Eric Clapton's one-off Ferrari SP-12 is finished, and it looks fantastic. It has the guts of a 458 Italia, but the body is Pininfarina's interpretation of what a modern-day 512 Berlinetta Boxer should look like.
We've seen images of the car before, but Pininfarina has finally released a few more official images. It looks like the sex.
Unfortunately, the famous guitarist's $4.7 million custom Ferrari retains the 458's original V8 engine. Sigh. We were hoping they'd pay a bit more homage to the 512 and stuff a V12 in there.
I mean, this is Eric Clapton we're talking about here. If he could afford to get a team of world class body designers to custom build an original Ferrari based upon his exact tastes, why couldn't he throw in an extra mil for a bigger mill?
Wait, I know why. He must want to use it as a daily driver. The V8 is undoubtedly better on gas.
