Eric Clapton has famously sold his most famous guitars, with proceeds going to his Crossroads charity. But the U.K. rock-blues legend obviously still has money to burn.
He recently ordered a bespoke Ferrari sports car that reportedly cost $4.6 million. Clapton worked with the car company's Special Projects division to re-body a Ferrari 458 Italia itself worth $275,000 in standard issue.
Prototype drawings of Clapton's own model have now been posted see them here.
And there is also footage of the wonder-car being driven to delivery from London to Clapton. Note the "EPC" plates "Eric Patrick Clapton". Clapton, like Billy F. Gibbons and others, is a renowned car-head. But he will have to be careful with this ridiculously expensive beast.
They called E.C. "Slowhand" in the 1970s. Let's hope he doesn't get caught for speeding in this 4.5 liter V8 machine.
