Hype News: Nissan Presents Deadmau5 With Nyan Cat Edition GT-R To Make Up For Ferrari Kerfuffle (UPDATED)

For those who follow world famous musician “Deadmau5” on twitter you’d know that enjoys things with a bit of flair.  This is probably why he wrapped a brand new Ferrari 458 with a full Nyan Cat livery and custom “Purrari” badges for the 2014 Gumball 3000 rally.  He originally did it just for the rally but the “Purrari” got such a positive response from his fans and followers that he kept the wrap on for a while.  However, Ferrari was none-to-pleased with the DJ’s take on their newest sports car and actually sent him a cease and desist letter to return the Ferrari back to stock.  Don’t believe us?  Here is the tweet from the man himself:

The Purrari is officially no more and is back to a regular ol’ boring six figure Italian sports car.  It sucked for Mr. Mau5 and definitely put him in a bad mood.  Today Nissan decided to cheer him up by “presenting” him with an Nyan Cat liveried GT-R complete with a “Deadmau5 edition” badge!  See Nissan’s tweet below:

Score one for Nissan!  Maybe this will teach Ferrari’s legal department to lighten up a bit? …Nahhh.  UPDATE: It looks like this is actually just a playful photoshop done by Nissan which is kind of a bummer.  I think they should totally print up a wrap and make it official!
