Pricing for the Aston Martin V12 Vantage has just been announced for the U.S. market and it’s a serious jump over the standard V8-powered model. With a V8 Vantage priced from roughly $120,000, the V12 model commands a serious premium at $179,995.

The new engine produces 510-hp and 420 ft-lbs of torque, enough to accelerate the Vantage to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 190-mph.

Those looking for an even more exclusive ride can opt for the “murdered out” Carbon Black edition V12 Vantage at $194,995. It gets black metallic paint, carbon fiber detailing, a new front grille and 10-spoke black wheels.
