    Re: Ferrari SP12 EC - Eric Clapton's custom 458

    Gnil:

    A  waist of money . It doesn't even look good enlightened

     

    100% my thoughts! What nice cars you could have bought with this amount of money. And worst of all - you still have a prototype, ratteling, shaking - no sophisticated construction and testing like crash-tests, etc. done to it

    Ferrari SP12 EC

    Ferrari has revealed the SP12 EC, a one-off commissioned by Eric Clapton and designed by the Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina, taking inspiration from the 512 BB.

    The Ferrari SP12 EC was created “as homage to Clapton’s career and his long lasting experience as a Ferrari owner.”

    The world-famous guitar player has been attached to one particular Ferrari model: the 512 BB, of which he has owned three over the years. So his desire was to drive a car inspired by this model, with influences from the multi-award winning 458 Italia.

    “Meticulous attention in terms of style and technology was paid to the proportions and architecture of the SP12 EC – which is part of Ferrari’s One-Off Programme”

    For Eric Clapton, following the project through from what was, essentially, a blank canvas, was “one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done.”

    Eric Clapton talks about his passion and how the idea of a one-off car was born in the latest issue of the Ferrari Official Magazine.

    It looks good!


    For 4.75 million USD it better should. Smiley

    But if you ask me, the SP12 EC looks quite good when viewed from some certain angles, but overall the design doesn't fit together.

    I love it kiss It looks very retro, almost like a GT40 like redo of the F355 wink


    Re: Ferrari SP12 EC - Eric Clapton's custom 458

    It's modelled on a 512 BB.

    Interestingly if you watch his DVD "Sessions for Robert J", you see him pitching up at the studio in a.... Porsche 911..!

    (BTW - along with the George Harrison tribute concert DVD "Songs for George", it's my favourite music DVD of all.  OK, as well as Live in Hyde Park...)
