By suggestion, I was inspired to do this neat little European hot-hatch. Lots of good images on the web to work from, including some really great blueprint views. Car and environment modeled and rendered in 3D Studio Max using the default scanline renderer. The paint took several attempts to capture the unique shade of metallic blue used on most of these street cars. The scene, with the exception of the distant street is all 3D. Various photo-mapped planes proved reflections for the "across the street" images in the windows and car-side.
I intend to do some studio renders, soon, and perhaps a Renault 5 rally car inspired paint scheme
