Superannuated songwriter Eric Clapton just shelled out around $5 million for a custom-made Ferrari dubbed the SP12 EC.

Built in cooperation with Ferrari’s Special Projects program and Pininfarina, the SP12 EC is basically a 458 Italia with all new body panels inspired by the 512 BB of the late 1970s and early 1980s, of which Clapton has owned three.

Not half bad for the man responsible for “Layla”…
