You’d think that with a motor show as big as Paris, there wouldn’t be anything worth a second look outside the venue it was held at. Well, apparently there was, and it was none other than the new BMW 1-Series M Coupe.

Shots of the car being partly revealed, taken in front of the Arc de Triomphe, were posted on the M-power.com website. Apart from being pictured in front of the most accident-prone roundabout in France, the shots revealed a camouflaged headlamp, side front portion of the bumper, air dam and a quad pipe exhaust.

The car is rumoured to produce 322 hp from a retuned version of the twin-turbo engine found in the 135i. It is also expected to have a limited run of 2,700 units, if some reports are to be believed. Until then, enjoy pictures of what some reporters probably missed in Paris. More images available after the jump.
