It was built in homage to one of Clapton's favourite vehicles, the 1970s Ferrari 512BB, which he crashed.

His passion for Ferrari, music and technology are some of the topics the exceptional guitarist is talking about in the video interview exclusively on Ferrari.com.

In the interview Eric Clapton confirms: “I love the sound of Ferraris and I, as a musician, can confirm that these engines deliver proper music. I have to say that my weak point is the 12-cylinders’ music.”
