The design on this is interesting, to say the least. I don't know if that's intentional, but you have managed to merge 2 design styles from 2 different eras in automotive history. There are some elements of older and simpler designs, like those basic wheels with fat high profile (relatively speaking) tires, mostly flat rear panel and the general shape of the car. Kinda reminds me of the F50, Saleen S7 (the long back end), XJ220 and so on. But then are the detils of the modern age, like the light-beams in the headlights and the fancy mirrors and all the sharp-ish vents. I adore this design and would like to see more from you. 
Although if I have some constructive critisicm for you, I would like to say that the roofline of this car is not as refined as it should be. It's best seen in the front picture. The A-pillars are very thin and completely straight. Also the top of the rear window is weird. The corners of it are curved in the wrong direction. I know this is the trickiest part to do right in car design, because I have been struggling with making nice rooflines for a very long time. You will learn to make it better with experience. Keep it up ;)

Thank you for the feedback and i'm glad you like it.
The intention of the design was to make a muscle car that would work as an Electric Vehicle. Most EVs were in 2008, when I started developing the idea, designed as though they were toys, not real cars. Since then a lot has changed. 
EVs can have an enormous ammount of torque which is what makes a true muscle car. That's why it has elements from the old American muscle combined with modern elements. Some said that it looks like it combines Japanese and American design cues. 
I agree with your criticism. I'll have to address those some day. 

I'll probably upload some new stuff in a month or two. :D

:D. Well the background is a spehirical HDRI image and depending on the renderer you are using you can place your 3d object inside. The HDR image is also what the give the realistic lighting. :)
