Ford sues John Cena for selling $500K custom 2017 Ford GT 'super car'

Ford Motor Company filed a lawsuit against John Cena in U.S. District Court in Michigan for violating his contract and "flipping" his custom-made model year 2017 Ford GT sports car.

The lawsuit says Cena was obligated to maintain ownership of the car for two years, but instead flipped it for a big profit soon after receiving the car.

"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."

The lawsuit alleges that after Cena was informed of violating the contract, he responded, "I completely understand and as stated am willing to work with Ford to make it right. My sincerest apologies."

It also says he sold the vehicle to liquidate for cash to take care of expenses.
