Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng

Good day,

I trade in a car at a dealership straight up for another car after the dealership had 3 people testing the vehicle he signed and i signed a document stating both parties are happy 

While we were still there at the dealership the owner gave the keys to his son and he raced away with the car 

A day later the owner informed me he wants to reverse the deal cause the gearbox is now broken.

Can he insist to swap back after breaking the gearbox?
