BMW unveiled a stunning next-generation sports car at the NAIAS. The 4-seat X Coupe convertible combines sports-car styling with off-road capabilities. But it is truly a high-performance sports car at heart, with a 3.0-liter, common-rail injection, 6-cylinder, turbodiesel engine boasting 184 horsepower.

One of the cool features of the car is the paddles on the steering wheel that allow the driver to shift gears, similar to the configuration on Formula One race cars. However, unlike a Formula One car, the X coupe has an automatic transmission.
