Own a Piece of History by Buying the BMW 750IL Car Tupac Was Shot in
You should really buy the BMW 750IL car Tupac was shot in! What do you think about owning a piece of history? That sounds good to you?
Tupac is a really important guy in the music industry, with some fans believing that he never actually died.
But if you are the other category of fans that believe he actually died, you should submit your information to buy the BMW that Tupac and Suge Knight were shot up in September 1996.
According to a website, this is the exact same BMW 7 Series in which he was shot. To prove that it is the same car, the website says the car has bullet holes in the passenger side since-repaired is on sale now.
“As for how the BMW ended up at an auction house … after the murder, Vegas PD impounded it and the car was auctioned off,” TMZ reports.
“It changed hands several times before finding its most recent owner.”
On the memorabilia website called “Moments in Time” where the car is listed there isn’t much information, but you can email them for further details if you are interested.
From the original report via MTV it is confirmed that the vehicle was a black 1996 BMW 7 series, and the listing photos show it to be a 750IL, the V12 option.
“Tupac and Suge Knight left Knight’s home at around 10:30 PM to go to Club 662. By 11:15 that evening, they were heading east on Flamingo, just coming to this intersection here at Koval. They were driving a black BMW 1996 model. Knight was driving, Tupac was in the passenger’s seat. Along the passenger’s side came a late model white Cadillac. From inside, shots were fired,” according to the MTV reports.
The car was hit 14 times with four of them hitting directly the artist, twice in the chest, once in the arm and once in the thigh.
“Knight was mildly injured by some bullet fragments; but he promptly floored the car, spinning it completely around and took a U-turn so it instantly headed east on Flamingo.”
Despite changing owners several times and being over 20 years, the car has only accumulated 90,000 miles.
According to Kelly Blue Book, an identical BMW with similar mileage sells to a private party for roughly $2,578. Since the one Knight was driving carried arguably one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful MCs, the asking price is $1.5 million.
This BMW joins the Tupac’s own Hummer H1, which was sold by an auction house in May last year for over $300,000.
Since his death in 1996, various personal items related to Tupac including a platinum RIAA plaque for Me Against the World, handwritten letters, and handwritten lyrics have all been put up for auction.
