Eric Clapton, known as 'God' by his loyal fans, has had a special one-off car built by Ferrari.

Clapton's bespoke supercar pays tribute to his favourite Ferrari, the 512BB, but is built from a 458 Italia.

The SP12 EC was designed by Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with celebrated design house Pininfarina as homage to Clapton's career - not to mention his well-documented taste for Maranello's finest.

Meticulous attention was paid to the car's style and its on-board technology in the SP12 EC project - which was built as part of Ferrari's ultra-exclusive Portfolio One-Off Programme.

Clapton, who followed the project through from start to finish, said it was "one of the most satisfying things I've ever done."
