An anonymous 2Pac fan in the Midwest just paid more than $337,000 for the late-rapper's customized Hummer H1 at auction, CNN reports. Tupac Shakur bought the vehicle three months before he was killed in 1996 at the age of 25. An executive vice president at RR Auction calls the Hummer an “incredible piece of hip-hop history that evokes the invincible spirit of one of rap's true lyrical giants.” According to Motor Trend, the value of the lot was only estimated at $100,000. In addition to multiple customized features—12-disc CD changer, spotlight, external PA system, and more—the Hummer comes with Tupac's vanity license plate and a cassette of Michael Jackson's Thriller.
