It’s been reported that deadmau5 is worth approximately $53 million, which is not bad at all considering that his first studio album was released eleven years ago. deadmau5 also has a thing for cars. Over the years, the 35-year-old Canadian got to own beauties which include a Ferrari 458 Spider (a.k.a. the Purrari), Lamborghini Huracan (a.k.a. the Purracan), and so forth.

Now, though, deadmau5 is entitled to add a further exotic machine to his running total. The man recently took to Twitter to tell us that his “inbox NEVER SMELLED SO GOOD!!!” The attachment clears what deadmau5 is on about: “Dear Joel, congratulations! You’ve been selected for the opportunity to purchase a new Ford GT!” I swear I've heard the champagne pop.

That’s right, ladies and gents! deadmau5 is chuffed to bits because he is now entitled to spend $450,000 or thereabout on a 2017 Ford GT, which is probably the most hyped-about supercar of the moment. This bit of news comes right after Amy Macdonald also got selected to buy the twin-turbocharged V6 supercar and, of course, after a flurry of rejection letters.

deadmau5 and Amy should consider themselves lucky, though. No less than 6,506 people have fully completed the application form to get their hands on the GT. Despite the immense demand, 500 people were selected to buy the GT. Of those 500 units already spoken for, 250 will be built per year.

And yes, people are waiting in line for a $450,000-something car with a Ford badge up front and a V6 in the middle. It’s pretty mad when you think about it, but then again, the 2017 Ford GT promises to be one hell of a machine.
