Jay-Z & Kanye West's "Otis" Maybach Auctioned For $60,000

The reconstructed Maybach from Jay-Z and Kanye's "Otis" video was auctioned last week.

The torn-apart and rebuilt Maybach from Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Otis" video has found a new home.

Rap-Up.com reports that the car was sold for $60,000, and was sold in less than five minutes. The car was sold as part of the New York Contemporary Art Evening auction.

Though it sold for less than the expected $100,000-$150,000, the Maybach is a work of art rather than a working vehicle. 

Part of the proceeds from the sale benefitted Save the Children to provide food for children in Africa.

In the "Otis" video, Jay-Z and Kanye took apart a 2004 Maybach 57, which has a retail value of $350,000.

    Shows you how stupid niggas in paris are. Why not just donate the 350k from the begginging. Waisted money.

      I doubt they paid anywhere near $350k for this Maybach in the beginning. It was worth $350k when it was brand new eight years ago. I'm not trying to defend them; destroying a Maybach to promote one's own vanity is detestable.

      Yeah? You want to attack somebody for mispelling something when you are defending the validity of these dudes promulgating pointless materialism while supposedly representing the slums and streets of the US?? Do you have ANY fucking idea how big of a double-standard that is?? You would defend them with the argument that they donate more than the average citizen to charities annually, while not pausing to think that in 1 fucking show they make more money than the average american makes in a year!! Get the fuck outta here you brainwashed fuck! Dudes don't help anyone, then they act like they do, then dumbass americans like you believe them. He's not saying they should've donated the Maybach before chopping it up, he's saying they shouldn't have bought the fucking thing in the first place, and donated the entire 350K to charity. You are among the type of people who bear the most blame for our country becoming what it is today, because you simply just don't fucking care. Just wait, we'll see where your heroes leave you when life gets hard. You can continue sucking their dicks until then

      And why not? You might as well go into people collecting rare items as well. BECAUSE they have money or are avid collectors. SMH, you might as well question everybody on the planet about their needs...
