    Seemless paper?

    You want professional shots? 400watt strobes. Maybe 6 or so. Large white sheets of foam board to bounce with...light meter, radio triggers, assistants...etc...

    I'd give more advice but unfortunately I don't have much in regards to automotive studio.

    Good luck!

    Pay someone to do it. Seriously; the photographer probably doesn't sell cars on the side, and if you want professional-quality photographs, you're not going to get them just by buying a few thousand dollars worth of gear and trying it as a side-line.
