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.

The first-generation Barracuda was mostly famous for its distinctive wraparound rear glass, but also for being Plymouth’s first sporty, compact vehicle or "pony car." No match for the popular Ford Mustang, the Barracuda was redesigned for 1967, when notchback and convertible versions joined the already familiar fastback. Although still Valiant-based, the second-gen Barracuda received ne ...
