Tupac’s fully-loaded 1996 Hummer he purchased just three months before he was shot and killed in September of 1996 recently sold at an auction for the sizable price of $337,114, according to Boston-based RR Auction. The vehicle was sold to a die hard Tupac fan from the midwest who wishes to remain anonymous. May be tough to remain anonymous when you have a school bus of babes spilling out the windows of this panty-dropping whip.
A third of a million is a steal when you consider a sappy love letter Tupac wrote to an old lover in high school recently hit the market at a starting price of $35,000. The Hummer only has 10,000 miles on the odometer and is equipped with a 6.5-liter, turbo diesel V-8 engine with automatic transmission.
According to RR Auction, the unique vehicle has off-road lights, a 360-degree spotlight, a grille guard, diamond-plate bumpers, oversized off-road wheels and tires, and an external PA system with three sirens.
The interior is trimmed in burl wood with beige leather upholstery, and is fit with a 12-disc Clarion sound system, Sony GPS and a central tire inflation system.
According to Robert Livingston, executive vice president of RR Auction:
“It’s an incredible piece of hip-hop history that evokes the invincible spirit of one of rap’s true lyrical giants,” said . “We are thrilled at the price achieved and with the continued success of our specialty themed auctions.”
Leaning back and rolling through the city blasting ‘California Love’ in the Hummer Tupac purchased in the height of his swag is a feeling you simply can’t put a price on. A third of a million very well spent.
All this Tupac talk begs the question, what was Diddy’s role in it all?
