The year was 1996. Tupac Shakur was riding in the back of a black BMW 7-series driven by Suge Knight after leaving the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson boxing match at Las Vegas’ MGM.
While stopped at a red light at East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane, a white Cadillac approached the BMW on the right side, opening fire on Shakur. After being hit four times, Tupac died of his wounds six days later.
Originally leased by Death Row Records, the BMW 750Li of the same manufacturing year Tupac was riding in on that fateful night has now been fully restored and listed for auction. Despite having 121,043 miles on the clock, the whip looks good as new.
Celebrity Cars Las Vegas are expecting to fetch up to US$1.75 million for the hallowed vehicle, and have specified that there is a small indentation on one of the doors where there was believed to be a bullet hole.
