Ford is suing American wrestler John Cena for selling his Ford GT sports-car too early. The avid car collector bought the GT in September for $ 463 376 but resold it shortly afterwards despite signing a purchase agreement to use it for at least two years .
Ford which built only 1000 units of the car model,hand-picked its buyers ,choosing Cena out of about 7000 applicants to buy the car.
However, by selling the 482kW supercar less than a month after taking delivery, the wrestler lost Ford almost “two years of ambassadorship and brand value”, claims the automaker.
Ford says the wrestler also made a large profit from the sale, although the price wasn’t specified. The car manufacturer wants John Cena to turn in all the profits he made from selling the car and additional money for damages.
Cena, one of WWE’s richest superstars, responded that the reason he sold the rare Ford was because he needed to “pay some bills”.
