Ferrari Magazine has released a teaser image of a new one-off model, which is going to be built for Cheerag Arya, a 32-year old businessman from Dubai.

It was only after he moved to Dubai, six years ago, that he actually bought his first Ferrari, a 575M Maranello – but that was quickly followed by a 430 Scuderia, along with an Enzo, a Daytona, a 599 GTO and, at last, the F40 that started it all.

Ferrari has created a special one-off car, the SP12 EC, as an homage to famed guitarist Eric Clapton‘s career and his long-lasting passion for Ferrari.
