SPIED: One-Off Ferrari 458 SP12

| March 23, 2012 | 3 Comments

Car journos in different parts of the world are getting excited over the news of a new one-off Ferrari that surfaced last night and we are no different with the levels of excitement. The car was seen for the first time inside a glass structure at a London based car dealer called H.R. Owen. This car is a Right Hand Drive and to the best of our knowledge, is based on a 458 Italia. The bodywork sees a lot of hints of the 70s Ferrari 512i BB and if rumors are to be believed, this car was custom ordered by English singer and songwriter, Eric (Patrick) Clapton. The car is said to be fitted with a V12. The name SP12 comes from the license plates that read as SP12 EPC and this again points out towards a V12 under that tasty bodywork, with the EPC being the initials of Clapton. Stay tuned for more info on this car as we get busy with digging out some facts about it.

    Hi, its foolish to compare a 1.4L engine 1.0L engine.

    This review looks intentionally pushing back fogo.

    FYI…..Figo 1.4 TDCI is top performer than Swift 1.3L MJD engine, then where is the comparison to a 1.0L engine……Funny

  3. The engine compartment cover seems to be raised and the front looks seems like it is from one of the concepts that was designed for the 612GTO.. Anyway dint like the look much, an 458 successor in terms of looks alone I guess is tough even for Ferrari or Pininfarina..
