Pietersen was caught doing 121km/h in a 100km/h zone on the Geelong Ring Road in a Gallardo LP560-4 yesterday afternoon.

The man-of-the-match from the Adelaide test match was fined $239 by police and lost three demerit points for the offence.

Australian cricket legend and motoring enthusiast Shane Warne – who himself owns a Bugatti Veyron – reportedly organised the joyride for the 30-year-old.

Maybe getting the Poms locked up is the only chance the Aussies have of winning back the Ashes?

Speaking of Veyron’s, US R&B singer Beyonce has just purchased a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for her husband, Jay-Z.

The 29-year-old gifted the 736kW open-top to the rapper for his 41

st

birthday, after waiting a year for it to be delivered.

One of the birthday boy’s ‘people’ said Jay-Z had “one of the most enviable collections of bling motors in the world, but even for him the Bugatti is special”.

Not to be left out, Paris Hilton has splashed out on a new Rolls Royce Ghost.

Retailing for $645,000 in Australia, the 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 Ghost packs 420kW of power and 780Nm of torque – more than enough to leave the paparazzi in her wake.

It slightly less conspicuous than her old ride: a Bentley Continental GT finished inside and out in hot pink.

Another celebrity famous for pink luxury cars is in the headlines too.

A powder blue Mercedes-Benz 600 once owned by the king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley, has sold at an auction in the UK for £80,700 ($129,300). The price was considered a bargain, given that some expected it to sell for more than £200,000 ($320,000).

The 600 was one of only a handful of vehicles registered by Elvis himself. He owned it for two years before giving it to a friend.

And finally, Nick Cave may have some tips for Kevin Pietersen on how to avoid getting snapped by the speed cameras.

The 53-year-old Australian musician crashed his Jaguar into a roadside camera in Sussex, England, yesterday afternoon.

Cave and his twin 10-year-old sons were uninjured in the accident, but the speed camera was reportedly a write-off.
