Creamfields is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with Deadmau5 headlining alongside Annie Mac, Gorgan City and many more. Deadmau5 is also famous for his love of cars, especially his own custom designed Ferrari, Lamborghini and Nissan GT-R to name a few.
With Creamfields on this weekend, we felt it was the perfect time to check out the garage of one of their biggest headliners. Would you choose any of these cars for yourself?
Cars cause conflicts
Deadmau5 famously conflicted with Ferrari after transforming his 458 Italia into his legendary Purrari. It resulted from Deadmau5 wrapping his Ferrari in vinyl as a tribute to Nyan cat.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is one of the greatest Ferraris ever built. It takes the manufacturer back to its base principle of passion and power combined to create greatness. It has a 4.5-litre V8 engine producing 562 bhp and revs to a stratospheric 9,000 rpm. It darts from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds and reaches the top speed of 202 mph.
Its interior is close to perfection with a driver-orientated dashboard, bundles of legroom and headroom for practicality and comfort all around. You can see why Deadmau5 wanted to turn it into his Purrari.
Ferrari were not pleased and sent a cease and desist order because of the vinyl wrap and custom badges Deadmau5 had put on the Ferrari he owned. However, Deadmau5 wasn’t going to let Ferrari have the last word, so he unwrapped his Purrari, sold it as a normal Ferrari 458 Italia and replaced it with the Nyanborghini Purracan (guess the real name?). Lamborghini seem less concerned with the custom job Deadmau5 has done on his Huracan.
The Lamborghini Huracan is the newest baby Lambo and a perfect replacement for the 458 Italia. DeadMau5 chose the perfect car for the Nyanborghini. It carries a 5.2-litre V10 engine also housed in its predecessor, the Gallardo. There have been some tweaks leading to 602 bhp. That power leads to the Huracan racing from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds. It reaches its top speed of 202 mph.
Lamborghini love to create interiors that make you feel like you’re sat in a jet fighter. It even has a jet fighter start button, activating the V10 engine with a rumble. There are beautiful switches all across the dashboard and soft leather covering everything, especially the steering wheel.
While all this was going on, Nissan joined the fray by trolling Ferrari. They photoshopped a Nissan GT-R with the Nyan Cat wrap and gifted it to DeadMau5 to replace his Purrari (spoilt for choice).
Deadmau5 didn’t stop his custom designs with the Nyan Cat. For the 2015 Gumball Rally, he chose to wrap his two McLarens in a blackjack deck. He dressed his McLaren P1 in an Ace of Spades vinyl, and his McLaren 650S is the Queen of Hearts.
The McLaren P1 is part of the holy trinity of hybrid hypercars that also includes the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spider. It is a £866,000 hybrid supercar producing 903 bhp from both its engine and motors. The engine available is a 3.8-litre bi-turbocharged V8 generating 727 bhp. The motors develop 176 bhp taking it up to a combined 903 bhp. With all that power, the P1 dashes from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph.
The McLaren 650S was inspired by the P1 in many ways, making it an excellent partner to the P1 in the blackjack set. The 650S also has a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 developing 641 bhp. That power gives it an acceleration time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 207 mph. Deadmau5 loves his speed.
It is clear Deadmau5 loves personalising his cars, ensuring everyone knows they belong to him. His garage is filled with amazing cars. Apart from these vinyl wrapped custom vehicles he also owns the following cars:
Porsche 911 Carrera
