Eric Clapton’s one-off model will rub shoulders with the best of the Prancing Horse both past and present.
Just like last year
, Ferrari will be using the Goodwood Festival of Speed to showcase some of its models, including the F12 Berlinetta, Ferrari’s most powerful road-going model with 731 hp on tap; a bespoke Grigio FF-colored Ferrari FF fitted with the new panoramic glass roof it debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show
; and a couple of “Special Projects” division models. The most recognizable of these is Eric Clapton’s 512 BB-inspired SP12 EC
, designed by Centro Stile Ferrari with help from Pininfarina and Maranello engineers.
