You can own the 1996 BMW 2 Pac Shakur Was Shot In for $1.5 Million
The 1996 BMW 750 iL that the legendary rapper was riding in when he was fatally shot in Las Vegas 21 years ago is up for grabs. And just like any used Beemer, it's for sale on Cars.com with an eyebrow-raising price of $1.5 million.Even though the car was basically brand new when the shooting occurred, it was auctioned off after being released from the Las Vegas Police impound lot and served as a daily driver for several different (and apparently unsuspecting) owners along the way. Fresh off a recent restoration, it looks extremely clean and rides on rims that are identical to the ones equipped at the time of the shooting.
Tupac Shakur was riding in the BMW's passenger seat on the night of September 7, 1996 when an unknown number of assailants rolled up alongside the car in a white Cadillac and opened fire. Of the 14 shots, four of them struck Tupac; Knight instantly whipped the 750 iL around and floored it away from the scene, making it about a mile despite two flat tires and being struck by bullet fragments himself. Police and paramedics responded and rushed the 25-year-old rapper to the hospital, where he died of his injuries six days later.
