    or you can recreate this very easily in Illustrator, just choosing solid colors that easily are comparable to the actual colors of the photo and just use curves to draw shapes. Can probably "draw" / illustrate a car in like 10 min.

    or better yet, use flexisign pro and just bitmap trace that bastard constraining to "X" amount of colors.

    Two layers, one with a filter, one without. Erase where the car is to bring out that layer? Seems similar to selective coloring to me.

    There's cell shading and then there's also just doing a basic outline for a more 'cartoonish' drawing.
