As usual, it depends on how you like to shoot.

I go to cars and coffee semi regular and my go to is always the 35 1.4, followed by 85 1.4, examples below. I have a 16-35 but not sure I've ever used it for that purpose.

Personally a photo of the whole (such as front, side profile, roof)  car isn't very exciting or creative, but again personal opinions

35 1.4 @ 1.4

85 1.4 - this guy wasn't posing for me - the 85 allowed me to be far enough away (and crouched between two other cars) that he was acting naturally.
