Damian Hirst Painted Audi Fetches $525k for Charity

Pop artist Damian Hirst's paint job on an Audi A1 helped the car sell for over $525,000 at a recent charity auction for Elton John's AIDS Foundation.  The A1, Audi's answer to the Mini Cooper, was spin painted by Hirst in shades of pink, green, red and white. There's no word on the identity of the buyer, but it's likely that the car was purchased for it's artistic value and not for it's functionality as an automobile.
