Let's be honest. After months, if not years of anticipation, we were all a little disappointed at the results when Pagani finally unveiled its new Huayra. But you know what? After seeing it up close and personal here on the floor of the Geneva Motor Show – in red no less, which is invariably more suitable to an Italian exotic than beige champagne metallic – we're convinced afresh that Horacio Pagani and company make some of the most desirable machinery known to man.

That gaping maw, for example, that everyone felt detracted from an otherwise sleek shape? Hardly noticable in person, less evident in the more vibrant hue, and besides, out on the road you'll likely see more of the sculpted tail disappearing rapidly over the horizon than you will of the nose anyway. But don't take our word for it. Have a look through our ace photographer's lens in the high-resolution image gallery below.
