John Cena Sued By Ford For Selling $500k Supercar

John Cena Sued By Ford For Selling $500k Supercar

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. A few weeks later, Ford learned he had sold it. The suit claims Cena flipped the auto for a profit shortly after he got it and well before the required two years that he was obligated to keep it.

When Ford was deciding which lucky individuals would get the right to purchase the redesigned Ford GT, they ran potential owners through the gauntlet. Among the big names in line were Jay Leno and Justin Verlander.

The man who made the catchphrase "You can't see me!" famous will soon see Ford and its lawyers in court after selling a custom-made GT supercar. For one, that means they're not the ones making the big bucks off of their own products.

As of this writing, Cena has not yet publicly responded to the lawsuit.

Ford wants Cena to hand over any profits he made from the sale and is also asking for compensation for "other damages including, but not limited to, damages for loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill, which exceed $75,000".

The company seeks unspecified damages and recovery of what it calls a "large profit from the resale". It's the same engine that debuted in Ford's Taurus SHO and is under the hood of the 2015 F-150 pickup. The supercar includes a number of light-weighting tricks, including a carbon-fiber tub and a gorilla-glass windshield that is 12 pounds lighter than a traditional windshield.
