It looks very good! :) There are a few things that need a little work IMO.
First I would make some filler objects you can see some spots are hollow in the animation. In the engine bay a simple box with a black shader would rectify that. A radiator in the front opening would help as well.
Model the rear shock, it would take minutes, and improve the model.
Last thing I think would help a bit, adjusting your materials. The silver parts have no shine, I know the black parts are mat finish, but the silver are painted. The headlights look dark, try excluding the internals from casting/receiving shadows.
A very good piece, I think a little more time would greatly improve it.

Thanks for the feadback. The Paint reflection didn't dawn on me because I've looked at it too long. I knew something was off but couldn't place it. The reflectivity wasn't on. So I am currently working on that. The shock is there but I guess too deep. Moving it. the engine was there as well but I guess I deleted a couple of poly's on accident.
