It's kinda rare to let Ferrari to make exclusively for you a special one-off. In the years they've made just five unique creations.. in 2006 the P4/5 based on the Ferrari Enzo, the 2008 Ferrari SP1 based on the F430, the Ferrari P540 Superfast Aperta in 2009, the Ferrari Superamerica 45 in 2011 and this is it, the Ferrari V12 Boxer Tribute, another special Ferrari made for the famous singer Eric Clapton! Looks like the official name is SP12 EC (Eric Clapton).
There have been rumors for over a year about a special Ferrari 458 Italia with the Ferrari 599 V12 engine ordered by Eric Clapton, and this is the final result of his request. We've always heard that he wanted a 458 Italia with a V12 engine, but this one has still the same V8 of the 458. The base is taken from the 458 Italia but with a different style, just like the name says, it's a tribute of many different Ferraris of the past. For example, the headlights are taken from the Enzo, the front grille reminds of the 512bb, the back is reminds the 288 GTO and 308. I have always loved the one-off Ferraris, what do you think about?
