The Guinness world record for the largest parade of Alfa Romeo cars consisted of 312 vehicles and was organized by Allams Alfa Romeo (UK) in Epsom, UK.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the longest balloon chain; it measured 20,024 m (65,695 ft 4.88 in) and was achieved by Future Generali India Life Insurance Co. Ltd. & Future Value Retail Ltd. (Big Bazaar) in association with G2rams India Pvt. Ltd. (all India), in Mumbai, India.
To celebrate the launch of the new Alfa MiTo Quadrifogolio Verde, Alfa Romeo constructed its iconic serpent and cross logo using over 2500 water balloons for a unique social media campaign.
Even if Alfa Romeo didn't say how much time Terry Grant needed in order to burst the water balloons, the professional stunt driver, who already holds 20 world records, managed to leave only four out of 2.738 balloons standing.
The action was captured using the latest pre-production Red Epic slow-mo camera. Damien Dally, Head of Alfa Romeo UK said, "Engaging with our diverse fan base and bringing in a new generation of Alfisti through interactive campaigns like this is a key ingredient to our continued growth. Above all, we've been able to creatively demonstrate the nimbleness and performance ability of the MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde…and, have great fun doing so."
