The BMW car that Tupac Shakur drove in before he was shot dead in 1996 went on sale for nearly $ 2 million.
The superstar rapper was in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996 with Suge Knight and her entourage to see a Mike Tyson fight. However, after being stopped at a red light after the fight, suspects opened fire in a white vehicle. Shakur was hit four times, including one bullet that hit him in the lungs. Six days later it was announced that Tupac had died.
The car, which has been restored to its original condition, now has an asking price of $ 1.7 million. Potential buyers can view the car for themselves and randomly in the Celebrity Cars Las Vegas showroom TMZ reported that it is not far from the location where the shooting was carried out in 1996.
In 2017, this vehicle was auctioned for an offer price of $ 1.5 million. In early 2020, the asking price rose to $ 1.7 million. It is unclear whether the vehicle has had multiple owners or no buyers since then.
Every year there seems to be a new Tupac-centric item going up for auction. Poems, prison letters, and unseen photos of the rapper have been bought for tens of thousands of dollars in the past.
