Eric Clapton is a man who has it all. Fame, fortune, and incredible talent with a guitar, and now he’s getting a special Ferrari to call his very own—the unique Ferrari SP12 EC.

Designed by Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina and Maranello, the custom-made SP12 EC (that’s short for Eric Clapton) is a modern design with retro stylings. It’s based on Eric Clapton’s favorite Ferrari, the 512BB.

From the Official Ferrari Magazine: “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.”

Clapton, who was involved with the design since its inception, says that embarking on the project was like “being in front of a gigantic blank canvas that had to be painted on.”
