Cena’s 1966 Dodge Charger 426 HEMI is an intimidating limited edition muscle car with the same front sheet metal and chassis as the Coronet.

Since Central Office Production Orders Camaros are not exactly production cars, they were not constrained by the weight, power and displacement restrictions of the time. Cena’s 1969 COPO Chevrolet Camaro is a red muscle car with an L72 iron Mark IV 427 CU engine mated to an H22 4-speed transmission that squeezes out 425 horsepower.

Looking at the white exterior of the 1970 AMC Rebel The Machine, you might think it’s not exactly a high-performance muscle car. But you couldn’t be more wrong. The machine’s 390-cu.in. The V8 produces enough power to pull your hair off your body as it passes you on the road.

Cena’s visually arresting 1970 Plymouth Superbird could be mistaken for the 1969 Dodge Daytona due to their similar nose and spoiler. However, there is a world of difference between the two muscle cars. The 1970 Superbird draws its power from a 440 cu.in. “Super Commando” V8 engine with 390 hp.

John Cena’s 1970 Superbird is one of 1,920 units made and may be one of the last surviving units. The wrestler cum actor is undeniably a racing fan as many of the Plymouth Superbirds were collected by NASCAR Hall of Famers like Ray Evernham.

John Cena’s car collection isn’t complete without mentioning the pulsating 2006 Dodge Viper. We know Cena has a thing for high-performance cars, but with the Dodge Viper, it’s safe to say it’s also big on streamlined cars that glide effortlessly along.

This super-fast Viper takes just 3.1 seconds to reach 100 km/h and reaches a quarter-mile in 12.1 seconds. Cena’s Dodge Viper’s 20-valve pushrod V10 engine puts out 510 horsepower and costs about $86,000.

John Cena owns a limited edition 2006 Ford GT that is currently valued at around $400,000. Cena’s ’06 GT is one of 27 made and is rated at 330 cu.in. Six-speed manual transmission that delivers 550 horsepower. The entire process of Cena acquiring the exclusive Ford GT led Ford to file a lawsuit against Cena, who subsequently issued a counter-suit.

The interior of the 2006 Ford GT is almost better than Ferrari’s, even if there are a few design flaws like the zero storage space. But Cena probably doesn’t care about that. It probably just needs a powerful speedster and the 2006 Ford GT falls short in that regard.

4/10 2007 Dodge Charger SRT-8 Super Bee

The 2007 Charger SRT-8 Super Bee is another modern muscle car in Cena’s collection. The Detonator orange, black racing stripe, rear spoiler and headlights combine to create a monstrous look for the 2007 Dodge Charger Super Bee.
