Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton is renowned for his classic car collection – after his music career of course – and not one but two of his cars have recently made the rounds on Auto Trader.
His Lamborghini Superleggera has already been snapped up for a rumoured £125,000, though his Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano F1 is still up for grabs on the site for £89,900 from car dealer, GVE London.

It’s well known how much Clapton loves his Ferraris. He’s rumoured to have had more than ten Ferraris over the years, with many of them used as inspiration for his songs, and some even gifted to him by friend and fellow musician, The Beatles’ George Harrison. He’s even made use of Ferrari’s secretive One-Off Programme in the past for a reported £3million, so you know he’s not messing around!
Since reaching superstardom, Eric Clapton, also known by his stage name ‘Slowhand”, has shown a fixation on supercars, with a particular penchant for Ferraris. It may be ironic that Slowhand loves cars that are so fast, but this hasn’t stopped the rocker from amassing a covetable collection. This particular Ferrari 599, on sale from GVE London, is stunning and well-maintained. The fact it received Eric Clapton’s seal of approval before being sold on makes it that much more special. For a blues lover, who also has the money for it, this is a perfect buy on Auto Trader.
What makes this Ferrari stand out?
For £89k, you’d be right to ask for some special features in your Ferrari.
Fortunately, this one comes with plenty of stand-out touches including yellow brake calipers, carbon ceramic brakes and a BOSE HiFi system installed. Clapton’s 599 F1 features a carbon fibre driving zone, contrasting Nero Daytona Black exterior on Castoror Light Brown interior, upholstery leather and an electrochromatic interior mirror. Further features include full electric seats, a leather headliner and leather rear shelf. Externally, you’ll draw plenty of attention with the 20-inch alloys, classic Scuderia Ferrari shields and the roar of that 6l V12 engine. The Ferrari 599 F1 can go 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 205mph. Check out the full Auto Trader ad here and find more Ferrari 599 F1 GTB for sale here. In the mood for a day dream?
