The BMW Tupac Was Murdered In Is On Sale For $1.5 Million

The BMW that Tupac Shakur was murdered in is now on sale for $1.5 million.

The 1996 BMW, which is being auctioned off by Moments In Time, has now been restored but still features visible bullet holes and indentations.

The West Coast rapper was fatally shot in the car back in 1996, while sitting in the passenger seat alongside Suge Knight in Las Vegas.

A number of different memorabilia items related to Tupac were auctioned off last year, including an unpublished letter the rapper wrote while in prison.

The letter was written by Tupac to Nina Bradreshwar (the publicist for Deathrow Records and a trusted friend) while he was incarcerated at New York’s Clinton Correctional Facility.

Titled “Is Thug Life Dead?” the four page letter finds Tupac addressing rumors around his incarceration in 1995.

“I am sure by this time people are confused. There is no doubt the rumor mill is buzzing,” the rapper begins. He then details his journey into what he calls the second stage of his life — “Thug Life.”

He concludes his letter by saying “Beware of Playa Haters and evil envious ‘homiez.’ They will bring u harm. It ain’t all good my people be aware! Hopefully this will do some of u some good. If it does then I don’t sit in jail in vain.” He then promises to drop another album, “not 4 me but 4 the homeiz,” adding “It will shake the world!”

The letter ultimately sold for $172,725.

Fans of the rapper are also likely looking forward to the release of the Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me, which drops on June 16, 2017. The date marks Tupac’s birthday, who would be turning 46 in 2017.

The last trailer for All Eyez On Me was released nearly four months ago, on the 20th anniversary of the rapper’s death. The two minute clip goes through multiple parts of Tupac’s career: from his incarceration and getting singled out by at the time Vice President Dan Quayle, to becoming a rap superstar and ultimately becoming the face of West Coast rap during the West and East Coast rap rivalry of the ’90s.
