A RARE model of Ferrari owned by British singer and guitarist Eric Clapton is up for grabs and there is an exciting upgrade available.
Tan leather upholstery gives the interior a luxurious feel, lining the seats, roof and even an original Ferrari toolkit box.
Voertuig & Classic Head of Editorial Chris Pollitt said: “Even without taking into account this Modena’s original owner, the car is in exceptionally good condition and quite rare in its own right.
“Add the ‘Slowhand’ touch, and you really have the automotive equivalent of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to which Clapton was famously inducted not once, but three times.”
Die 2003 model’s listing read: “3.6l naturally aspirated V8 engine, rare manual gearbox, excellent condition and service history, low mileage.”
The fitting upgrade is an improved sound system with Becker CD changer, should you wish to blast one of the previous owner’s hits.
‘Rosso’ paintwork covers the first all-aluminium body and spaceframe built by the Italian sportscar manufacturer but the engine is a lot more unique.
It’s DOHC 40-valve 3.6 V8 engine is mated to a very rare and desirable manual gearbox.
