Most cars are bland. Some cars are interesting. Then there are some that make your pulse race. They make your hands a little sweaty. They make you want to do something really, really stupid. This car is one of those special machines. It’s the 2011 Aston Martin V12 Vantage Carbon Black Edition.
No mere mortal V12 Vantage, the Carbon Black Edition adds some goodies such as carbon fiber accents, redesigned grille, special wheels, special black paint, and some interior upgrades. Granted, it does cost an extra $15000, but when you’re looking at a base price of $179,995, what’s an extra fifteen grand?

Stunning good looks, shocking performance, and extreme exclusivity combine to make the V12 Vantage an amazing machine. The Carbon Black package makes it even more exclusive, and (somehow) even sexier. Yum.
