Maybe just a little. I'd rather see the background about 1 second earlier at the right behind it.

For me, personally, yes. But it's still a cool shot.

This proved to be more difficult than expected. I will post more angles later.

For shots like that you need a REALLY long boom, and a wide lens as well, then you need to correct the distortion in PS.

I have a 20 ft rig and a 16. I didn't feel like i needed to use the longer one. I agree with you on the distortion.
This was the first attempt. I haven't seen it done before, I'm sure it has been but i wanted to try it myself.
I'm happy with the results.

That's much better, less side. Rig-shots from the side simply don't have the impact, for several reasons, but one of them is the inherent distortion for sure. The shot you're trying to do has to be done very differently. Look to the major manufacturers for this type of shot, which they do as VR, or rolling. You really need to be nearly above the vehicle to make these side shots work (like in the link below).

Doing the normal down-low angle tends to work against you when you're shooting a lot of side.

More front = down low
More side = up high

An exception might be a Lamborghini, where the cabin is so small that if you shoot it low the cabin all but disappears. Lambo's always look better shot high, and from the rear, as the engine lid is really the money shot.
