Ferrari Officially Reveals Eric Clapton's One-Off SP12 EC

Ferrari sure took its time to bring up Eric Clapton’s coachbuilt SP12 EC, but today, more than two months after we first laid eyes on the car through a set of pictures and a video shot at a London dealership, the Italians come out to tell us that the one-off exotic will be featured in the latest issue of the Ferrari Magazine.

The breakdown of the 458 Italia-based model’s name is: ‘SP’ for Special Project, ’12’ for the Ferrari 512BB that inspired its design and of course, ‘EC’ for Eric Clapton.

“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,” said Ferrari in a statement. “So his desire was to drive a car inspired by this model, with influences from the multi-award winning 458 Italia.”

Ferrari tells us that in the magazine article, Clapton talks about his passion and how the idea of a one-off car was born.

We do not get any other specific details about the SP12 EC other than that the Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina and the engineers from Maranello designed the one-off supercar.
