The infamous chopped up Maybach was sold for $60,000, which is below expectations for a car that originally was worth $300k. The car was sold as a piece of art rather than a working vehicle.
Part of the Maybach sale proceeds will go to Save the Children, the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children in need around the world. The current hunger crisis in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia—the worst in over 60 years—has left 13 million people needing assistance. Some 250,000 people still face starvation in Somalia alone. Save the Children has helped 2.5 million children and families in the Horn of Africa through feeding, water trucking, healthcare and education.
