Are you a huge fan a electronic dance music, Internet memes, and in the market for a customized Ferrari? Then today is your lucky day. EDM star Deadmau5, real name Joel Zimmerman, is selling his Ferrari 458 Spider on Craigslist. He calls it the Purrari, and it features a full-body wrap of the eight-bit Nyan Cat, pink brake calipers, prancing cat logos, a Purrari emblem 6,500 miles on the odometer. It's currently located in Toronto, Canada, with an asking price of $380,000. Any amount offered over that is being donated to the Toronto Humane Society.

In addition to the car, the buyer gets an iPod full of "nyancat songs" and a meeting with Zimmerman to say goodbye to his Purrari over a cup of coffee. If you're not in the Toronto area, he is willing to ship the feline automobile anywhere in North America. Obviously, a blue, cat-themed Ferrari isn't to everyone's taste, so Zimmerman can remove the wrap at the buyer's request... though he won't be happy about it.

If you're curious why Zimmerman would sell such a personalized item, it appears a new supercar has his eye now. On May 28, he tweeted about driving a McLaren 650S and announced the Purrari would go up for sale soon. We can only imagine what theme his next ride gets.

      Deadmau5 is a professional troll, this car is almost as famous as he is.

      Do you think he might sell it with a dead mouse inside the car? I wouldn't put it past him.

      not a fan of his music or his taste in vinyl wraps, but I sure hope someone pays big bucks for it if just to help out the Toronto Humane Society. Lots of animals in that region need help, and the money could go a long way to helping some nice puppies from meeting the gas chamber. Adopt, don't buy from breeders. My pitbulls were/are all adopted, and all amazing animals.

      PLEASE tell me that is a easily removable vinyl wrap and not paint.

        I don't give a crap if the car were owned by royalty even. The content has little cultural or historical value, so it will come off if it touches my hands.

          If he read the article he would know this is painted on, with paint made from polar bears, and baby seals.

        If you buy a car from celebrity rarely you want to remove the signs that car was owned by said person.

      What a brutal wrap! I'm a huge Ferrari fan as well as Deadmau5 fan but this thing is absolutely embarrassing!

        I like Ferraris, Deadmau5, and Nyan cats, and I think this car is a travesty.

      Don't know what a dead mouse is but I hope the new owner of that car removes that tasteless crap from a beautiful car.

      People who do this to these kinds of cars should not be allowed near these cars.

      Another example of how having money does not equate with having any taste. What a douche to do this a Ferrari, and if he truly is that much of a baller he should donate the ENTIRE amount to charity.

      Honestly i don't know who's doing the majority of the editing for Autoblog lately, but it seems like most stories are consistently 3-7 days behind other popular websites...I wont mention any names because I don't want anybody to "gawk" over to their site....
