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.
