Police clocked Joseph Carbone driving 113 miles an hour on the LIE early Wednesday morning, but the Long Island resident insists they're wrong: he was going faster.

Cops allege that when they pulled Carbone's $80,000 Maserati over at around 3 am, the driver told them to check their radar equipment because he was really going 135 miles an hour.

And as if that wasn't bad enough, Carbone proceeded to tell the officer that that he had been drinking.

Police arrested him for the fourth time in six years and confiscated the shiny sports car.
