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.

While this isn't normally an issue for regular Joes like you and I, Cena had signed a contract when he applied to buy one of the very rare, unbelievably exclusive new Ford GT, which stated he couldn't sell it for two years. Apparently when a vehicle company builds a very limited-run machine and hand-picks people from a long list of applicants to get one, it's generally good taste to keep it for a while. Cena reportedly sold his after a matter of weeks, breaking the terms of the contract.

Ford's lawsuit alleges Cena never made it right, after snagging "a handsome profit". Let us know in the comments.

In this case, it seems Cena was also contractually obligated to keep the Ford GT for two years before selling.

Cena claims he wanted to sort this out with Ford, and that he sold the auto to fund expenses.

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.

Ford wants restitution for that profit, for "damages and losses, including, but not limited to, loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale", and for attorney and court costs.

Cena took delivery of his auto September 23, 2017, signing a contract that explicitly said he understood "being selected for the opportunity to purchase this vehicle is non-transferable and [that he agrees] not to sell the vehicle within the first 24 months of delivery". The Blue Oval brand is seeking more than $75,000 in damages.
