Eric Clapton is enough of a Ferrari enthusiast that the Italian automaker’s Special Projects Program in Maranello, in collaboration with Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina, designed and built the special SP12 EC one-off for the living guitar legend. The vehicle is inspired by the original 458 Italia, with body panels inspired by the 1980s V12-powered 512 BB, a model with which Clapton was so enamored he purchased three of them over the years. Estimates put the value of the SP12 EC at around $5 million. Slowhand likened his participation in the project as “being in front of a gigantic blank canvas that had to be painted on,” adding that the process was “an incredible experience, one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done.”
