NEW YORK, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- New York police have pledged to hunt down the anonymous driver who recorded himself making a 26.5-mile lap around Manhattan in 24 minutes.

The driver, identified only as YouTube user AfroDuckProduction, posted a dashboard camera video of his late-night Aug. 26 drive, which averaged about 66 mph, and said he defeated a 26-minute record for the same run in 2010, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

"You frankly can't identify who I am by just looking at the video," AfroDuck told automotive Web site Jalopnik, "and records were meant to be broken."

The driver said he used a 2006 BMW Z4 for his run.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said officers will hunt down and prosecute the driver.

"We now have license-plate readers in the city that will assist in this type of investigation," Kelly said.
