The video, filmed by NBC producer Keith Feldman, shows a group of men in masks hopping out of two cars and charging through a smashed door in Soho before running back outside carrying boxes of goods on Monday night.
“Looters are literally pulling up in nice cars and cleaning out stores in #Soho. What #Curfew?” Feldman wrote on Twitter.
One of the men can be heard shouting, “Come on, come on!” before the apparent thieves jump back in their luxury rides and drive away.
“That’s a $500,000 Rolls Royce on the right, incredible,” one observer wrote on Twitter.
Another identified the car as a Rolls-Royce Cullinan, which they claim “starts north of $300k.”
The retail raid came amid an 11 p.m. citywide curfew enacted Monday night, implemented after protesters furious over the death of George Floyd turned violent in Manhattan. The curfew start time was then moved to 8 p.m. by Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday and extended through Sunday night.
The name and location of the shop in the footage were not immediately clear — nor was it clear if police were called.
Floyd, who was black, died after white Police Officer Derek Chauvin pinned him to the ground by his neck for nearly nine minutes on May 25.
