Nissan offers a Nyan Cat GT-R to Deadmau5 to replace his Purrari right meow

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 5, 2014

Deadmau5 had some troubles with Ferrari after he wrapped his 458 Spider in a Nyan Cat-theme and replaced the Prancing Horse badges with some custom ones that changed the name of the vehicle into a ‘Purarri’. In fact, Ferrari took things even further and sent Joel Zimmerman a.k.a. Deadmau5 a cease-and-desist letter.

Apparently, Ferrari was offended by the Purrari badges and forced the electronic music artist to remove the wrap and badges off his custom vehicle as he is planning to sell the car.

Deadmau5 focused his attention on a McLaren 650S but Nissan might offer him a better deal though. The Japanese company used Twitter to catch Deadmau5’s attention with a custom-wrapped GT-R wrapped in a Nyan Cat-theme, same that was found on his Purarri.

Even more interesting is the badge found on the vehicle: GT-R Deadmau5-Spec. We don’t know if Deadmau5 will actually go for it and buy himself a Nissan GT-R but we do know that the Godzilla is actually faster than the Italian supercar.

The GT-R is powered by a VR38DETT 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that generates 545 hp and 463 lb-ft of torque. As a result, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 mph) in under 3.0 seconds, while top speed is limited at 196 mph or 315 km/h. In the United States, the Nissan GT-R starts at $101,770, which makes it also cheaper than its Italian rival.
