The "Purrari" has been painted white
The car's owner, Deadmau5, blames Ferrari's lawyers for the move.

Alas, Toronto, we are sad to report that one of the city’s most iconic cars, Deadmau5’s Purrari, is no more.  

According to a tweet from Deadmau5, a cease-and-desist sent by Ferrari USA forced the self-professed button pusher to remove the distinctive Nyan Cat vinyl that had adorned his Ferrari 458. The car maker didn’t seem to take too kindly to his use of custom Nyan Cat buttons and floor mats.

While good taste might have prevailed, the city’s streets are a shade less colourful as a result. At least we’ll always have the video of Rob Ford going on a ride in the Purrari and ordering five expresso shots in one cup

On the bright side, this likely means Deadmau5 will finally be able to sell the car as originally intended, which means that the Toronto Humane Society is set to get a big cheque. [via Toronto Life]
