Star English batsman Kevin Pietersen continues to rack up centuries.

Only days after scoring 227 against the Aussies in Adelaide, Pietersen has made one off drive he probably wishes he had not.

The 30-year-old has been clocked driving at 121 kilometres per hour while going for a spin in a Lamborghini organised for him by Shane Warne.

He was pulled over by Victorian police yesterday afternoon while driving the $475,000 car on the Geelong ringroad, which is a 100kph zone.

One of cricket’s excitement machines, Pietersen was fined $239 and lost three demerit points.

While his team-mates were training at the MCG in preparation for a three-day game against Victoria starting tomorrow, the South Africa-born Pietersen opted to indulge his passion for fast cars.

He decided to go for a drive along the Great Ocean Road in the car arranged for him by his buddy Warne, an ambassador for the sports car manufacturer.
