Ford lays the smack-down on John Cena for selling his auto

Ford Sues John Cena for selling Ford GT weeks after getting Ford Sues John Cena for selling Ford GT weeks after getting it

So when Ford was deciding who would be "Ambassadors" for the new Ford GT Supercar, those they chose not only had to be auto "influencers", but have a high profile and be contractually obliged to keep their vehicle for two years.

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.

Despite buyers often putting down millions of pounds to acquire the latest rare supercar, they're "encouraged" by the makers to keep the auto for a "sensible" period of time, and if they don't they probably won't get the chance to buy anything similar again.

Supercar manufacturers like Porsche, Ferrari, and Aston Martin have similarly begun cracking down on these profiteers, and often won't sell such buyers new cars again.

Billy Bush: Hearing 'Access Hollywood' tape is 'like a gut punch now'
Stop playing around with people's lives. "By the way", Bush said to Trump, "I would also like to say that's not me on the bus". Surely, we thought, none of this was real. "There wouldn't have been the moment to bring this bus back", Colbert said.

John Cena offered his apology to Ford, claiming that he "will cooperate to resolve the situation". But it's all gone a bit Pete Tong.

Ford called Cena a few days later when it heard about the sale, and said Cena copped to the flip.

According to the lawsuit, Ford reached out to Cena and confirmed with the wrestler he had in fact sold the auto to liquidate cash to pay for other expenses. It was Cena's auto - we know because apparently he's already sold it and now Ford is allegedly taking him to court. No one was quite 100 percent sure that was his vehicle because in the footage, which was filmed at a Ford dealership, he seemed to deliberately mention "a" Ford GT instead of calling it his.

Ford wants damages of over $75.000 because the brand's reputation has suffered as a result of the athlete's irresponsible actions. Despite an annual income from wrestling alone of around £6 million.
