The LA motor show takes place next week, and Autocar will be there to bring you all the latest news, pictures and gossip from this important US event.
The show opens its doors to media on 19 November and runs through until end of the month at the Los Angeles Convention Centre.
As one of several US motor shows, Los Angeles has risen in prominence in recent years thanks to a series of high-profile car launches, with highlights from last year's event including the reveal of the Porsche Macan, Jaguar F-type coupé and Mk3 Mini.
Here's what to expect at the LA motor show 2014.
Acura ILX compact saloon - Acura will be showing off an updated version of its ILX saloon, which will come with a "potent new powertrain, more forceful, sporty exterior styling and substantially upgraded interior styling." The sister car to the TLX, which was unveiled in production form in New York earlier this year, the latest ILX is promised to bring "a sharper performance focus" to the brand.
Audi A9 – A few darkened preview images are all we've seen of Audi's range-topping concept car thus far, but it's expected the firm will use the LA show to reveal its future design direction in the form of the high-tech A9. Scheduled to launch in 2017, the A9 looks set to take on a swooping, four-door shape. Audi also has two other vehicle debuts planned for LA.
Audi R8 Competition - This race-inspired version of the R8 comes with the claim of being the "fastest R8 ever offered". Audi says it can reach 60mph in 3.2sec and can accelerate on to a top speed of 199mph. Taking inspiration from Audi's R8 LMS race car, the R8 Competition features new aerodynamic bodywork upgrade and a large, fixed rear spoiler.
BMW X5 M and X6 M - The second-generation versions of BMW's X5 M and X6 M will arrive in the UK in April next year, priced from £90,179 and £93,070 respectively. The pair both receive the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine, which provides both cars with 564bhp and 553lb ft. An eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the six-speed unit of the first generation models, while both cars also get new, more aggressive bodywork.
Cadillac ATS-V coupé - Aiming to take on the likes of BMW's M4, the Cadillac ATS-V coupé has already been spotted completely undisguised in spy pictures. Power is expected to come from a 3.6-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine, while the model also sports more aggressive front and rear bumpers.
Chrysler 300C – Chrysler has announced plans to launch "thoroughly refreshed" versions of its 300 and 300C models in LA, with both models arriving in US showrooms in the first quarter of next year. Details on the updated models are limited, but spy photos have shown mild styling tweaks to the car's bumpers, grille and interior.
Fisker Rocket - Former Aston Martin design chief Henrik Fisker - who founded the Fisker Automotive brand - has promised to unveil "the ultimate American muscle car" in LA, and has teamed up with US-based Galpin Auto Sports. The new model, christened Rocket, features exaggerated styling that mixes muscle car and sports coupé lines.
Ford Explorer and Mustang - So far, the Blue Oval has only confirmed it will be showing two new models in LA; one will be a new version of the Explorer SUV and the other is a hot version of the recently launched Mustang. Back in February we spotted a hot-looking Mustang in testing. That model, dubbed the GT350, could come with more than 420bhp and be powered by the range-topping 5.0-litre V8 from the standard car.
Jaguar F-type AWD – Already spotted testing in spy pictures, Jaguar confirmed the existence of an AWD F-type when it confirmed its partnership with the Bloodhound SSC land speed record team. The car, which is capable of sprinting to 60mph in 3.9sec in top-end R coupé form, took part in a high-speed communications test with the Bloodhound team in South Africa.
