Tupac Shakur’s Hummer has been sold for little over $206,000 dollars on the second auction.
Last year, Shakur’s old Hummer crossed the auction block selling for $337,144, but the winning bidder defaulted on payment. Since RR Auction was unable to collect on the vehicle, it crossed the auction block again and this time, it sold for $206,531. That’s quite a bit more than the estimate of around $100,000 that the auction house expected.
The Hummer H1 was the last vehicle Shakur would purchase in his lifetime on August 16, 1996, a little less than a month before his death. The fully loaded model was customized by the late rapper with modifications like off-road lights, a 360-degree spotlight, grille guard, diamond-plate bumpers, off-road wheels and tires, and more.
According to RR Auction, the winning bid came from a businessman in Baltimore who wishes to remain anonymous.
Speaking about the auction, Bobby Livingston, the executive vice president at RR Auction said: “It’s an incredible piece of hip-hop history, and we are thrilled to have played a role in helping to find its new home.”
