I don’t post things like this most of the time but killing that car (although not my favorite in any way is a shame…)
Just the Facts:
- Rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West take a blowtorch and saw to a Maybach in their new music video “Otis” — all in the name of helping the 13 million people suffering from a devastating drought in East Africa.
- The Maybach, which now looks more like a luxury dune buggy, will head for auction soon.
- The sale of the car will benefit the East African Drought Disaster relief fund.
Jay Zed and his friend Mae West needed a new motorcar for their latest hiphopora video. So they got a standard Maybach 57, some power tools and a welding torch, and created this. We’re calling it the Jayzach.
It has no roof. It has colossal Brabus-style wheelarches. It hasn’t got doors. Which makes the girls’ laissez-faire approach to seatbelt decorum even more reckless.
The song – titled Otis and an ode to the late, great Otis Redding – doesn’t include any technical specification, but we assume it’s still running the 550bhp V12 (or 630 if it’s the S version) and five-speed auto ‘box.
But before you skitter off to bust a caps-lock up a homeperson, please tell us this – do you think the 125000-mile warranty is still valid?
