Nearly a couple of months ago, we have already seen the first pictures and video of the Eric Clapton’s coachbuilt SP12 EC when presented in a London dealership. However at May 25th the Italian automaker has brought the exotic vehicle to public, the company also said that the one- off model would be featured in the Ferrari Magazine to be the newest issue.
The company had named the 458 Italia- based model with ‘SP’ that is short of Special Project, ‘12’ that stands for the Ferrari 512BB which is the vehicle’s design inspiration and the last is ‘EC’ for Eric Clapton.
Ferrari stated that the world- popular guitar and singer has been presented to one special Ferrari model, the 512 BB. Eric Clapton himself has already had three over the years. Thus, his longing is to drive a car inspired by such model with influences from the multi-award winning 458 Italia.
The Italian company said that in the magazine article, Eric Clapton would mostly explain about his passion and how the idea of a one- off car was born. According to some reports, the one- off supercar will be built in conjunction with the Centro Stile Ferrari with Pininfarina in collaboration with the Maranello’s engineers. Unfortunately, so far no other specific details about the SP 12 EC than that news we have stated above.
Well, we may wait for the Ferrari Magazine to read the full story of the born of the one- off car. However, we will make you update with any further information that may be released a few weeks later, so stay tune. Don’t forget to check some official pictures we provided below.
