Kanye West and Jay-Z’s ‘Otis’ Maybach Sells For $60,000 [Photos]

Rucuss staffMarch 12, 2012

It took less than five minutes to sell the now famous Maybach featured in Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Otis” video.

The customized Maybach 57 sold for $60,000 during the New York Contemporary Art Evening auction. The Maybach was being “sold as a work of art, not a working vehicle.” West and Jay dismantled the car during the video. The glass roof  was tossed to the side, the doors ripped off and welded to the back, the front grill removed and stuck on the tail end and the fender walls was made out of sheet metal.

The car, which was expected to go for $100,000, has an original purchase price of $350,000. A portion of the sale will benefit Save the Children, which helps children and their families around the world.
