John Cena has made his career as one of the most popular WWE wrestlers as well as an action film star and occasional rapper, but his latest breakout could be in the motor business. In the middle of making his name in wrestling or movies, he also moonlights as a host on an online show titled Auto Geek which highlights some of his more notable cars. In the latest video, John Cena highlights his Ford GT, an American muscle vehicle he has owned since 2006. The Ford GT is a historically significant vehicle. The GT40, most notably, is a consecutive four-time winner of the 24 Hours of LeMans.
Throughout the 4:39 video, John Cena displays his pristine and powerful Ford GT which includes many of the features commonly found in the 2006 model such as forged alloy wheels, red brake calipers, and the McIntosh Sound System. However, the vehicle in the video avoids the traditional racing stripes of the model to create a less distinct appearance as it drives, something Cena prefers in his model. Though the car only boasts 1,250 miles after more than ten years, the power of the Ford GT is undeniable with a 5.4-liter V8 able to roll out 550 hp. The result creates a car able to go from zero to sixty in approximately 3.3 seconds, something John Cena calls “powerful” and uniquely “American.”
John Cena has always shown off his love of American cars which includes a remarkable classic assortment with vehicles dating back to 1966. However, he’s also a fan of mixing his tastes with more than a few modern additions. Even in this latest video, Cena hints that he may be considering purchasing the 2017 Ford GT to buffer his collection. Perhaps we can hope to see the car and all its impressive features in the latest episode of Auto Geek.
