    WWE star, John Cena to feel the weight of Fords legal team.

    As we all know, to own the latest Ford GT you had to be approved and selected.

    Not just anyone could buy one and there were conditions to the purchase, one such stipulation was not on selling the car for two years.

    I think this is brilliant. I full support Ford on this one.

    Shame we didnít have that in for our market.

    Maurice, gone.
    Norm, you look like the rock, gone....

    Cena sold his GT?

    https://jalopnik.com/john-cena-is-be...w-f-1820913011

    Automakers tend to cringe when their rare supercars are resold for a higher price after they’re sold. For one, that means they’re not the ones making the big bucks off of their own products. Marques like Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Ford heavily discourage buyers from flipping their cars, sometimes using contracts like the one Cena signed for the Ford GT. If the company finds out you made a profit flipping your new supercar, it often means you won’t be invited to purchase future rare offerings from that marque. Sad!

    Ford Motor Company is taking things a step further however—the company filed a lawsuit Thursday against Cena in the U.S. District Court in Michigan for breach of contract, fraudulent misrepresentation, and unjust enrichment. The suit alleges that Cena flipped the car for a significant profit too soon after his purchase in violation of the contract he signed with Ford to purchase the 2017 Ford GT:

    Mr. Cena has unfairly made a large profit from the unauthorized resale flip of the vehicle, and Ford has suffered additional damages and losses, including, but not limited to, loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale.
    Ford wants Cena to hand over any profits he made from the sale and is also asking for compensation for “other damages including, but not limited to, damages for loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill, which exceed $75,000.”

    Someone said the exact same thing.

    “Won’t do Ford any good to get JC into court, they won’t see him”!
