Audi A1 fetches R3m at auction

2010-06-28 07:36
A generous donor recently paid a staggering £350 000 (about R3 295 400) for an arty Audi A1 at a charity event.

Sir Elton John hosted around 700 guests at his annual White Tie and Tiara Ball where the car, spin painted by British contemporary artist Damien Hirst, was auctioned to support the singer's Aids foundation.

Hirst’s take on the new Audi model is a vibrant and dramatic colour explosion bound to attract even more attention than usual, as it is “fully driveable and road legal.”

A 1.8-metre diameter canvas spin painting by Hirst was auctioned as part of the same lot.

The eagerly anticipated A1 – sans bold paintwork – arrives in South Africa later this year.
