Stick key / screwdriver into driver door lock and turn counter clockwise. If not works, turn lock to right (arm alarm) and then left, to disarm. If no work or is not possible, replace ignition cylinder in your new car so that you have key. Replace door handles so that you can lock it up and get the alarm to arm and disarm.
