Almost 25 years after he was killed, the car Tupac Shakur was riding when he was fatally shot is on the auction block.

The black BMW 750il, with 121,000 miles on the odometer, is listed on Celebritycars.com for a starting price of $1.75 million, and is being sold by the current owner, Death Row Records.

A $20,000 refundable deposit is required before interested parties can bid for the ride.

This is the first time this car has ever been up for sale or on display since [Shakur’s] death in 1996,” the listing reads. “It has been completely restored to the condition it was in before his death and has just received a new coat of paint.”

The car was featured in a 2018 episode of the History Channel reality series, “Pawn Stars.”

On Sept. 7, 1996, Shakur was riding in the BMW with Death Row CEO Suge Knight driving, after attending a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand in Vegas.

At a stoplight, the prolific rapper and budding actor was shot four times in a drive-by shooting.

After being kept on life support in an intensive care unit at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, Shakur — also known as 2Pac, Makaveli, or simply Tupac — was pronounced dead six days later on Sept. 13, 1996.
