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.
