This things longer than most modern cars. In fact it's actually longer than a lot of normal size vans! My mk2 Transit is a LWB model and it's shorter than the Mercury.
Width wise I'd say it's got most cars beat too. It's almost exactly the same width as my 60 plate Mercedes Sprinter van, I think it's only the vans door mirrors that give it the edge, so I'd guess very few cars will be as wide or wider.
I'll try to get some pics next time it's out though but as a rough guide it won't fit in one car park parking bay, you need two to get the length in. It just about goes in width wise but you'd struggle to open the doors if someone was parked next to it.
You have to drive it like you'd drive a big van too, leave plenty of room on corners at junctions or you'll cut the back wheels over the pavement. Same on country lanes, keep well over or it blocks the road!
Edit, length is 222.5''
Width is 79.6''
