The scene does use area lights, look:
   light_source {
    dir*1000, col*4/num_lights parallel point_at 0
    #if (area_ang > 0)
     area_light 
x*1000*tan(radians(area_ang)),y*1000*tan(radians(area_ang)),4,4 adaptive 1 
jitter circular orient
    #end
   }

That metallic paint was just a quick experiment that's turned out much 
better than I expected, I'm currently building a car model to show it off 
properly :-D
