This is a tutorial I found on youtube, about how to light a car for a photo shoot, It shows you how to light a car very elegantly, showing the true beauty of a car (ideal for a commercial/promotion) Although it is intended for still photography, I'm sure much of the information can be transfered to film
hope the link works

The October 08 issue of American Cinematographer featured footage shot for the latest Need for Speed game. One trick the cinematographer used to figure out where to put lights was to use a laser pointer. He'd figure out where he wanted the highlight to appear on the car, then from the camera's position he shone the laser at that point, and then put a light where the laser bounced off.
Wow, simple and effective idea. Great tip, useful for shooting into mirrors as well.
