Stellar work there L.A, I'm not a huge fan of car models, but I do love them when placed properly in an environment, it just speaks volumes over a GI ridden scene. Excellent rendition and composition, only thing I would've love to see is weight on the tires, it seems most artists forget this small fact

hai akira...great job here...

i was wondering, you said you used lightwave and maya to model the car, but will it still mantain the same quad polygons as you save it to .obj file and will there be any polygon breaks there?
And another question is, what kind of reflection method u use in lightwave if you did not use hdri rendering and yet having the superb effect similar to hdri result..

Cracking model and well rendered, My only crit is the light and that lack of shadow under the car in the outside shot. If it was evening with those longish shadows, which are fairly sharp it stands to reason the sun would be visible... so the light should really be much, much warmer in color and perhaps those shadows a tad less blue.

Truly Amazing job!
Behind the rear wheel looks a little odd from the angle in the render, it looks as if the bottom of the rear section of the car is too small. Maybe that is the way is is, but from a 3/4 view it looks a little off.
