BMW In Which Tupac Was Shot On Sale For $1.5 Million (Photos)

An auction has put the BMW 750iL in which Tupac Shakur was killed up for sale for a cool $1.5 million, according to TMZ.

While the car has been restored since Shakur was fatally shot in its passenger seat, there are still some marks which reveal the vehicle's bullet-ridden history.

According to Complex, the final photo taken of Tupac before his 1996 showed him in the passenger seat of the BMW, while Suge Knight was behind the wheel.

The infamous BMW has had several owners since Tupac rode in it in 1996, but has only accumulated a total of about 90,000 miles.

The price of the BMW in which Tupac was killed was dramatically driven up by its morbid history. Kelley Blue Book lists an identical BMW 750iL with similar mileage for just over $2,500.

The BMW went on sale following the May 2016 sale of Tupac's Hummer H1, which the rapper purchased just months before he was killed.

According to Business Insider, Tupac's 1996 Hummer sold for $337,114 in an auction. That selling price was roughly 700 percent higher than the price of an average H1.

"It's an incredible piece of hip-hop history that evokes the invincible spirit of one of rap's true lyrical giants," Robert Livington, executive Vice President of RR Auction, the auction house that sold the Hummer, said in a statement. "We are thrilled at the price achieved and with the continued success of our specialty themed auctions."

The buyer of Tupac's Hummer requested to remain unidentified. RR Auction only revealed that the buyer is from the Midwest.

Tupac's H1, which also changed hands several times before being sold to its latest owner, only shows around 10,000 miles on its odometer.

According to Complex, other Tupac memorabilia sold since his death in 1996 include a platinum record for his album "Me Against The World," handwritten letters and handwritten lyrics.
