Nope, Computer Generated Image. The car needn't even exist...
The only thing actually photographed is the background the car is placed in.

I used to do this stuff when I was 15. You import the polygonal structure of the car from autoCAD, put the textures in and voila - 3D rendering. All you need is a background.

It's much cheaper and easier to render cars that way, because you can place the shadows easily. And most of the rendering programs can render glossy plascticy finishes very realistically.

People are a whole different story on the other hand.

That's it. I'm never shooting another wedding again. I'll just CG them all based on family snapshots.

True ;)
And they also need a 360 degrees capture from the point the 'car' is going to be. That is used to get the reflections in the right place...
