Cheers for clearing that up   :doh: :thumbsup:, thought that it would have been a nightmare to register if it had been replaced. Just went off what i had seen on numerous sites.

He apparently initially wanted a 12 cylinder; but it couldn't be done because of the regulations. Probably where the story started.

I like the theory of a one off bespoke Ferrari;but with today's regulations, you are going to get something that looks like a body kit on the donor car. I think it's the crash test regs that cause the major problems when you dramatically veer away from the donor car. It would get astronomically expensive if you had to build multiple examples to crash test.

I don't know how the P4/5 was ever registered.

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.
