New 4.5 Million Lamborghini Veneno Roadster supercar unveiled on Aircraft Carrier in Abu Dhabi

The first of nine examples of the new Lamborghini Veneno Roadster supercar was unveiled in Abu Dhabi’s Mina Zayed port on Dec. 2.

Powered by a 750-HP engine V-12, the new Italian extreme supercar can hit a top speed of 355 kmh and accelerate from 0 to 100 kmh in 2.9 seconds: a performance worth of a fighter jet!

For this reason, the public debut of the new 4.5 million USD Lamborghini took place on a quite unusual place: the deck of the Italian aicraft carrier Cavour that left Taranto on Nov. 12 on a scheduled cruise, whose main purpose is to promote the “made-in-Italy” technologies in the Gulf region and in Africa.

Some cool images of the Veneno Roadster next to the Italian Navy‘s AV-8B+ Harrier were released by Lamborghini.
