Not specifically. Most of the work was done in PS. Here's a list that you can search for tutorials for:

Cloning - I cloned out the palm trees and the sign on the left, distracting imperfections of the road, as well as some reflections on the car using the heal brush, spot healing brush, patch tool, and plain old copy and paste. There are lost of tutorials on painting out unwanted elements.
Masking - I used a mask to isolate the car and the road so I can adjust it separately.
Adjustment layers - I used many many adjustment layers like brightness/contrast, curves, saturation, levels, etc on dozens of parts of the photo. For example I used brightness adjustment layers to brighten just the wheels, or a cooling photo filter to reduce the yellow light on the car, an exposure adjustment layer for the road to make it darker etc. look up adjustment layer tutorials. Adjustment layers separate the men from the boys in PS. It's where the meat of the work is done at least for me.

Hope this helps!
