BMW has revealed its 560-hp, twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8-powered M6 Gran Coupe in a series of official photographs ahead of the sleek four-door’s public debut in January at the Detroit auto show.

Set to rival the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG, Porsche Panamera Turbo and upcoming Audi RS7, the latest M-car sets out to broaden the scope of the existing M6 lineup, providing added levels of practicality and improved comfort through the adoption of two extra doors and greater rear seat accommodation than its coupe and convertible siblings, alongside which it will be produced at BMW’s Dingolfing factory in Germany from early 2013.

The car arrives in North America in early summer of next year with a price tag around $110,000.

McLaren P1 Here

A car produced by a company with the most historic success this side of Ferrari in Grand Prix competition would aim for nothing less.

McLaren says this will be a range-topping version for its lineup, which includes coupe and spider versions of the MP4-12C. The company will use technology from that supercar—and advance it. Specs are not confirmed, but we expect the P1 will employ an upgraded version of the twin-turbo V8 fortified with KERS. Plus McLaren’s carbon-fiber monocoque will advance lightweight technology even further.

The 2012 Paris motor show, or as it is officially known – Mondail de l’Automobile – will take place Sept. 27 through Oct. 14, 2012. It occurs every two years alternating with the Frankfurt motor show in Germany. The Paris motor show is a spotlight for the latest in design, but automakers will also be showing off their latest concept cars, green cars and supercars.
