Ferrari SP12 EC is the surprise at Goodwood

Ferrari is the highest expression of what defines excellence. Excellence found in everything, in technological innovation, performance, visionary styling and the sheer thrill of driving. Ferrari is one of the most wanted or at least the most dreamt of cars. And it sure knows how to spoil its clients for whom, many times, provided unique cars, exclusive editions limited to one product. It is the case of the Ferrari SP12 EC created especially to please the famous singer Eric Clapton.

Most of these specially designed vehicles are well kept personal, away from the public eyes, and it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see something like this going side by side with the regular vehicles on a regular road. That’s why the apparition of the Ferrari SP12 EC at Goodwood Festival of Speed is a huge surprise.

The Ferrari SP12 EC was created in the Centro Stile Ferrari, on command for Eric Clapton. He wished for a modern variant of the 512 Berlinetta Boxer. The result was this awesome supercar powered by a4.5-liter V8 engine outputting 570 HP (419 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. The car is assumed to have cost 3 million pounds and a lot of the details regarding it are still kept secret. Anyhow, Eric Clapton can sing “you look wonderful tonight” every night in his garage, as he admitted he is feeling really satisfied with his acquisition.
