MANHATTAN — He may drive fast, but he couldn't outrun the law.

A 30-year-old man who posted a video to YouTube of himself lapping Manhattan with his BMW in record time has been arrested, cops said.

Police had been hunting Christopher Adam Tang, who used the moniker "Afroduck," ever since he drove his 2006 BMW Z4 around the 26.5-mile ring of the borough in slightly more than 24 minutes.

Tang started at East 116th Street and drove south on FDR Drive until he hit Battery Park, where he then looped up West Street back to his starting point, cops said.

"You frankly can't identify who I am by just looking at the video and records were meant to be broken," Tang told Jalopnik days after the stunt.

"This wasn't the first time I broke the record. I can do it consistently under 24 minutes and most likely beat my own record again." Tang boasted.

But cops were determined.

"We now have license-plate readers that will assist in this type of investigation," NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly told the New York Post.

Tang was awaiting a slew of traffic charges including reckless endangerment, reckless driving, and speeding.
