The concept in theory when I read about this car was great, but somehow the result is kind of lackluster. This is the same car (see link), but for some reason when seen in daylight like the above picts, it lost some edge to its look.

In an attempt to capture the looks of the 512bb, a 458 was butchered.

Possibly the ugliest supercar ever created. I feel sick just looking at the pictures. Riced out Civics have more appeal than this abomination and that's putting it lightly since this is a Ferrari.

I agree this is pretty bad. Can't say exactly what's wrong, because it's ALL wrong. I mean it's a Ferrari, so it's going to look fast and be sleek, but man, the grill, the body lines, everything is just off, by a lot.

Agreed. Looks like 1980's technology mixed with todays technology. Maybe that's what Eric went for.

I think it looks average at best.

Even the car it was based on was offered with body colored bumpers...



Clapton could have done a lot better... guess there is a difference between musical talent and artistic talent in a car design sense

Though also to be fair I guess Clapton didnt really design it, though I do imagine at some point he had to give the "go-ahead" to the design...

That looks horrendous. Something is just off ...out of proportion.

The two-tone body panels ...ala Pontiac Aztek? lol.
