Eric Clapton's custom $4.7 million Ferrari- Cool or Ugly?

Do not like.

Eric Clapton is one of the most famous musicians around. He's also incredibly rich and likes Ferrari's. That makes it pretty cool in my book. However, Clapton had Ferrari make him a custom one-of-a-kind Ferrari based on a 458 Italia.

My problem is that the car is incredibly ugly. It looks like Clapton was a fan of Magnum PI because this looks like a modernized version of magnums Ferrari. It integrates also remind me more the little of a Tesla Roadster.
