Ford GT 'Ambassador' sells his auto - Ford SUES

Ford Sues John Cena for selling Ford GT weeks after getting

One such lucky buyer of the Ford GT was American wrestler and sometime actor John Cena (not a particularly familiar name this side of the Pond), a man with a high profile in the USA and who Ford assumed would cast a big celebrity halo over the GT.

John Cena, WWE superstar and 'Murican hero, is being sued by Ford for selling his brand new GT on for a massive profit, against the specific instructions of his buyer's contract.

Well, it turns out our sixth-sense observation had all the precision of a Mustang leaving a crowded auto show. The American vehicle maker says that the WWE superstar promised in his application that he would own the supercar, for at least two years. "Those buyers are happy to sign to get those cars". WXYZ TV in Detroit has reported that the lawsuit initiated by Ford claims Cena sold the vehicle for a 'large profit from the unauthorised resale flip...' and that Ford 'suffered additional damages and losses...' Among those losses claimed in the suit are brand value, ambassador activity and customer goodwill.

The ex-WWE wrestler is alleged to have later texted Ford, "I completely understand and as stated, I'm willing to work with you and Ford to make it right".

Of course, the big question people probably have now is, why did he sell it?

It seems Cena took delivery of his auto in September, but sold it just a month later for an undisclosed - and we must assume fairly significant - profit.

At the end of the lawsuit, it's noted that Ford has requested the court to "order that Mr. Cena must disgorge his profits to Ford from the improper resale of his 2017 Ford GT". Could he have just been too tempted by an offer he couldn't refuse?

Why do you think John Cena sold his Ford GT?
