Outstanding.
Is the bank multi-tube indirect?
The reflections of the bank on the top of the care look smooth. Maybe just a bit sharp edged for my taste at the back of the highlights. Especially considering how nice and smooth they are across the top of the car, bonnet and fender sweep.
Back in the film days, that's where I would have spent a lot of time with dulling spray. :-) My hanging bank light held 24 500 Watt photofloods. They would hold color temp for about 4 hours of lighting.

Thanku... this was my first attempt at doing shots like this def need ti make a few tweaks.. Im expanding my light bank to 24ft from the current 16 to get better coverage.. it's powered by 4 alienbee 800 strobes

I expect that with 24 feet and the vehicle centered, the highlights would softly tapper at both the front, as in this image, and the back. How do you have the ABs mounted to get the coverage. 4 sources in something that large seems hard to balance unless its really deep.

The box is 40in deep with strobes pointed up... I used a light meter to check the surface and only had a variance of .2 stops at the edges compared to the center when 6in away from the diffusion material.. I forgot to take a pic with the lights mounted but in this pic u can see the 4 angled pieces of pipe with cords sticking out that the lights are mounted on... and yes main reason why I'm going bigger ti get better highlight spread.. come may I should be moving into a larger warehouse at which point I will more then likely build a 16x36 box
