BMW Car Tupac Riding Before He Was Shot Put Up For Sale For Nearly $2 Million

The BMW 7 series car which American rapper, Tupac Shakur was riding in before being shot in 1996, has been put up for sale for nearly $2 million. 

The superstar rapper was in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996 with Suge Knight and their entourage, to watch a Mike Tyson fight. However after they were stopped at a red light after the bout, suspects in a white vehicle opened fire. Shakur was hit four times, including one bullet that struck him in his lung. Six days later, it was pronounced dead.

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 at Celebrity Cars Las Vegas showroom and, coincidentally, TMZ reported that it isn’t far from where the 1996 shooting took place.

Back in 2017, this vehicle was up for auction with an asking price of $1.5 million. In early 2020, the asking price went up to $1.7 million. It is unclear if the vehicle has had multiple owners since that time or no buyers.
