Software used:
3ds Max, V-Ray, ZBrush

I added some details to the interior, but since I wanted to do a mainly exterior shot I kept it simple, just adding enough to show what is visible from the outside and something to create reflections on the windows (Fig.31).

Fig.32 - 33 show the modeling all done.

Materials and Basic Setup

I started slow by adding some basic V-Ray materials to the car, and a simple sun lighting and camera setup. Everything was at their default values for now (Fig.34).

Fig.35 shows some simple materials I used to get started. For the car paint I used VrayCarPaintMtl and for this I set the flake size to 0.0 since I didn't want metallic car paint. For the windows I used a standard VrayMtl with Refraction and Reflection set to White, and a Falloff modifier in the reflection slot so that I had more reflections on the edges and less straight on, so you could see though the windows.

Fig.36 shows the first render. It was a pretty good start, but since I was aiming for HDRI lighting now was a good time to start thinking about that. It knew it would have a great impact on the look of my materials so I had to get this sorted early on.

Two further tips might come in handy...1) Remember to disable Affect Backdrop in Vray Color Mapping settings when you render with background image... 2) to get the ground plane to create correct reflections, assign your HDRI map to the diffuse of the base material in the WrayMtlWapper and tick off Matte for refl.

Great tip on using a displacement map on the interior of the headlamp. Never thought to do that before. Great work!
