Ferrari Tells Deadmau5 to Get Rid of His Purrari 458

Earlier this year, Deadmau5 (aka Joel Zimmerman), decided to give his Ferrari 458 Italia a unique wrap. It entailed turning the whole car into a tribute to the Nyan Cat. It seems that adorning a Ferrari with a cat with a Pop-Tart body that flies through space leaving a rainbow trail in its wake did not amuse Ferrari one bit.

The customization didn’t end with just the over-the-top wrap. It extended to custom badges and floor mats with a Purrari logo, and that seems to be what set Ferrari over the edge. They decided this was not acceptable and sent Deadmau5 a cease and desist letter to have it all removed. Guess the Italians aren’t fans of Pop Tarts. Or cats.

Now, the Ferrari 458 Italia is just a Ferrari 458 Italia without anything at all to distinguish it from its brothers. It is very vanilla, truly, because the car hiding underneath that bright blue wrap and flying Pop-Tart cat was just white.

Deadmau5 didn’t say if the reason he removed everything was because of the cease and desist or because he’s getting ready to sell it, but either way, poor Nyan cat is a goner.
