Ferrari Builds EC A Road Rocket

Quattroroute, an Italian magazine, has reported that Eric Clapton has made a personal request that Ferrari make him a 458 Italia model with the higher end V12 power plant featured in the company's 599 GTB Fiorano. The standard engine in the 458 Italia packs 578hp into the engine compartment, but Ferrari designers are apparently confident they can honor the guitar great's request to cram the additional 40 horses he will gain with the bigger engine into the car.  Clapton has been a good customer for Ferrari and is a friend and fan of Ferrari race car driver Felipe Massa.
