A Maserati owner who just moved to New York City got an unwelcome greeting to the Big Apple.

Chadwick Lange, 43, who moved to the city from Florida, left his Maserati idling in Times Square around 5 a.m. Sunday while he exited his car to talk with a friend, police said.

As Lange was chatting, two men approached him and asked if they could take pictures of the 2008 Gran Turismo.

Lange agreed. After snapping a few photos, one of the men hopped into the driver's seat and sped away, stopping a block away to pick up his partner in crime, according to police.

The $150k car has not been recovered.
