Parking fail! Jaguar driver repeatedly hits parked car as he tries to fit his £65,000 vehicle into space
- Darren Pittman recorded the clip at Lewisham Hospital on Thursday morning
- New £65,000 blue Jaguar I-Pace captured scraping a Toyota Aygo in next bay
- Video shows eight-month old British motor hitting nearby cars multiple times
- Viewers left baffled at the driver, described as a man in his 40s by eyewitnesses
This is the embarrassing moment a driver is caught on camera repeatedly hitting a car as he tries to park his £65,000 Jaguar.
The parking fail was captured on film by a fellow motorist in the car park of Lewisham Hospital on the morning of Thursday, May 20 at around 10am.
Darren Pittman was looking for a space himself when he noticed the driver failing miserably to park his blue I-Pace electric vehicle.
As the footage begins the Jaguar is inches away from a Toyota Aygo on its left and has its front wheels up the kerb on the gravel area separating rows of parking spaces.
The driver starts reversing backwards and a loud scrape can be heard as it first makes contact with the small Japanese car.
The driver then pushes forward with his wheels slightly to the right, clattering the kerb a second time, before again reversing out and into the Toyota.
In the minute-long video clip, the expensive Jaguar edges forwards and backwards four times, hitting the Toyota with loud noises on every occasion.
Mr Pittman claims the Jaguar had already hit a parked black Ford Focus to its right.

As the clip begins the car is close to a Toyota Aygo reverse parked on the left.
The driver first reverses straight back, but its wheels are already over the line into the Aygo’s space.
Driving forward with the wheel turned slightly to the right, the driver again hits the kerb, however instead of straightening his wheels he turns them further to the right.
With a crashing sound, the eight-month car then shunts into the Toyota.
The clip ends with the Jaguar having failed the manoeuvre four times and slowly getting nearer to Mr Pittman’s car.

Sharing the clip online, Mr Pittman advised: ‘Never drive a car that is too big to park.’
Darren said the driver was a man in his forties who appeared sober and well.
The video has been viewed 220,000 times, attracted 500 comments and been shared over 1,000 times.
One user wrote: ‘Spends £60k on a new Jaguar, yet gets their licence from Kelloggs.’
A third commenter said: ‘They can afford the car, but not driving lessons?’
Another added: ‘Even with gadgets, gizmos, sensors and cameras onboard look at this lemon!’
The extent of the damage to the Jaguar or the other vehicles is not known.
