At 11:15 PM on September 7th, 1996, after leaving the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson fight at the MGM in Las Vegas, American rapper Tupac Shakur was riding in a BMW 7 Series that was shot 13 times — with one of the .40 caliber rounds piercing Shakur’s lung and ultimately claiming his life six days later. A quarter-century after that fateful night, and the 1996 BMW 750iL — which was leased to Death Row Records and was being driven by Suge Knight on the night Makaveli was shot — is now for sale.
Since the incident in 1996 that occurred at the corner of East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane, the 1996 750iL has been thoroughly restored, having its windshield — which was struck by a round — and bullet hole-ridden body panels on the right side of the vehicle replaced with new items. The 750iL also now rides on a different set of aftermarket wheels than it did under the record label’s ownership in ’96, however, its current rims — a polished set of 17″ aluminum Billet Specialties GS47 items — were selected as they boast a remarkably similar appearance. Reportedly the first time this car has been for sale since 2Pac’s death, this 1996 BMW 750iL is currently on offer through Celebrity Cars in Las Vegas with an asking price of $1,750,000.
