The BMW 750iL that Tupac Shakur was fatally shot in is now up for sale, but the asking price just may surprise you. A U.S. website is selling the BMW the iconic rapper was gunned down in for a whopping $1.5 million. The price is pretty shocking considering a new BMW 7-series sedan costs roughly $81,500.
Shakur, also known as 2Pac, was fatally shot in the black BMW while leaving a boxing match in Las Vegas in 1996. He was 25 years old.
Memorabilia site Moments in Time is listing the BMW as “Tupac’s Car – An Extraordinary Relic.” Several photographs of the refurbished car are displayed, with a document claiming it was registered to Shakur’s label Death Row Records in 1996. It lists the original dealer as “Nick Alexander Impor.”
Death Row President Suge Knight was driving the car on the night of Pac’s death and sustained minor injuries following the shooting. The murder is still unsolved.
Shakur will be posthumously inducted to the 2017 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on April 7. Artists are eligible for inclusion 25 years from the release of their first recording.
