This is the fifth time the supercar has hit the open market.
The boys in Dearborn have done their damnedest to make sure that customers buying a Ford GT don't speculate – which is, to say, buy it for a quick turn-around, selling it at a profit. But one example managed to slip through the cracks, and now it's up for sale for the fifth time.
On the docket for Mecum Auctions' upcoming sale in Indianapolis is what appears to be the 2017 Ford GT originally purchased by one John Cena. The pro wrestler turned actor first sold his Blue Oval supercar in September of 2017, drawing the ire of its manufacturer.
Cena, Mecum, and Ford settled the matter in and out of court. We weren't privy to all the legal details, but the long and short of it is that the vehicle's now on the open market. And given the small numbers produced so far, the overall desirability of the vehicle, and the tight reins Ford has kept on just about every other example out there, it's been in hot demand. So in the year and a half since Cena first sold it, the GT has traded hands three more times. The last time, it sold for $1.32 million.
That was a fair bit less than the $1.54 million for which it had sold previously. So the current owner evidently feels it's worth a fair bit more than he paid for it, so he's putting it back up for auction again. And we can't help but wonder how much it'll go for this time.
Decked out in Liquid Blue metallic, the car has just 635 miles on it. And like any other example of the same, it packs a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, sending 647 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
