Some very wealthy 2pac superfan may soon be the new owner of the car the rapper was sitting in when he was shot to death in 1996.
A company called Celebrity Cars Las Vegas is currently selling the BMW 7-series occupied by the late rapper at the time of his murder. The asking price for the vehicle, up for sale on eBay, is a whopping $1,500,000.
"This is the actual car that Tupac Shakur was shot while riding in after a Fight at the MGM in Las Vegas. It was driven by Suge Knight and originally leased by Death Row Records," begins the seller's description of the black luxury sedan.
This is the first time this car has ever been up for sale or on display since his death in 1996. It has been completely restored to the condition it was in before his death and has just received a new coat of paint. There is a small indentation where we believe one of the bullet holes was but it is hard to tell. Other than that it is fully restored. The photo of the bullet holes is just for reference. The wheels have been replaced with the same wheels that it had at the time of the shooting. It runs great and is in excellent condition.
The shooting occurred September, 7th 1996 at 11:15 p.m. pacific time when the car with Shakur and Knight stopped at a red light at East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane. Shakur was struck by four .40 caliber rounds fired from a Glock two in the chest, one in the arm, and one in the thigh.
The new owner will be provided with documentation proving ownership and history. The car has had several owners since the shooting but the most recent put it through a full restoration. The car was put up for sale recently by an unauthorized company that did not have the rights to it or possession of the vehicle.(see cease and desist letter) Celebrity Cars has the vehicle on display in our showroom and is available for sale.
