It stitches video from the wide view, front and rear facing cameras together. The top of the car is just a graphic, not an actual top view of the car.

There is no camera above the car. Software aggregates the view from both side cameras and the front and rear camera to give you the “around view”. Software also puts the picture of your car there and adjusts as the car moves. Turn your camera on and open your door, you’ll see the camera move. On most cars it’s on the underside of the mirrors.
