The Ferrari SP12 EC was created “as homage to Clapton’s career and his long lasting experience as a Ferrari owner.”
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. So his desire was to drive a car inspired by this model, with influences from the multi-award winning 458 Italia.
“Meticulous attention in terms of style and technology was paid to the proportions and architecture of the SP12 EC – which is part of Ferrari’s One-Off Programme”
For Eric Clapton, following the project through from what was, essentially, a blank canvas, was “one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done.”
Eric Clapton talks about his passion and how the idea of a one-off car was born in the latest issue of the Ferrari Official Magazine.
