Juno Award-winning electronic musician Deadmau5 has run afoul of Craigslist's stringent sales rules, after attempting to sell his customized Ferrari 458.
Deadmau5, real name Joel Zimmerman, posted the car on Toronto's local Craigslist, with a price of $380,000. However, the posting was soon flagged for removal and taken offline.
After being notified of the posting being taken down, Deadmau5 tweeted that he would soon set up a new site for the sale, if the bids he already received did not work out.
The Italian sports car is covered in a vinyl wrap, depicting the Internet meme Nyan Cat. Zimmerman listed the car as a "Purrari," in excellent condition. Its size and dimensions are listed as "Nyan."
In addition to the car, the winning buyer would recieve an iPod full of Nyan Cat-related music and the chance to go for a coffee run in the car with Deadmau5. Deadmau5 hosts a series of YouTube videos where he visits Tim Hortons with celebrities such as Skrillex and Pharrell Williams.
All proceeds from the sale will go to the Toronto Humane Society.
