Ferrari have sent Deadmau5 a cease and desist letter after the DJ/Producer put his customised car up for sale earlier this year.

Affectionately known as the ‘Purarri’, the producer’s Ferrari 458 Spider was decorated as a homage to internet sensation Nyan Cat, which has a pop-tart body and flies through space with a rainbow trail behind it (obviously).

Deadmau5 took to twitter earlier this week to rant about the legal issues, stating that he had since taken the wrap off the car, whilst Ferrari are yet to comment on their issues with the customisation. See the series of tweets below:

Deadmau5 did however make good use of the custom car, taking it around Europe on the Gumball 3000 rally earlier this summer.

The DJ/Producer will play the iTunes festival this week in London. Stay tuned to Gigwise for ongoing coverage across the month of events at The Roundhouse throughout September.

Below: The 7 most amusing Deadmau5 rants - Justin Bieber, Kanye and more

  • David Guetta: "David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks - like, 'Here's one with Akon, check it out!"

  • Skrillex (again): "Skrillex isn't doing anything too technical. He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he's just playing his shit."

  • Paris Hilton: "The Mayans saw this shit coming. It's over. All I'm trying to do, is put on my life jacket and swim as far away from this shipwreck as fast as I can."

  • Madonna: "Very classy there Madonna. Quite the fucking philanthropist. But hey, at least yer hip and trendy! Fucking can't smack my head hard enough right now. What the fuck was that? Fuck off you fucking idiot."

  • All DJs: "They're like fucking lawyers. You need them, but they're fucking cunts."

  • Justin Bieber (again): "You little prick. You just fucking ruined every chance I ever had of getting on fucking Top Gear."

  • Kanye West: "Fucking Kanye. I fucking hate him. He's just trying too hard."

  • Justin Bieber: "Someone needs to jump on Justin's stage and start telling him what to play. I apologize on behalf of Canada%u2026 Dear @justinbieber , would you please grow the fuck up already? In the meantime, put a shirt on, and stay away from nightclubs.

  • Skrillex: "Most days I just wake up to a time line that's all skrillex this or Madonna that. Hardly give a Fuck. EDM sellouts bitching about who's got a good label and or who's sad. Welcome to 2015. That's about all I'm getting outta this"
