Professional American wrestler, actor and WWE Superstar John Cena has been sued by Ford for selling his 2017 GT before his contract ended.
Ford had utterly insane amounts of interest in the third-generation hypercar, so much that it made prospective buyers send in applications as to why they would be the kind of brand ambassadors Ford wanted driving their halo vehicle.
The GT is, of course, highly desirable, but Ford doesn't want to see owners buy and flip the auto to make a profit of it when that money could've been theirs-hence the two-years-of-ownership clause.
According to the lawsuit, Ford reached out to Cena and confirmed with the wrestler he had in fact sold the vehicle to liquidate cash to pay for other expenses. Upon information and belief, Mr. Cena has unfairly made a large profit from the unauthorized resale flip of the vehicle, and Ford has suffered additional damages and losses, including, but not limited to, loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale. The ex-WWE wrestler is alleged to have later texted Ford, "I completely understand and as stated am willing to work with you and Ford to make it right". Hence the legal action. We've seen his video series where he proclaims to be a auto geek, and he sure seemed excited over the new GT. "My sincerest apologies", Cena told Ford. Could he have just been too tempted by an offer he couldn't refuse?
The lawsuit alleges breach of contract, fraudulent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.
