Ford sues John Cena for selling his Ford GT

Share

Cena, who also had a 2006 Ford GT, was chosen out of about 7000 applicants to buy the vehicle, of which only 1000 units will be built.

Cena paid just north of $466,000 for a liquid blue coupe with "Dark Energy" interior and then sold it for a profit less than a month later breaking a clause in the contract with Ford that required him to own the auto for at least two years.

However, by selling the 482kW supercar less than a month after taking delivery, the wrestler lost Ford nearly "two years of ambassadorship and brand value", claims the automaker.

He fell short of the 18 million bar set by the fast-food chain, but Wendy's gave Wilkerson the nuggets anyway for the effort. PBS' special live coverage of Trump's inauguration day was the most viewed live stream broadcast of the year.

However, Ford claims, soon after receiving the vehicle, Cena flipped it for a big profit.

Ford wants restitution for that profit, for "damages and losses, including, but not limited to, loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale", and for attorney and court costs.

Cena responded to the allegations by stating, "I completely understand and as stated am willing to work with you and Ford to make it right". WXYZ, however, has a copy of the lawsuit, which suggests he's actually not being very cooperative.

The Lamborghini Urus is everything we hoped it to be
The Urus is also available with carbon ceramic brakes, adaptive air suspension, and six different driving modes. The Urus packs a 4-litre V8 twin-turbo engine which delivers a massive 650 hp and 850 Nm of torque.

Of course, the big question people probably have now is, why did he sell it? The report says he sold the auto for cash to pay expenses, but wouldn't it make more sense to sell other expensive cars in his notable fleet - ones that he wasn't contractually obligated to keep?

According to the lawsuit, Cena told the company he sold the auto, along with other property, to pay bills. Could he have just been too tempted by an offer he couldn't refuse?

In a lawsuit filed recently, Ford Motor Company alleges Cena broke the contract and flipped his few-weeks old GT - which carries an MSRP north of $450,000 - for a large profit.
