Tupac’s 1996 Hummer H1 Sells at Auction for $337,144

The last vehicle purchased by rapper Tupac Shakur, aka 2Pac, before his 1996 death commanded a healthy sum at auction earlier this month. The rapper’s customized 1996 AM General Hummer H1 Hardtop sold for $337,144 during the RR Auction. The lot was estimated at $100,000.

“It’s an incredible piece of hip-hop history that evokes the invincible spirit of one of rap’s true lyrical giants,” said Robert Livingston, Executive VP at RR Auction, in a release. “We are thrilled at the price achieved and with the continued success of our specialty themed auctions.”

2Pac purchased the Hummer H1 about a month before his death. Power comes from a 6.5-liter turbodiesel V-8 backed by an automatic transmission. The vehicle has traveled just 10,101 miles, according to the odometer. The exterior of the H1 features a grille guard with off-road lights and roof-mounted off-road lights, a 360-degree spotlight, and an external PA system with three sirens.

Cosmetic upgrades include diamond-plate bumpers and a lift-kit to fit a 38-inch Dick Cepek wheel and tire combo. There is also white lettering over the rear fenders that reads “ELIMINATOR.” The H1 also features a central tire inflation system and a 12,000-pound winch.

Inside, the custom Hummer H1 features beige leather upholstery and burl wood trim. The audio system features a Clarion head unit and 12-disc changer, as well as a Sony GPS system. Other features include tinted windows, sliding rear glass, air conditioning, and full power accessories. Not many amenities when compared to other high-dollar cars of the day, but the civilian version of the H1 was derived from a bare-bones military vehicle after all.

Additional items included with 2Pac’s Hummer include a vanity license plate reading “YAKNPAK,” and promotional cassettes for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and 2Pac’s “All Eyez on Me.” The vanity plate honors the late rapper as well as fellow Outlawz rapper Yaki “Prince” Kadafi who died two months after 2Pac. The two rappers were said to drive around in the custom Hummer H1 together often.

There are also two vehicle registration forms including one showing the rapper as the original owner. There is also a copy of the affidavit for transfer to his late mother Afeni Shakur (who passed away earlier this month) as the property successor. The affidavit also lists that “Tupac A. Shakur, the owner of the above described vehicle or vessel died on September 13, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada.”

In addition to 2Pac’s Hummer, RR Auction also sold letters signed by the late rapper referencing the East Coast-West Coast rivalry. The signed letters sold for $11,840.
