reversing a little, he then locks the wheel to the opposite side and moves forwards.

As you can imagine, he does this more than a few times, with his noise sensors likely screaming in the background.

But, with a little perseverance, the car is free and people were quick to weigh in on the man's skilful parking.

One person wrote: "It's not that hard once you have to do it ALL the time."

Another said: "Skills. I thought he was just going to ram them."

A third commented: "Only New Yorkers can deal with this type of parking other ppl nah I'm just gonna leave it there til they leave and was raised in Manhattan."
