The car has been delivered to Mr Clapton apparently. Not seen pics of the finished car - hopefully some time in March I am told.

It's supposed to look like a rebodied 512 boxer -- not a 458. It's a 458 under the skin but looks like a boxer on the outside.

That's the latest rumor.

That's correct and from early pics I saw it looks stunning. But then the 512 had great proportions.

Me too. It's amazing that there are no pictures of this car (yet).

There have been no reliable reports of a 458 with a V12 engine and someone at a reasonably high level in the factory actually told me it couldn't be done due to homologation issues w.r.t. EU law.

I can't believe no pics have ever surfaced on this.

At some point it has to make it's debut......just how long do we have to wait though?

Edit: I found this. Maybe?

I read in last month Forza that there are a few Special cars made that (Custom) that are secret. They apparently delivered 10 custome one off already and i only know of

SP1 (China)
612 K
SA 45
P540 Superfast Aperta

Is Clapton's car part of these 10 custom one offs?

I would love to know more about the missing 6...
