Eric Clapton's Ferrari request

Celebrities are known for going for the ultimate in style, luxury and class when it comes to most purchases, and cars are no exception. They can also go for great customisation and can get cars designed the way they want. That is precisely what Eric Clapton has done by asking Ferrari to make a special V12 driven 458 Italia for him.

The base vehicle already boasts of a huge power output of 570 HP through its 4.5 liter engine, but the music star wasn't happy with the eight cylinder engine, opting for a 6.0 liter V12 that can deliver 620hp. The twelve cylinder model is what he wants desperately and has placed the request to the maker. He has always been a great Ferrari fan and would like to add to his already impressive collection of the Enzo, 550 Maranello, F512M, and Testarossa.
