This is almost surely a 3D model, rendered using a 3D program such as 3D
studio, or open source renderers such as POV-ray. The reflection is
correct - if you look at the headlights, which are pointing slightly down
in the direct view, you'll note that they are larger in the reflection.
If you want an example of what can be done, have a look at:
Look for reflections in windows, water, drops, etc. Just amazing. And
check the perfection of the car 'model':
