Ferrari has officially unveiled the one-off SP12 EC.
Designed by the Centro Stile Ferrari, in collaboration with Pininfarina and engineers from Maranello, the bespoke model was commissioned by musician Eric Clapton. It is based on the 458 Italia and draws inspiration from the 512 BB.
Specifications haven't been announced, but the model reportedly features a 4.5-liter V8 engine with 570 PS (419 kW / 562 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. It should enable the supercar to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 3.4 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 325 km/h (202 mph).
According to Clapton, creating the car was like "being in front of a gigantic blank canvas that had to be painted on." He added it "an incredible experience, one of the most satisfying things I've ever done."
