If $180k gets you the V12 Vantage, how much more will you have to pay for the Carbon Black trimline? Details inside.
U.S. pricing for the Aston Martin V12 Vantage will start at $179,995 when the low series production car is released in that market. The 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS) car will be limited to 1,000 units worldwide, with no indication of how many models are allocated for the States.
The car's base price includes both a $3,000 gas-guzzler tax, as well as a hefty $1,350 delivery cost. Municipal, county and state taxes, as well as paperwork fees, are not included.
The 6.0-liter V12 engine, taken from the DBS, kicks out up to 420 ft-lb (570 Nm) of torque taking the driver from 0 to 62 mph in under 4.2 seconds. The car tops out at 190 mph (305 km/h).
Those with an extra $15,000 burning a hole in their pockets may step up and buy the Carbon Black trim, a version sold exclusively Stateside. This gets the customer blacked-out 10-spoke wheels, metallic black paint, a new grille, and carbon fiber trim pieces.
