Eric Clapton wants a V12 Ferrari 458 Italia
Okay, we know the Ferrari 458 Italia is powered by a 4.5 Liter V8 engine that delivers 570 HP. That’s more than enough for most of us, but Eric Clapton wants more than that! He asked Ferrari to create a special V12-powered 458 Italia just for him! Will he get it?
His request was the 6.0 liter V12 engine delivering 620 hp from the 599 GTB. Eric Clapton is famous for his Ferrari passion, but apparently he never particularly loved the eight cylinders.
In a previous interview, Eric Clapton said: "I love the sound of Ferraris and I, as a musician, can confirm that these engines deliver proper music. I have to say that my weak point is the 12-cylinders’ music." So, it’s no wonder he wants a V12 in his future Italia.
