BMW that Tupac was assassinated in goes up for sale for £1.4million… and it’s still riddled with bullet holes

THE BMW that rapper Tupac was fatally shot in has hit the market at £1.39million, still riddled with bullet holes.

Except for its blemished complexion, the infamous car is in surprisingly good condition with just over 120,000 miles on the clock.

American musician Tupac Shakur, also known by his stage names 2Pac and Makaveli, is among the world’s best-selling artists and widely considered one of the most influential rappers of all time.

His life came to a tragic end in 1996 when he was shot four times by an unidentified assailant in a drive-by, after a boxing match at the MGM Grand on the Las Vegas strip.

Tupac died six days after the shooting, aged 25.

The black BMW Seven Series Sedan he was in at the time, which is now for sale, has since had the bullet holes splattered across its exterior patched up – but an indentation remain.

A listing for the car reads: “This is the actual car that Tupac Shakur was shot while riding in after a Fight at the MGM in Las Vegas.

“This is the first time this car has ever been up for sale or on display since his death in 1996. It has been completely restored to the condition it was in before his death and has just received a new coat of paint.

“There is a small indentation where we believe one of the bullet holes was but it is hard to tell. Other than that it is fully restored.”

The wheels of the car are the same as the ones it had at the time of the shooting, which took place about 11.15pm on September 7, 1996.

Death Row Records boss Marion “Suge” Knight was driving the car, originally leased by the American record label, at the time.

Tupac and Knight were travelling down Las Vegas Boulevard when the rapper was struck by four rounds fired from a .40-calibre Glock – twice in the chest, once in the arm, and once in the thigh.

Self-confessed gangster Keefe D – real name Duane Davis – later told cops that he and his gang “leaned over, rolled down the window, and popped them”.

He confessed during a police interview in 2008 under what he thought was an immunity deal – but the admission may now be used in court to convict him.

Keefe, 60, has denied to a Las Vegas court judge having any involvement in the murder of the rapper.

The 16-year-old confession, recorded by members of an LAPD Federal task force, was never allowed to be used against the ex Crip in any court case over a legal technicality.

But Keefe now faces the tape being presented as key evidence by the Clark County DA thanks to a legal loophole which states that any person who admits to lying in a “Proffer” – an immunity deal – automatically loses protection.

The gangster’s entire defence, as described by his special defenders, centres on him insisting that he lied about the Tupac murder for “fame and fortune”.

Keefe is expected to be freed from the Clark County Detention Centre in Las Vegas in a matter of days, his lawyer told The Sun.

According to the listing for the BMW, the car Tupac was in when he was shot has had several owners since he died and the most recent put it through a “full restoration”.

The listing stated: “The new owner will be provided with documentation proving ownership and history.

Celebrity Cars has the vehicle on display in our showroom and is available for sale.

“Before any offers are submitted, we require a $20,000 (£16,000) refundable deposit to accompany any offer along with a signed confidentiality agreement.”

Who is Tupac Shakur?

TUPAC Shakur’s death sent shockwaves around the globe in 1996 – but who is he?

The musician is widely considered one of the most influential rappers of all time, having sold more than 75 million records worldwide.

He also experienced many personal and legal troubles.

Toward the end of his career, Tupac was shot five times in the lobby of a New York recording studio and served eight months in prison on sexual abuse charges.

He was released pending an appeal of his conviction in 1995 and later signed to Marion “Suge” Knight’s label Death Row Records.

It was then that he became heavily involved in the growing East Coast-West Coast hip hop rivalry.

On September 7, 1996, Tupac was fatally shot four times by an unidentified assailant in a drive-by in Las Vegas.

He died six days later.
