Wow! She sure looks 'wonderful tonight'!
Yes I think clearer pics would give a better perspective but I also think the design is great. I guess when you are Eric Clapton you just get what you want.

Personally,strictly personally(its Clapton,after all!),I would have given the dual tone treatment and the silver on the bonnet fins a miss. And the headlamps scream Enzo,not something I'd love either,because I don't want my ONE-OFF Ferrari to have bits that are a nod to some other production car .Yes, I know its the Enzo,but still.

But the rear is just incredibly sexy. I might stick to the regular 458 because I'm a sucker for Ferrari's current design language.Those curves,they grow on you,they give the cars a very intense character.They go a long way in giving them a soul. Give me some time on the SP12 though,I might just fall for it.

Dont like it all.Its a confusing mix of old design elements and new ones.If i am rich,i shall get myself a 458 and a Testarossa,and not try to mix both.

Only thing i like is the egg crate grille,which infact looks really good and has been well integrated rather well.

Achingly beautiful. It's just so perfect, this car. I don't know how you guys don't like it!



It's just got the right lines this car. Maybe the grey could have been given a miss. But even then, it's just mouthwatering.

The fact that it's one of a kind and owned by someone who deserves it, so to speak, makes it that much more special.

True, it might not appeal to a lot to modern Fezza design fans, but considering the fact that they were trying to replicate the 512BB, I say, they've pretty much nailed it.

Thats how one knocks on heavens door.

Fabulous. Totally in line with the most beautiful Ferrari's that we grew up seeing. The rear specialy is to die for, even love the matte black lower body.

Only the front bonnet fins could have been either body coloured or matte black. Otherwise, completely in line with Eric Clapton.
