A devoted Tupac fan is now the new owner of the late rapper’s vintage Hummer H1, after paying a hefty $337,114, reports CNN. Shakur’s old ride was purchased just a mere three months before he was killed 20 years ago. He was tragically shot on September 7, 1996, and died three days later at 25 years-old.
The “Ambitionz Az A Ridah” rapper customized the vehicle with off-road lights, diamond plate bumpers, 360-degree spotlight and a grille guard along with an external PA system coupled with three sirens. Also, it was equipped with an automatic transmission and a 6.5 liter turbo diesel V8 engine.
The inside of the truck is draped in beige leather with trimmings of burl wood. The buyer is a Tupac fan and collector from the Midwest, who wishes to remain anonymous, according to RR Auction. After Tupac’s death, his late mother, Afeni Shakur, has owned the Hummer and several other owners.
“It’s an incredible piece of hip-hop history that evokes the invincible spirit of one of rap’s true lyrical giants,” Executive Vice President of RR Auction, Robert Livingston said. “We are thrilled at the price achieved and with the continued success of our specialty themed auctions.”
