The Hummer H1 Eliminator is a truly one of a kind vehicle that will always stand out. Just months before his death, Tupac’s car collection added an SUV so aggressive it personified the rapper’s often frenzied demeanor. The customized 1996 Hummer H1 has a 6.5 litre turbodiesel V8 backed by an automatic transmission. With an aggressive exterior guard, tonnes of off-road lights, a 360-degree spotlight, and an external PA system with three sirens, you couldn’t miss the ‘Outlawz’ coming! The mammoth military-mimicking motor (try saying that quickly three times!) sold at auction in 2016 for $337,114.
61 Chevrolet Impala
In his classic ‘To Live & Die In L.A’ 1996 music video, Tupac cruised through the City of Angels in a lemon-yellow 1961 Chevy Impala. The product placement further enhanced the Chevrolet brand following NWA’s famous “cruisin’ down the street in my ’64” lyric. It’s safe to say Tupac had an influence on Chevrolet snatching a 16.80 per cent peak US market share in that year. Tupac had a real bond that he formed with the West Coast rap scene, and there is probably not a car that is more synonymous with the West Coast than the 1961 Chevrolet Impala.
On September 7, 1996 Tupac rode in Knight's black BMW 750iL sedan after a confrontation with Orlando Anderson at the MGM Lobby. The 1996 BMW 750iL was a fine piece of automotive engineering, and there was also an even larger model which came with the notorious V12 engine, and this is one of the highly sought after used models.
Tupac drove a 1995 Rolls-Royce Corniche IV that was actually owned by Death Row Records label chief, the infamous Suge Knight. Tupac was quite proud of the Rolls-Royce Corniche, often seen driving it around and featuring the vehicle in a few of his music videos. This was a big and luxurious car that could still pack a decent performance punch when it needed to.
CARS AND SUVs
The emerald Jag was the gem in Tupac’s fleet, as it was one of the few he owned outright in his own name. The convertible was barely driven following his death and was auctioned on eBay in 2008 with the original paperwork and Tupac’s signature – all for a $40,000 opening bid!
Tupac Shakur had a Range Rover in 1994 that eventually ended up getting crashed and totaled by Fatal after he borrowed it without Tupac permission in 1996. The Range Rover was a modern V8 powered SUV that offered luxury and a lightweight design that made the vehicle much more pleasurable to drive.
The Mercedes 500SL is a car that Tupac drove, and was actually featured in many of his most famous songs. “Picture me rollin‘ in my 500 Benz" Tupac could also be seen driving it in the California Love Remix music video.
Atron Gregory bought Tupac Shakur a black Jeep Cherokee with automatic transmission and a tow package in June of 1992, with a down payment of $10,000 against a purchase price of $29,298.99.
