Someone Just Bought The Last Car Tupac Purchased Before His Death

How far would you go as a super-fan to honor your favorite celebrity?

While some of us would rather just follow them on Instagram, binge-watch every movie they've ever been in and play every song they've ever made at really high decibels, other super-fans would rather own a piece of their history.

An automobile collector and Tupac fan from the Midwest decided to honor one of his favorite musicians by purchasing the last car Tupac ever bought: a 1996 fully-loaded Hummer H1.

It turns out Tupac actually customized this bad boy himself. Equipped with a 6.5 liter, turbo diesel V8 engine and an automatic transmission, this gently-used blast from the past bears only 10,101 miles on its odometer.

So, how much would a piece of Tupac's history and success cost a deep-pocketed super-fan? Try $337,144!

An anonymous buyer just bought the last car Tupac purchased before his death: a Hummer H1.

As you can see from the burl wood and beige leather upholstery, Tupac rode in style.

The Hummer was fitted with a license plate that reads "YAKNPAK,” honoring Shakur and late rapper Yaki 'Prince' Kadafi.

Also found in the vehicle were two cassette tapes. One was of Tupac's "All Eyez On Me" and the other was Michael Jackson's "Thriller."
