You can not do the same effect with one flash (especially an SB-600)!
http://forums.steves-digicams.com/tr...gle-talon.html

1. The SB-600 is too weak to cover the entire car
2. Your flash light will fall-off following the inverse square law especially for the lenght of the car (i.e. bright front / dark rear)
3. If you look at the shadow on the ground of the posted car photo you want to emulate, one light originated from the top down (with somewhat of a large light modifier), and also some fill light (or reflectors) from the left to keep that side of the car and the wheel spokes balanced!

IMO you'll also need some polarizer (or Photoshop) to get rid of the reflection from the painted surfaces...
