This is the famous - to us LMCites - Eric Clapton (Scott) car.

Looks like it has gained rear wheel spats, something it has never had before.
For more history on this car see:- http://www.lancia.myzen.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2967.15

There was an almost identical, but unrestored Astura 'Bocca' at the Chantilly concours at the beginning of September 2016.

And the Bocca car has rear wheel spats.

Agreed, the 'Chantilly' car does have rear wheel spats, but I haven't seen the Clapton/Scott car with them on before.
Not all 'Boccas' had them originally, as per this period photo.

What a stunning car! When you consider what was available in Britain at the time.

It was just an observation. I rather prefer it without the spats and with just one wiper per side. The Clapton car looks rather cluttered with two on the drivers side.

Yes - those wheel discs are too beautiful to cover up.
