Mr.Karthik1100, your post surely prompted the question, but I have seen many people do that before. So I decided to pop the question and find the reason once for all.

Fortunately I can imagine, I took couple such shots last week inside a garage.

As you can see I generally solve that problem by either using a flash or by metering the camera on the darker side.

I am no expert here, but I feel that by introducing a light source between the object and the camera, that too a light source that is illuminating the camera rather than the object, would be counterintuitive. The camera light meter would read the light source and misread the light reflected by the main object. As a result the car would be even less exposed thanks to the bright lights ahead of it.

In your case you say you have achieved the exact opposite result. That may be because the walls around the car reflected the headlights back on the car. Generally speaking, the turning on headlights would make the camera underexpose the car severely.

Absolutely love the first pic!

However, the second and third could have been taken from a lower angle IMHO!

@kpzen: Thats not so risky as you think. Its a shot with a high speed look. Taken with a mounted camera at low speeds .. about 10kmph

@aZa: Actually its a very low ISO shot and with a ND3.0 filter. Thats just a look that worked for me i felt.
