A few pics of a photoshoot I did for my friends car. Both of these are HDR.

not bad. The first has some halos around the front bumper. Two is the best aside from the pole growing from the roof. But I kinda like it anyway.

Good HDR, but I'd get rid of the pole in #2

I like what you're trying to do, & kind of like the idea.

I like the first one the most. to me the 2nd one is just ok

However as noted by others the halo around the front of the car is annoying and you have been given tips on how to fix that.

I would also think that it would look at lot better if you used a flash to highlight the car rather than use HDR or a method there off.

a flash to highlight the car

I've never cared much for that, especially with a black car. Maybe with a silver one that tends to spread out the highlights.
My first instinct is to find the right light & then use it to the cars best advantage.

I REALLY like the 1st shot with the clouds, but it would be more interesting if the whole car was in the shot. Looks like a bad crop.
