Word in the forum world is that Ferrari has built Eric Clapton a custom built version of the Ferrari 458 Italia.

According to someone who is well connected in the factory on FerrariChat.com:

“My contacts in the factory told me it is a 458 that has been given a different body, a modern variant of the Boxer. It is not a V12 – to get a V12 458 on the road would be very, very, difficult and expensive because it would need new crash tests etc.. To replace the body is much easier. At least – this is what I was told.

Power for Clapton’s custom built 458 Italia comes from a mid-rear mounted 4.5L V8 producing 570-hp. Hopefully, Ferrari will drop some official images later.
