It was here in Geneva back in 2011 that we first laid eyes on the Pagani Huayra. Now five years later, the exotic Italian automaker returns with the more hardcore Huayra BC. That it can stand out even among all the enticing new machinery here at the Palexpo already tells you this is something special.

Following the footsteps of the Zonda Cinque and Zonda R, the new Pagani Huayra BC is a more focused affair. Just look at that giant rear wing, the jutting front spoiler, the oversized wheels that look like they could keep a small helicopter aloft. The addenda may make the supercar look less elegant than the one on which it's based – production of which has already been sold out – but we have to hand it to Horacio Pagani and company for making it look even more purposeful.

Of course looks will only tell you part of the story. We're eagerly anticipating the opportunity to drive the thing, but before that comes around, we'll want to know more about its technical specifications. We know it'll pack a more potent version of the 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 that Pagani sources from Mercedes-AMG, but the Modenese automaker hasn't said exactly how much it will make – more than 750 horsepower, perhaps around 789 – but one way or another it'll be more than the 720 hp offered by the outgoing version.

That ought to help it keep up with the new Bugatti Chiron and the latest from Koenigsegg that are also making their debut here at the Geneva Motor Show. But regardless of bragging rights – and of how much it charges for the privilege – we have no doubt that Pagani will sell every one that it sets out to make. Check it out in our gallery above of fresh images from the show floor, and the promo video clip from the manufacturer below.
