John Cena is a WWE professional wrestler and sometimes film star, but he's also a big vehicle aficionado, with a collection of both vintage and modern muscle cars and supercars that would be the envy of any garage; he's even got a blog on YouTube called John Cena: Auto Geek. Cena seemed to respond to the lawsuit by posting a photo on his Instagram account, which you can see below.

Ford filed a lawsuit against the WWE superstar in U.S. District Court in MI for violating his contract and "flipping" his custom-made 2017 Ford GT, WXYZ reports.

The man who made the catchphrase "You can't see me!" famous will soon see Ford and its lawyers in court after selling a custom-made GT supercar.

The Washington Post has since picked up the story and said Cena paid $460,000 for the vehicle. In the lawsuit, Ford claims Cena violated a contract by selling the vehicle.

The lawsuit claims that Cena was "selected from thousands of applicants for the opportunity to purchase the Ford GT". Ford is looking for Cena to return profits from the sale, along with other damages.

"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".

The Dearborn automaker received about 6,500 online applications for the first 500 GTs to be produced as 2017 and 2018 model-year cars.

Cena took delivery of the auto on September 23, 2017, yet Ford learned that he sold it on October 20, 2017-less than a month after he got it. Cena confirmed to Ford that he had sold it in a phone conversation with a company representative shortly afterwards.
