------------------------------------------ INFO BELOW! ------------------------------------------

This is the new Ferrari SP12, a Special Project creation built for Eric Clapton for a cost of £3m over a period of 2 years. The car is based on the framework and engine of the Ferrari 458 Italia but features numerous design changes to tweak it back to an appearance of Ferraris of old including the 512 Boxer and the headlights from the Enzo.

The car had originally planned to be a 12 cyclinder version but clearly this was too much to ask and as such it seems to run the V8 and controls of the normal car.

This footage was shot for Shmee150, fairly discretely hence the wobbles and lack of focus while the car was outside. I must apologise for the imperfect quality but felt the unique footage of this one-of-one car was worth posting.

Thanks for watching, Tim

I think if I gave a panda bear some cocaine and a VHS camcorder, we'd get better footage than this.

You don't know how to hold a camera shmee
+Hanif Purbaya I didn't know you could prohibit videos taken outside, which is still shaky. 
Hanif Purbaya
or, it was prohibited to record the film so he did in such a way that those people wouldnt notice he was recording
Whats up with the cameraman, its not hard to hold it still !!

Are you always that shakey when meeting a celebrity car!!?? Jeezaz man, steady Eddy!!......
OK, my bad :/ & thanks for pointing that out Perry!... I must say I'd forgotten about this car - looking at it again, Clapton has bought this for investment I'd guess... it looks no where near 3mils worth of car being so bland. Ferrari pump some crap from time to time. Good job this is a one off - the reason why it's such a shocking price. Clapton's storing this for a long time if he wants to profit!

The car is as great as the cameraman is retarded.
Ruin perfectly good cars by putting steering wheels on the wrong side.
