Question about racing games

How much money, if any, does a car manufacture typically get for allowing its vehicles do be used in a video game? With the seemingly endless number of racing games, I would think that the manufacturers could rake in quite a bit.

Or is it seen as "Free Advertising?"

I know a lot of car makers have a problem with their vehicles showing crash damage, which I think is insane. Interesting question...

Games like Ford Racing and Porsche Challenge are surely funded at least in part by their respective namesake companies?
