Nice. How did you achieve the strip lights?

Self illuminated mat?
Mat with Brazil Utility using high "generate GI" value?
Self illuminated mat & omni's?

Enquiring minds want to know.

Very nice.

You know what?, I think only the car is 3D, the background is a photo for sure, if the background would be 3D..., well, how could youīve done such great lights on the ceiling and those so poor reflected lights on carīs paint?, they are square!, Iīm afraid but I think that only the car is 3D, and perspective donīt match..., it seems awful to me.
Try to recreate the environment in 3D only for reflection purposes and it will be much better.

can you post a side-render? too bad we don't see too much of the car right now :)

[edit] you should try an HDRI render to improve those reflections, it will make the car way more realistic

To joie !!
I'd told anybody that the background was in 3d !!! of course it isn't lol !!!!!!!!!

this is my first try to mix 3d and 2d i know that the lights reflections are bad but it was wore with an hdri map so at that time i haven't change anything ! but maybe tomorow i will try to make better relfection !!!

and I will post a side render but you can see the same car in another 3d environment here :
