Personally, your scene is spot on. But, the trails aren't achieving illusion. Could be lasers.

Cheers for your comment, I am not sure about the laser, I used 6 animated light and a very slow shutter speed, it could have been done in Photoshop, but I like the idea of doing as much as I can straight in max.
So quick task just a free morning in the office.
cheery bye!

Dk exactly, but I think it must be a hard strobe flash to capture the car still..? Or camera moving parallel.. :)
Overall pretty stuff!

[..] it must be a hard strobe flash to capture the car still..?
In that case wheels would be without MB too...

Or camera moving parallel.. :)
and that would render nearby road very blurry.

Try as you might, you can't explain it. Sometimes fake is just fake  :]

there's a technique which incorporates/combines both, long exposure and flash/strobe, which gives clear visible form to objects not emitting light and still allows lights/emitters to create visible trails (in a way creates similar results as multi-exposure)
eg. image results for 'long exposure strobe'

tho in your study case more than that is breaking the illusion
one is headlight trail, how can trail be visible if the source of the light isn't ;)
usually what you'd see is tail lamp trail of a car driving in front, no headlights
now it looks as if the imaginary/ghost car was driving in opposite direction of your car
second is rotation blur on the wheels without direction blur (as mentioned before), third - distracting overlay, fourth - bloom-glare-blur inconsistency... and so on

simple advice, start with understanding photography if you wish to mimic the real-world technique

anyway, stay great & keep it up

Thanks for your comment guys, I understand photography more than what the test show.
Often even in advertising you see incoherent element that coexist. 
Why, because is an artistic licence, that's it.
I have chosen to keep the bg sharp on purpose ad I have chosen to see to wheel blurred.
Is more about the mood of the light and colours also is a 4 hour exercise.
I' m not sure what is the "distracting overlay" and yes I don't like the far blurriness in the distance,that is very annoying.
The other light lamp trail are on the Bg photo I used and are created by car going in the same direction.
