Tupac Shakur’s 1996 Hummer H1 is soon back up for auction after the last buyer failed to make the payment.
RR Auction will begin officially accepting bids on the late rapper’s old SUV August 10 and conclude the bidding August 17. The Hummer H1 has a relisted estimate of $100,000. The vehicle had previously sold in May for $337,000. However, the bidder from Ohio defaulted on the payments.
Tupac originally bought the Hummer approximately a month before he died on September 13, 1996. RR Auction has determined that the vehicle likely the last automobile ever purchased by the iconic rapper, adding obvious increase to its value.
As for the SUV itself, it is equipped with a 6.5 liter, turbo diesel V-8 engine and automatic transmission.

It also comes with promotional cassettes for his 1996 double album All Eyez on Me as well as Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
His Hummer was fully customized by Tupac, himself, including the below features:
The hardtop body features 38″ Dick Cepek off-road lights, a 360-degree spotlight, a grille guard, diamond-plate bumpers, GC Package oversized off-road wheels and tires, and an external PA system with three sirens; area over rear driver side fender bears white lettering, “Eliminator.” The interior is trimmed in burl wood with beige leather upholstery and provides a 12-disc Clarion sound system, Sony GPS, a central tire inflation system, air conditioning, rear sliding glass window, privacy glass, full power options, and a 12,000-pound winch.
