Eric Clapton’s love for the brand Ferrari has been rewarded by the company with a one-off designed by the Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina and the engineers from Maranello : the SP12 EC. The one-off Ferrari was created under Ferrari’s One-Off Programme as homage to Clapton’s career and his long lasting experience as a Ferrari owner.
Clapton has owned three 512 BBs over the years. His desire was to drive a car inspired by this model, with influences from the 458 Italia. Eric Clapton had the privilege of following the project from the start, which Ferrari says was ‘a blank canvas’. Claption said this was ‘one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done.”
Meticulous attention in terms of style and technology was paid to the proportions and architecture of the SP12 EC making this exceptional car even more significant. Just like music is created, applying the right notes in the right places to build a musical score, so was the creative process behind the SP12 EC says Ferrari.
