A Queens member of the Gambino organized crime family has pleaded guilty to setting a businessman’s car on fire after he stopped paying making extortion payments to the mafia.

Peter Tuccio helped torch the businessman’s late-model Mercedes-Benz in 2015, in an effort to extort money from the victim’s pizzeria, according to federal prosecutors.

Tuccio, a Queens resident and an associate member of the notorious mob family, pleaded guilty to extortion in a Brooklyn federal court Wednesday.
