BMW carrying Tupac when he was shot dead in 1996 is put up for auctioned
The car Tupac Shakur was in when he was shot dead is being sold for $1.75 million.
The legendary musician was a passenger in a BMW 750Li when he was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996.
It is now being auctioned off by a dealer in the same city having been painstakingly restored – with its original leaser in prison.
A small indentation where a bullet may have hit remains visible on one of the doors – serving as a reminder of the car’s grisly history.
The shooting took place while Shakur was being driven by notorious record producer Suge Knight after watching a boxing match at a casino.
Witnesses described seeing a white Cadillac pull up alongside the pair’s black BMW – from which the assailant then carried out the shooting in a matter of seconds.
Shakur, 25, was struck in the chest, arm and thigh by four .40 caliber rounds rounds fired from a pistol.
