Celebrities are known for their dabbling with outrageous customization options on their cars. Famed Canadian DJ deadmau5 is no different, decking out his Lamborghini Huracan with a familiar (for him) Nyan cat motif. Why? Why not?
We say ‘for him’ because Mr Mau5 (real name Joel Zimmerman) is rather fond of that particular livery. He previously wrapped his Ferrari 458 Italia in the same colour and graphics, even changing the floor mats and exterior badging to reflect his "Purrari".
Ferrari USA were not amused, and sent a cease and desist letter to him in order to have the custom emblems removed.
This time, with the Huracan, we wonder whether Lamborghini will react the same way or just be alright with the modifications to deadmau5’s car. It is his, after all. Some are calling his new troll-on-wheels the Nyanborghini Purracan. Clever.
In case you’re not familiar with Nyan cat, it’s an internet meme that went viral via Youtube some time in 2011. It’s a loop of a cat with the body of a pop tart sailing through space, leaving a trail of rainbows in its wake. Yes indeed.
Here's a picture of the Purrari 458 Italia, just for sake of reference.
There's just something about cars. It's a conveyance, it's a liability, it's a tool; but it can also be a source of joy, pride, inspiration and passion. It's much like clothes versus fashion. And like the latter, the pursuit of perfection never ends.
