On The Lighter Side: Inside John Cena's Muscle Car Collection

On The Lighter Side: Inside John Cena's Muscle Car Collection

This collection highlights American manufacturing triumphs, and is full of one-off and ultra-rare cars.

Back when Motorious was a seedling, John Cena and the Ford GT drama was one of the first ongoing stories we covered in-depth. Since then, the more we learn about Cena's car obsession, the more we like him.

He's a hardcore American muscle car guy, with a few halo cars that have passed through his garage. Here are some highlights of the cars owned by John Cena over the years.

2006 Ford GT

While it's neither the Ford GT that started the fight with Ford, nor is it a muscle car, this pampered American supercar is an exceptional car. A supercharged 5.4-liter provides full-on V8 power that's not currently seen in the latest Ford GTs.

1970 Buick GSX

The Buick GSX is an underdog of the muscle car boom of the 1970s, but it's also one of the most aggressive. While it can look unassuming next to a GTO or Chevelle, the GSX boasted a massive 7.5-liter engine that put out a respectful 350 horsepower and an impressive 510 ft-lbs of torque.

1970 Plymouth Superbird

Any good gearhead with the resources should absolutely have a this winged Plymouth in their collection. The iconic 1970 Superbird is moved by a 425-horsepower 7.0-liter engine, with a high speed over more than 150 mph.

2013 Custom Corvette CR InCINErator

We're not saying it's all normal, as shown with this Gumball car. The InCENArator was built by Parker Brothers for the wrestler, and believe it or not, there's a C7 Corvette in there somewhere. Spec'ed with a flamethrower, this car is a shout-out to the year 3000.

1966 Dodge Hemi Charger 426

The first-generation Dodge Charger is not one we hear a lot of about because initial sales and production were low, but those factors actually make them the rarer Charger now. Cena's Charger is powered by a giant 7.0-liter 426 cubic-inch engine that cranks out 425-horsepower.

1969 COPO Chevrolet Camaro


Seemingly sold sometime recently, John Cena's (former) 1969 Camaro COPO is a total dream car. It's said that Cena frequently drove the COPO Camaro around, and kept it in perfect condition. The car was the very first of 9561 COPOs proeduced, and was famously delivered in a small cermany with Camaro 427 builder and racer Dickie Harrell.

2007 Ford Mustang Saleen Parnelli Jones Limited Edition

John Cena is the owner of one of only 500 of these made. These were based on the Boss Mustang, and built to commemorate Saleen Parnelli's victory that won him the SCCA Trans-Am title in 1970.
