The "Otis" Maybach

The “Otis” Maybach

Remember the Maybach that Jay-Z and Kanye Frankensteined together for the Otis video? The visual of a Sawzall hitting a car most of us will never be able to sit in (let alone buy) is still scarred into our brains. It seemed totally ridiculous at the time, but the video ended with a PSA that the actual luxury Road Warrior whip used for the shoot would be auctioned off for charity. That day is here…almost. On March 8, Phillips de Pury & Company will be auctioning off the “Otis” Maybach as part of a Contemporary Art Evening Sale in New York. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Save the Children. It’s definitely not street legal anymore, but if you can afford the absurdly high price tag this thing will most certainly fetch you can just take it out on your private track.
