Pagani Huayra just as ugly as anticipated

Just as we all were not hoping for; the leaked pics of the "Paganini HYAA" (Pagani Huayra) were all too accurate. The new Zonda Successor is almost painful to look at. I mean, come on; the damn thing looks like a fish. I guess it's not all bad though. I suppose if you just put your hand over the front of it, the rest of the car looks alright.

It's got all kinds of weird flaps and wings and crap, it's even gullwing doors. Sounds complicated.

Performance wise, this new car kick ass. It's sporting a twin-turbo'd 6.0 liter 12-cylinder AMG powerplant, set to chuck out a good 700  brake HP and 740 pound-feet of torque. All that will be sent to the ground through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Couple that with a weight of just under 3,000 pounds – aided by copious amounts of carbon fiber – and you have the makings of a 21st century rear-wheel drive rocket ship.
