John Cena is embroiled in a lawsuit with Ford Motor Company over his decision to resell his 2017 Ford GT supercar soon after taking delivery. The WWE superstar was one of a lucky few to be handpicked by Ford to purchase the $450,000+ car, but by reselling it so soon, he allegedly breached a clause in the purchase agreement which stipulates that each original Ford GT buyer must own the car for a minimum of 24 months. Ford brought a lawsuit against Cena in November, 2017 claiming “breach of contract, fraudulent misrepresentation, and unjust enrichment.”
Now, John Cena is reportedly asking the judge in the case to throw out the lawsuit. The reason: according to Cena, the final contract with Ford that he signed never contained any clause forbidding the car’s resale within 24 months of taking ownership.
This is according to TMZ, which says that it obtained access to documents filed in a Michigan district court.
John Cena says he sold the 2017 Ford GT, along with some other assets, in order to take care of personal expenses. If he loses the lawsuit brought by Ford, he could be ordered to pay Ford every penny of profit he made from the car’s sale, plus an additional $75,000 fee.
