Ford GT 'Ambassador' sells his vehicle - Ford SUES

Back when deliveries of the new Ford GT started, professional wrestler John Cena was pictured with an example of the supercar.

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.

Well, it turns out our sixth-sense observation had all the precision of a Mustang leaving a crowded auto show. The auto manufacturer wants John Cena to turn in all the profits he made from selling the vehicle and additional money for damages.

Despite buyers often putting down millions of pounds to acquire the latest rare supercar, they're "encouraged" by the makers to keep the vehicle for a "sensible" period of time, and if they don't they probably won't get the chance to buy anything similar again. Now Ford is taking him to court, as buyers were contractually obligated to keep the auto for two years before selling it.

Cena responded to the allegations by stating, "I completely understand and as stated am willing to work with you and Ford to make it right". WXYZ, however, has a copy of the lawsuit, which suggests he's actually not being very cooperative. In the lawsuit, Ford makes several mentions of Cena reaping a large profit on the sale, but that number is never disclosed.

"My sincerest apologies", and explained the sale was "for cash to take care of expenses". Could he have just been too tempted by an offer he couldn't refuse?

In a lawsuit filed recently, Ford Motor Company alleges Cena broke the contract and flipped his few-weeks old GT - which carries an MSRP north of $450,000 - for a large profit.
