Read more about Ford is Suing John Cena for Selling his GT at AutoGuide.comFord took a page out of Ferrari’s book with its GT supercar.
The automaker had customers send in applications to buy the limited-run supercar, and also made them sign a contract vowing not to flip the vehicle for a profit following their purchase. One of the lucky few who Ford deemed important enough to receive a GT was John Cena, and now the WWE star has landed himself in hot water after breaking said contract.
According to Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ, Cena is being sued by Ford after selling his $400,000+ GT. Cena was contractually obligated to keep the vehicle for at least two years after purchasing it, but he instead flipped it for a significant profit soon after taking delivery, Ford alleges.
“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.”
