A: If you create a mobile game that uses images or trademarks of car brands without permission, you may be infringing on the intellectual property rights of those brands. This can potentially result in legal action being taken against you.

To avoid potential legal issues, it is recommended that you either obtain permission from the car brands to use their trademarks and images in your game, or create original designs that do not use any trademarks or copyrighted material.

Additionally, if you plan to create a card collecting aspect of the game, you should be careful not to infringe on any copyrights or trademarks when designing the cards. It is recommended that you consult with a legal professional to ensure that your game does not infringe on any intellectual property rights.
