Ferrari SP12 EC


Não basta ter uma Ferrari: ela deve ser exclusiva. Essa regra só vale para alguns clientes mais do que especiais da marca, por isso ela construiu e divulgou algumas fotos do modelo SP12 EC, carro desenvolvido especialmente ao músico Eric Clapton, um dos mais fieis clientes da montadora italiana. A criação ficou de responsabilidade do Centro Stile Ferrari, em colaboração com o estúdio Pininfarina.

O carro usou como base uma 458 Italia, com linhas que remetem à 512 BB (Berlinetta Boxer), modelo da Ferrari produzido entre o final dos anos 1970 e início dos 1980, do qual Eric teve três exemplares. A única coisa que está faltando neste carro são rodas vintage da HRE.

Não foram divulgados detalhes técnicos sobre o carro, mas especulações indicam que a SP12 EC usa o mesmo motor V8 4.5 da 458 Italia, apesar de Clapton supostamente ter pedido que colocassem um V12 6.0 no cofre do carro. Dessa forma, supõe-se que o propulsor é capaz de gerar 562 cavalos de potência, fazendo o carro acelerar da inércia aos 100 km/h em apenas 3,4 segundos, e a velocidade máxima seria de 325 km/h.

Exclusively in the Ferrari Magazine the great English musician talks about his passion for Ferrari and his one-off model.

For a Ferrari enthusiast and great musician like Eric Clapton a one-off car just had to be produced. Designed by the Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina and the engineers from Maranello, the 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. Exclusively in the latest issue of the Ferrari Official Magazine Eric Clapton talks about his passion and how the idea of a one-off car was born.

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 – making this exceptional car even more significant. Just like music is created, applying the right notes in the right places to build a musical score, so was the creative process behind the SP12 EC.

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." Unique and irreproducible like the final car.
