So, how did you celebrate Chinese New Year last week? Opened up a box of tikoy, or perhaps lit up a few firecrackers? That’s nice. If, however, you’re one of the world’s largest Chinese carmakers, chances are a snack and some bright lights in the sky aren’t going to cut it.

All-in-all, 1,339 Geely units were used to set the record over a 30-hour period. The manufacturer even invited 100 Geely owners to take part in the celebration. This is quite a feat, but we have to say we do not envy the drivers responsible for putting this thing together. Hopefully, Geely had more than a handful of them around to position these units.

So, what do you make of this Guinness World Record? Was it worth the effort? Let us know in the comments.
