Tupac's Hummer H1 Has A New Owner Who Just Paid How Much?


People will buy anything.

Earlier this month we told you about the upcoming auction for the last vehicle slain rapper Tupac Shakur ever bought: a 1996 Hummer H1 hardtop. With only 10,101 miles on the odometer, Tupac’s H1 is powered by a turbocharged 6.5-liter diesel V8 with 195 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. The interior is nothing to write home about, although it was upgraded with leather seats and burl wood trim. There’s also a 12-disc CD player (hey, it was the 90s). Originally, RR Auctions estimated the H1 will bring in over $100,000.

They were right, but it went for quite a bit more than that in the end. The winning bid was $337,144 – more than three times what was estimated. "It’s an incredible piece of hip-hop history that evokes the invincible spirit of one of the rap’s true lyrical giants," stated the Executive VP of RR Auction, Robert Livingston. Tupac himself bought the H1 only about a month before he was gunned down in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 13th, 1996. Other upgraded features on this H1 include a grille with off-road lights and even roof-mounted off-road lights. There’s also a 360-degree spotlight and an external PA system with three sirens. Along with upgraded wheels and tires, there are diamond-plate bumpers and a 12,000 pound winch.
