Eric Clapton's Ferrari SP12 EC officially unveiled


Quote:
A few months ago a mystery Ferrari was photographed in a London dealership with various sources all but confirming it was a one-off creation built for musician Eric Clapton. Now Ferrari has made it official, formally unveiling the car named SP12 EC.

Built in cooperation with Ferrari's Special Projects program and Pininfarina, the SP12 EC is essentially a 458 Italia clad with all new body panels inspired by the 512 BB of the late 1970s and early 1980s, of which Clapton has owned three. The musician reportedly wanted one of Ferrari's 6.0-liter V12s squeezed into the engine bay, but all signs indicate that the 458 Italia's 4.5-liter is still in place. The only thing missing is a set of vintage series wheels from HRE.

Ferrari isn't revealing the price tag of Clapton's one-off SP12 EC, but estimates put the tally right around the £3 million mark, which seems to be the going rate for a bespoke supercar from the Italian manufacturer.

more than you can afford pal. Eric Clapton.

edit: actually, £3M sounds relatively cheap for a custom car by Pininfarina..

When you're pretty much one of the best guitar players to ever have lived, you deserve to have your own custom Ferrari.

Yea, it's definitely not for everyone. However, it's one of the styling cues from the 512BB...

+1. Some really nice classic lines and curves, and modernized revisions up front. I don't mind the silver vents so much. I think it would look better with the black side to run flat instead of swooping up towards the rear though.

both the 458 and 512BB shouldnt share design elements imo... they are best kept as two individual cars, not fused together...

just doesnt look... right, especially knowing it started off as a 458

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".
