The Otis Maybach, the Maybach Jay-Z and Kanye were driving in their “Otis” video was sold in less than five minutes at auction.
The customized 2004 Maybach 57 was sold for $60,000 which seems a bit low, seeing the original price of the car ($300,000) and that thing was driven by Jay-Z and Kanye in one of the biggest videos of last year. Buyers were warned that the car will be sold as a work of art instead of a working vehicle.
Part of the Maybach sale proceeds will go to Save the Children, the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children in need around the world. The current hunger crisis in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia—the worst in over 60 years—has left 13 million people needing assistance. Some 250,000 people still face starvation in Somalia alone. Save the Children has helped 2.5 million children and families in the Horn of Africa through feeding, water trucking, healthcare and education.
