Just in time for the holiday season, Lamborghini has announced pricing for its 2012 lineup. But with prices starting at $187,900, we might suggest cruising the mall for some more affordable stocking stuffers.

The Gallardo LP550-2 Coupe - which you might know better as the special edition Valentino Balboni - stands as Lamborghini's most moderately priced offering for 2012, carrying a base price of $187,900. Of course that price is just part of the story, with destination tacking on another $2,995 and Uncle Sam reaching into your pocket for a $2,100 or $3,000 gas-guzzler tax, depending on if you opt for Lamborghini's e-gear or manual transmission. Although the e-gear transmission will save nearly a grand in taxes, it also adds $10,000 to the cost of the car.

A Bicolore version of the Gallardo LP550-2 Coupe is also available, carrying an MSRP of $191,900, which isn't a terrible deal considering it comes standard with the e-gear transmission.

The 2012 Gallardo LP 560-4 Coupe is set to carry a price of $202,000, but again doesn't include a $2,995 destination charge or gas-guzzler penalty. The Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder will list from $225,400.

The 2012 LP 570-4 is the next step up in the Gallardo lineup, with the higher-performance model commanding $237,600. The range topping Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante will cost you $248,000, with its six-speed's gas-guzzler tax rising to $3,700.

Finally, the 2012 Aventador LP 700-4 will carry a base price of $387,000, which balloons to $393,695 once all fees and taxes are included.

Happy shopping.
