‘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,’ the complaint states.

Ford is wants Cena to hand over all the profits from the sale. 

They are also asking for damages.  

Cena told the company he sold off the car along with other property to pay his bills. 

In fairness, watching the hulking wrestler test the car on his YouTube channel Auto Geeks- he barely fits inside the thing.

The super car’s super features include a ecoboost V6 engine, and Cena says it is made entirely of carbon fiber, making it an extremely light vehicle.

It is held on the ground by an aerodynamic ‘buttress.’ 

The inside is also made from carbon fiber, which as Cena explains ‘makes it a race car… that you can put a license plate on… which is really fun.’

Astros pitcher Justin Verlander and NASCAR driver Joey Logano also own the whip.
