I know this was asked a million times.I know I can't use real car names or badges,but what about body design? I saw a lot of games with real body designs.My other question is about the engine names:VR6,TFSI,1/2JZ etc.can I use them? And if I can use body designs,does that apply to rims too? My last question is that is it legal to use words like WRC,WTCC,NASCAR,F1,LMP,GT3 etc.?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I agree, it's a duplicate question. But besides that, if it's something that could be considered a brand name or trademark (or definitely is), stay away, unless you have explicit permission. You don't need a lawyer for that. \$\endgroup\$ – Mario Aug 30 '16 at 18:43
