Ford sued the American vlogger and wrestler John Cena after he sold his Ford GT supercar, a limited-edition model just weeks after he received it.
John Cena was chosen by the US automaker from thousands of applicants who wanted to buy the assembled car produced in just 1.000 copies, according to unilad.co.uk.
However, it seems that the wrestler violated the purchase contract that stipulated that he was not entitled to sell the supercar for at least two years after buying it.
Ford wants damages of over $75.000 because the brand’s reputation has suffered as a result of the athlete’s irresponsible actions.
The manufacturer also asks for expenses to be settled in the trial and the return of illegal profits from the sale, namely $500.000.
John Cena offered his apology to Ford, claiming that he “will cooperate to resolve the situation.”
