There’s little point arguing that Pagani’s new Huayra supercar is as beautiful as its predecessor, the Zonda, but the car’s proportions are more appealing in person. Officially revealed today at the Geneva Auto Show, it’s still hard to overlook the Huayra’s catfish mouth.

Powered by a 6.0-liter V12 from AMG, the twin-turbo engine makes 700-hp and uses a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The entire chassis is made of carbon-titanium and coated in bodywork made mostly of carbon fiber. Weighing just under 3,000 lbs (2,976 lbs to be exact), the Huayra can hit a top speed of 230-mph.
