Musician and producer Marion Hugh “Suge” Knight Jr. was driving the car on Sept. 7, 1996, when, at the intersection of East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane when a gunman fired four .40-caliber rounds into the passenger side of the vehicle.

Shakur was hit in the arm, thigh and twice in the chest. He died four days later.

When Skakur was shot in the vehicle, it was on lease to Death Row Records.

Las Vegas police impounded the car shortly after the shooting and later auctioned off. It’s had a few owners before it was fully restored. It’s the the first time the public has seen the car in years.

The car’s location was unknown for several years, according to Ryan Hamilton, general manager of Celebrity Cars.

According to the car’s pedigree, its most recent owner discovered the vehicle’s history and had it verified and inspected by BMW of Las Vegas in 2016.

The vehicle identification number on the windshield matches the number of the vehicle leased by Death Row Records, according to a letter from the dealership. The odometer reads 121,045, more than 100,000 miles greater than from when Shakur was shot.

“We’ve had people fly in from across the county to see it,” Hamilton said. “We’ve had people making offers on it from across the world like Europe and Dubai.”

No one has bid on the vehicle at its current asking price.

“I don’t feel like its going to go to a serious collector,” said Hamilton. “I think it’s going to go to the type of guy who bought the Wu-Tang album for $2.5 million.”
