Milan looks pretty green. I didn't know it was possible to get rear louvers anymore. The lighting looks pretty decent on the 2nd shot, I prefer the side shots taken from a slightly higher perspective to cut down on the fender gap some.

Nice ride! You shot #2 on wide angle. If you back off & use your longest tele focal length at that same f-stop (aperture), you could throw the background more out of focus (OOF).
Some wheel blur would be nice in #1. 1/640 sec won't give you that. You'll have to get off Exposure Mode = auto exposure to do that, too.

Try manual in those conditions. For a good starting point, first set the f-stop & shutter speed you need for the effect you want. Then the other parameter: f-stop or shutter speed. Then adjust the ISO.
Need an exposure crutch?

^ Hey look at that. That blue one is actually the Cobra owners other car. He makes and markets those louvers, and was having me do some shots for him.

Fins on the back windsheild kill the exterior look of the car, but performance wise - I won't go there.

Well... technically I think it's actually a Mustang Cobra... or perhaps Ford SVT Mustang Cobra...

Don't want to confuse it with the AC Cobra... LOL! (or the kit cars... LOL)
