Is this anywhere close to what you were after? If so, you need to increase your light intensity, turn your light falloff OFF, and change your background to something darker, at minimum.

See if the changes I've made make sense to you:
1. Make life easier on yourself and center your objects (reflector and cover) in Modeler (F2 hotkey).
2. Your objects are supposed to be three-dimensional, just like a real reflector and lens cover. That means they need thickness. I used the Thickener plug-in to do so.
3. Once your objects are centered properly, it's much easier to parent them, along with the lamp, to the Null object in Layout.
4. Lastly, I played around a bit with the floodlight intensity and falloff. Normally, lights would have inverse-squared falloff, but Layout gave some strange renders with that setting.

Hope this helps a bit.
