Jay-Z/Kanye Wrecked 'Otis' Maybach Brings Just $60,000 At Auction

Follow Nelson

It seems even those with a taste for contemporary art couldn't open their wallets very far--even in the name of the Save the Children charity--for the monstrosity that is the Jay-Z/Kanye West 'Otis' Maybach. It sold for just $60,000 at the New York Contemporary Art Evening auction held by Phillips de Pury & Co.

The butchered and mangled Maybach 57 had been estimated to sell between $100,000 and $150,000 despite its...artistic...redesign for the music video to the duo's Grammy-winning Otis. Perhaps it wasn't so much the radical liberation of the car's interior as it was the fact that such a stylish crowd would rather be shot than caught cruising in a Maybach from 2004.

Despite the low sale price, we're sure the $60,000 will help the Save the Children foundation--though only part of the money will be going to the charity, according to the auction description.
