The Throne’s ‘Otis’ Maybach Sells for $60K, Proceeds Donated to Save the Children

Vibe / March 12, 2012

Remember that 2004 Maybach 57 Kanye West and Jay-Z tore apart in the “Otis” video? It sold for $60,000.

The car (which retails for close to $350,000) went up for sale at the New York Contemporary Art Evening auction last week and sold in under five minutes, according to Rap-Up.

And, although it went for less than expected (the vehicle was estimated to go for $100,000-$150,000), there’s still reason to celebrate as part of the proceeds were donated to Save the Children to benefit hungry children in Africa. We’re down with the cause. – Stephanie Long
