Deadmau5 has been given a cease and desist order by Ferrari.

The DJ had put his 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider (F1 Edition) up for sale earlier in the year, customised with images of internet meme Nyan Cat.

Deadmau5 (real name Joel Thomas Zimmerman) has now taken to Twitter to reveal that the carmaker had some issues with is customisations, reports Gigwise.

"Yeah it was mostly about the custom floor matts and the custom purrari badges. Whatever. It's just a normal ass 458 now. All good," he wrote in one post. You can read the tweets below.

Deadmau5 had unveiled the car on March 31 this year and used it in his 'Coffee Run' series on YouTube, even inviting Toronto mayor Rob Ford to be the first guest to share an in-car coffee with him. The DJ and his driving partner Tory Belleci completed the Gumball 3000 rally in the car in June, travelling the 3000 miles from Miami to Ibiza in seven days. The pair won the coveted Spirit Of The Gumball trophy.
