Eric Clapton’s one-off model will rub shoulders with the best of the Prancing Horse both past and present.
Just like last year, Ferrari will be using the Goodwood Festival of Speed to showcase some of its models, including the F12 Berlinetta, Ferrari’s most powerful road-going model with 731 hp on tap; a bespoke Grigio FF-colored Ferrari FF fitted with the new panoramic glass roof it debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show; and a couple of “Special Projects” division models. The most recognizable of these is Eric Clapton’s 512 BB-inspired SP12 EC, designed by Centro Stile Ferrari with help from Pininfarina and Maranello engineers.
A 458 Spider finished in Ice White Pearl and accented by Grigio Silverstone racing stripes with a special leather and alcantara-clad interior demonstrates what Ferrari’s Tailor-Made program is all about. Scuderia Ferrari will also be representing at Lord March’s estate, demonstrating the 2010 F1 car that Fernando Alonso recorded a quartet of victories in including the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. Other coveted Prancing Horses on display include seven Ferrari 250s from 1953-1965, a Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta, 375 “Grant Piston Ring Special,” a trio of 312s, a 512S, 365 GTB4 Daytona, a F40 and F430. The 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed starts next week. Look out for some exclusive pictures from the event.
