I see many sites selling 3D models of cars which are a very close match to the real deal and goes by the official licensed names as well. They claim that you get the right to use such a 3D model if you purchase it on the site. I''d like to purchase these models and put them in my racing game, but I don''t think this is legal (I''ve looked at different posts here). But how come they can sell the car models legally? I doubt the manufacturer gets any of that money? Thanks

They may well have licensed the rights from the manufacturer but I would suggest asking to see a copy of their licensing agreement before parting with any money.
