AUDI Tavcor Motor Group has been caught in the middle of a legal tussle between former spouses. The matter, which was heard in the Port Elizabeth High Court on Wednesday, involves Platt Farming, which is owned by Dereck Platt, and Audi Tavcor.
It revolves around a dispute concerning the rightful ownership of an Audi Q5 bought in 2009. Platt was originally seeking the return of his car, but later sought a payout for the vehicle valued at about R400000.
Yesterday, an out-of-court settlement was reached by the parties involved.
They refused to disclose the details.
During the case, Platt testified that the car was not owned by his then wife, Beverley, who later traded in the car for another before the divorce was finalised earlier this year.
Platt alleged that his wife had "pulled the wool over his eyes" after she had cheated on him and later claimed ownership of the car.
