Hummer H1, which rapper Tupac Shakur ordered a month before his death, is again looking for a new owner. The tuned SUV was already put up for sale in 2017, and then the owner was found only on the second attempt. Five years later, the car will be put under the hammer again at the Goldin auction: the current bid is 100 thousand dollars, while last time it was possible to get twice as much for the car.
Hummer H1 was assembled by order of Tupac in 1996. American Motors was responsible for tuning the SUV: it has custom bumpers with built-in winches, an additional lighting unit, 38-inch wheels, and genuine leather and wood used in the interior decoration. In addition to all of the above, a Clarion speaker system was installed in the rapper H1, and the inscription “Eliminator” was applied in white on the rear wings. The car is powered by a 6.5-liter turbo diesel V8 with a capacity of about 200 horsepower.
The auction will last another 11 days, so the price may rise.
Tupac didn’t own the car for long — a month after the order, the rapper died in a shootout, but then he was driving a BMW 750i. By the way, the sedan was also put up for auction: a restored car, with bullet holes on the body, was put under the hammer in 2020 for $1.7 million.
There have been other cars in Tupac’s garage over the years. For example, Jaguar XJS, a yellow Chevrolet Impala convertible of the 60s, a 1995 Rolls-Royce Corniche IV, a Mercedes-Benz 500SL roadster, to which a line in the track All Eyez On Me is dedicated, as well as a snow-white Range Rover Classic.
