IMO it's too small (and weak) for a big shoot like car...

The softboxes will probably be too small (unless you shoot only portion of the car at a time)
I guess if you get more umbrellas and backup far enough it might work, but the lighting will be pretty flat for the entire vehicle

It looks like it only comes with 1 set: 1 transmitter (for camera) and 1 receiver (for 1 strobe), so:

1. You have to connect all your strobes together with 1 cable and then hook it up to the 1 receiver that is included

or

2. Buy two extra receivers so all three strobes will have wireless capability, according to the link: *Kit comes with 1 Trigger & 1 Receiver. If you do not have them already, you will need to purchase 2 additional Receivers to sync all flashes in this kit.*

Yes - You only need to buy two more receivers
-> The kit already comes with 1 receiver and a transmitter for your camera
