The sportscar once owned by tragic Alice In Chains singer Layne Staley has been put up for sale.

The group's longtime roadie, Tavis, is selling the vehicle and he's offering fans the chance to buy the tragic star's black 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Ws6 car ahead of prospective motor enthusiasts.

In a post on the band's official forum, he writes, "I have worked for Aic for a long while. Some of you already know me. Layne's estate asked me if I would sell his car for them and I of course said I would.

"We wanted to give you fine folks first option on purchasing the car being (sic) it would actually mean something more to you than a non-fan."

It is not clear what the asking price for Staley's car will be.
