One-Off Ferrari SP12 Based on the 458 Italia and Allegedly Powered by a V12

| |

For the past 24 hours, the web has been abuzz with a one-off Ferrari model that reportedly made its debut last night in an enclosed glass structure at H.R. Owen, a London based dealer of high-end cars.

We don't have anything official on the right-hand drive Ferrari model. However, we see that it wears a license plate that reads SP12 (possibly for Special Program and V12) and that it is based on the 458 Italia with the coachbuilt body resembling the classic 12-cylinder Ferrari 512i BB from the late 1970s, early 1980s.

There are a lot of rumors circulating on the internet, including that the stock V8 was replaced with a V12 engine and that it was custom ordered by English singer and songwriter, Eric (Patrick) Clapton (hence the EPC in the license plate number), but we're not going to jump into conclusions before we hear something official.
