The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage features a 510hp and 420 lb-ft of torque V12 that can propel the sexy beast from a standstill to 60mph in about 4.1 seconds and top out just over 190mph.

Aston Martin Confirms V12 Vantage Pricing for the Americas
Irvine, 3rd June 2010 — Aston Martin confirms pricing in the Americas for the eagerly awaited V12 Vantage, Aston Martin’s most exhilarating sports car. The V12 Vantage will start from $179,995, with the Carbon Black Special Edition priced at $194,995.
Based on the hugely successful V8 Vantage, the V12 Vantage features a 6.0 litre V12 engine producing 510 bhp, and 420 lb ft (570 Nm) of torque with a top speed of 190 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 4.1 seconds.
Offered with a six-speed manual transmission, the V12 Vantage is first and foremost a driver’s car, inviting and rewarding the driver’s full involvement. Aston Martin’s most powerful engine has been combined with its most agile model, complete with carbon ceramic brakes and revised suspension to create a truly potent and dynamic sports car.
The Carbon Black Special Edition adds a typically understated flair to V12 Vantage. On the exterior, the car features a bespoke Carbon Black metallic paint with a subtle metallic twist to create a deep, rich patina; painstakingly created through a hand- painting process taking 50 man-hours. The iconic Aston Martin side strake has been fashioned from carbon fibre backed by a black mesh and complimented with gloss black, 10-spoke diamond-turned alloy wheels. A bright finished grill and front parking sensors (normally an option) complete the exterior detailing.
Inside, owners are greeted by swathes of Obsidian Black leather highlighted with a contrast silver coarse stitch hand-stitched by Aston Martin craftspeople. Also featured are a Piano Black facia trim, center stack and center console, anodised black tread plates and unique sill plaques build on the carbon theme. The normally optional Aston Martin 700w Premium Audio System is delivered as standard.
The V12 Vantage is hand-built at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Gaydon, UK, joining the DBS, DB9 and V8 Vantage model lines which are also built in the state-of-the-art production facility combining hi-tech manufacturing processes with traditional hand-craftsmanship.
The V12 Vantage is available to order now from the Aston Martin dealer network across the Americas. Customer deliveries will commence in quarter four 2010.
