Well your friend darkened the car with a curve adjustment layer. And increased saturation of the sky and masking the rest.

Wait, are you using photoshop as well?

A layer of smart sharpen with luminosity blend mode, then a layer of high pass with overlay blend mode. And then increased saturation. Lastly apply a vignette on the top.
