As noted, Ford is reportedly suing John Cena for selling his 2017 Ford GT, which violated a contract with the car company. Cena was picked from thousands of applicants to be able to purchase the vehicle, but also agreed to keep the car for at least two years, before being allowed to sell it. Initially, only 500 of these were made by Ford. In a statement, Ford claimed:
"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."
According to the suit, Cena did tell the company he sold the car - along with other assets - for "for cash to take care of expenses," per the lawsuit. Ford is looking for Cena to return profits from the sale, along with other damages. The WWE Superstar is currently promoting the animated movie, Ferdinand.
The Washington Post has since picked up the story and said Cena paid $460,000 for the vehicle. The article continued that after Cena was confronted about selling the car, he told Ford he would "make it right," but according to the lawsuit, he never did.
Earlier today, via Cena's Instagram - where he only posts photos, without giving an explanation - a 1980s Ford Mustang GT was posted.
