Ford sues John Cena for reselling his new $500000 GT supercar

I was making one of the boldest moves of my entire life: John Cena reveals the REAL reason why he was so nervous when he proposed to partner Nikki Bella on television

The problem is, Ford has a clause in its purchase contract that states an owner can't sell the GT for two years after buying it, so the Detroit company filed a lawsuit yesterday against Cena in the U.S. District Court in MI for breach of contract, fraudulent misrepresentation, and unjust enrichment.

The Dearborn automaker received about 6,500 online applications for the first 500 GTs to be produced as 2017 and 2018 model-year cars.

Cena reportedly signed a deal in which he agreed to hold onto the vehicle for at least two years.

On Nov. 3, Ford offered to buy back the Liquid Blue GT for the purchase price and said "they could discuss how to address the profit he received from the unauthorized resale". Marques like Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Ford heavily discourage buyers from flipping their cars, sometimes using contracts like the one Cena signed for the Ford GT.

When Ford was deciding which lucky individuals would get the right to purchase the redesigned Ford GT, they ran potential owners through the gauntlet. "Ford also has lost nearly two years of ambassadorship and brand value that Mr. Cena would have offered by owning the vehicle for the contractually required time", the complaint concludes.


The resale of his auto was apparently "unauthorized" and caused "loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale".

According to the suit, Cena told the company that he sold the vehicle, along with other property, to pay his bills. He promised to work with Ford to make what they called an "unlawful sale" right, but Ford claims he has not. While he said that it was so good he "needs a new change of trousers", it also looked like a pretty tight squeeze in there for the big guy. Ford is looking for Cena to return profits from the sale, along with other damages.

Ford Motor Company thinks John Cena couldn't see the terms of his contract.
