New Lamborghini celebrates takeoff on an aircraft carrier

The new Lamborghini Veneno supercar landed stylishly in the public eye Sunday during its debut event on an Italian aircraft carrier docked in Abu Dhabi.

Priced $4.5 million, the supercar built to celebrate the Italian automaker’s 50th anniversary looks at home among jets with a sleek carbon-fiber body ending in a series of sharp wings on the rear of the design.

And at 750-horsepower, it definitely needs the room to run — the Veneno hits 62-mph in 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of 220 mph.

The Veneno has been rated street-legal, with only nine models slated for manufacture in 2014.
