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

To create the text on the tires, I used a displacement map, and added some subtle dirt and scratches to the chrome and metal parts (Fig.48).

The headlights were done with a simple glass material with a displacement map. I UV mapped the glass so the displacement map would be on the inside and kept the outside surface smooth (Fig.49).

Rendering

With everything modeled and textured it was time to render. For the background I used a photograph. The trick here is to match your camera angle and lens to the one used in the background photo, and then have your ground plane match with the ground in the image. To help adjust the camera angle you can make 3ds Max show the background image in the viewport (Fig.50).

Here are my camera and light settings. These settings can have a huge impact on your render, so use them with caution. I set a high size multiplier and low intensity on the sun to get a softer shadow for my somewhat overcast setting. Pretty basic settings otherwise (Fig.51).

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!
