BMW car Tupac was killed in auctions for $1.7m

The 1996 BMW 750IL car that American Rapper, Tupac Amaru Shakur, was killed 25 years ago has been put for auction at $1.7 million, TMZ reports.

The legendary musician was sitting in the passenger seat when he fell victim to a drive-by shooting.

He was in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, with label boss, Surge Knight to watch a Mike Tyson fight.

The sleek black ride was leased by Death Row Records when Shakur was gunned down.

Reports chronicling details about his death suggested they were stopped at a red light after the bout when suspects in a white Cadillac opened fire on them.

Shakur was hit multiple times, including one bullet that struck him in his lung.

Six days later, news filtered in that the rap legend had passed away

The car which has been refurbished to its original condition has an asking price of $1.7m.

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 mil.

It is unclear if the vehicle has had multiple owners since that time or no buyers.
