He’s far from a cheap date.

A prostitute stole a john’s car from the corner of Front and Jay streets on Sept. 19 when the customer wouldn’t cough up enough cash, cops said.

The 54-year-old victim reported that he met a man named Mark while walking to his car in Manhattan, and that he drove to the Dumbo intersection to “hang out” at 12:15 am. The client parked his 2010 Honda Accord and the gigolo performed oral sex on him, then demanded to be paid, according to a police report. The two walked to a nearby cash machine and the escort grabbed the guy’s car keys for collateral, cops said.

The victim handed over $50, but that wasn’t enough to satisfy the sex worker, officers stated.

“If you don’t pay me, I’m taking the car,” the disgruntled date said, per an NYPD account. “I don’t care if you call the police.

Negotiations went nowhere and the prostitute sped off in the man’s ride, the man’s cellphone and portable music player inside, police said.
