ERIC CLAPTON’S CUSTOM MADE FERRARI SP12 EC

Eric Clapton Custom FerrariMost people would consider Ferrari ownership as being a special experience reserved for those rich few who can afford such luxury. Most would imagine that these Ferrari owners walked into a dealership and purchased the supercar of their dreams. Not the case for Eric Clapton, who had Ferrari custom make a 1 of 1 supercar, the Ferrari SP12 EC.

Designed by the Ferrari Style Centre in collaboration with Pininfarina and Maranello’s most senior engineers, the SP12 EC is a custom one-off of the Ferrari 458 Italia with design styles influenced by Eric Clapton’s favoriate Ferrari, the Ferrari flat-12 BB 512i of the late 70s and early 80s, of which Clapton owns at least three examples. The musician reportedly wanted his custom order to include a 6.0-liter V12 Ferrari engine, after some discussion between Clapton and the Special Ferrari team, the decision was made to go with the standard engine used in the Ferrari 458 Italia.  Evidence of Clapton’s desire to have a V12 can be seen in the name SP12 EC (Special Production 12 cylinders, Eric Clapton). Body modifications made to resemble the Ferrari 512 include a Boxer-like rear deck, lower trim and for some reason, Enzo headlights! The price tag on this custom piece is not exactly cheap, while Ferrari will not disclose the actual price of sale; the SP12 EC is rumored to have cost Clapton $4.8 million.
