2012-06-06 09:02

Ferrari, in cooperation with Pininfarina, has built a special Ferrari SP 12 EC for guitarist Eric Clapton as part of its one-off programme.

Clapton is known for his love of Ferrari cars, especially the 512 BB models, of which he has owned three.

Based on the Ferrari 458 Italia, the SP 12 EC was built according to the requirements of Clapton, incorporating style elements of the 512 BB.

The 458 Italia was given a new front grille, additional air intakes on the bonnet and different headlights.

The rear was also redesigned with single round tail-lights.

The paintwork also comes in traditional red and black.

Ferrari is however, keeping mum on details of the technology beneath the bonnet and the price for the one-off model.
