The 'Tupac Shakur Sedan', as it's being referred to, went down in history after the famous rapper was shot dead in it on September 7, 1996. Tupac was only 25 the night that he died and the details surrounding his death have been shrouded in mystery ever since. He was shot following an argument with a member of the Crips gang earlier that evening.
Chris Carroll was the cop at the scene of the murder, and the last person to speak to Tupac alive. The rapper famously said "f*** you" to the cop before slipping out of consciousness, according to a CNN article published in 2014.
The same bullets that claimed Tupac's life also caused damage to the 90s beemer. The bullet holes from the Glock pistol that fired at the vehicle have now been covered up and the car has been fully restored.
Who will be the next owner?
Over the past 20 years, the car has seen a variety of owners. Ryan Hamilton, co-owner of Celebrity Car, told local television station KTNV that he didn't think a serious car collector would be interested in the vehicle. Instead, he expects a well-off Tupac fan to snatch up the car. "The type of guy who bought the Wu-Tang Clan album for $2.5 million," he said.
There is no doubt that Tupac has become one of the most widely respected rappers in history and his name lives on through the legacy he left through his music. The details surrounding his death have and continue to intrigue the general public and while it remains to be seen who will become the next owner of the ominous car, that person will carry on with them an important part of music history.
