Which is fine! I was just expecting more, considering the amount spent the actual result really seems to be a bit of a let down. But I really hope that EC is happy and that many people love it. In any event, I applaud the idea and the dedication.

I totally agree. It looks like a 355 rear end stuck to a 458 mid section then they went through the parts bin and found a set of Enzo headlights and installed them.

Actually, I like it. Does not look as though Ferrari tried to make it look like anything they currently have in the barn, but remember that Clapton may have asked for this type of look.

It does not look like a sports car, per se, but more like a GT. If you compare it to what Ferrari sells now, it is a massive departure, but it is a nice piece of work regardless.

Seems a bad combo of older Fcars and a 458...not loving it.

Me as well.
The more I see it the better the BB homage works.

I liked it back then and I like it now. Maybe not worth the millions but it's beautiful.

I like it. Artists make art. This is art. I hope it's at Cavallino because I would love to see it.

I know that artists generally like sharing their art with others. It's part of being an artist.

Like it or not, I think most people are thankful for the efforts of artists. I am curious about how he worked with Pininfarina.

Guess work has been keeping me far too occupied over the past year or so since tonight is the first I have seen of this car.

I love the old Boxer (almost as much as my all-time favorite the 288 GTO) and am crazy over the 458. I have to admit there is something about this car that really catches my eye. Kinda like a drop dead gorgeous girl with a little bump on her nose or a small gap in her teeth that makes her just one step away from perfection. Those are the kind of women that make you keep on looking at and Mr. Clapton's car strikes me the same way. As one article I read on the car said....he was known for his own interpretation style of music....so why not the same in his cars?

Gotta say that I really like the retro elements and overall lines of the car, but then again I think EC's best song is Promises, not Layla as most other people would choose :-)

Cheers - Colin Firth
