Deadmau5 has sold his McLaren P1 to pay for his newest stage design, Cube 2.1.
On average, the limited edition McLaren P1 sells for $1.15 million, so that gives us a glimpse of just how much money was put into deadmau5’s Cube 2.1. He is known for his love of sports cars as displayed in his multiple coffee runs in the P1 with some of the world’s most renowned DJ/producers.
Deadmau5 was hands-on with the design and development of the Cube 2.1 that’s slated to go on the road beginning 29th March 2017 at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
Thanks to Twitter, we're privy to the news of the sale of the P1 for the cube. See the interchange with a fan regarding the P1 sacrifice below.
