Ferrari has revealed the SP12 EC, a one-off commissioned by Eric Clapton and designed by the Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina, taking inspiration from the 512 BB.


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.
