The famous WWE star John Cena is being sued by Ford for selling one of their rarest cars, the 2017 Ford GT! The car manufacturer produced only 1,000 units of 2017 Ford GT which makes the car a collector’s item. To add on top of that, the vehicle’s base price is $500,000. Nonetheless, the reason why Ford is suing John Cena is because he managed to turn a huge profit from flipping the car.

Ford Official Statement
Seeing how this story is putting Ford in a bad light, the company felt the need to release an official statement which shed some light of why John Cena is being sued. “Mr. Cena has unfairly made a large profit from the unauthorized resale flip of the vehicle, and Ford has suffered additional damage and losses, including, but not limited to, loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale”.
What Does Ford Want?
Simply put, Ford wants to take all of John Cena’s money. The car manufacturer wants John Cena to turn in all the profits he made from flipping the car and the company also wants some additional money for damages.
