Have you thought about laying the cars in location in your modeling software, color to what you want..import them as a group (the car placement separate from the rest of the model). Once that is complete, import into Lumion...align the models, materialize in Lumion. Rename using the options mentioned by others above above, then on the next model, rearrange the cars in your modeling software, export, and then grab the new name you created and reload in Lumion. The materials will stay the same so they will be Lumion edited, but the locations will be where you need them to be (you might need to align again). Next model, do the rename above... repeat. This allows you to truly place the objects where you want them to be as they are more than just typical entourage... they are a focus. The good thing is that you would have 4 files for a multitude of cars, not 4 files for EACH car. I have not tried this technique, and would be curious if it would work.
