Lamborghini Cars Subject To Recall Due To Fires

Lamborghini Cars Subject To Recall Due To Fires

If you're a Lamborghini Veneno owner, you're going to want to read this.

About 1,500 Aventadors, which start at around $400,000, also are affected by the recall in the USA, according to a recall notice posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website Tuesday.

Lamborghini is recalling 5,900 of its sports cars because of a fire risk, including its $4 million Veneno supercar.

The affected models include the Aventador which sells for around US$400,000 and the rare US$4 million Venono model.

Lamborghini said in 2013 that it would sell only three units of the Veneno for 3 million euros each, roughly ₹ 26.77 crore at the time.

Trump Will Announce Supreme Court Pick Next Week
The vacancy regularly came up during the presidential race and is said to be an early priority for the Trump administration. Gorsuch, 49, is a judge on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals where he was nominated by President George W.


The Aventadors included in this recall include models produced between March 22, 2011 and December 5, 2016. The report states that the problem is exacerbated by "over-revving the engine at idle", and compounded by use of aftermarket exhaust systems, making this a particularly ironic risk profile for Aventador owners.

Owners of the 2012-2017 Lamborghini Aventador in the United States will need to make a stop by their dealer soon for a potentially serious fix.

According to Bloomberg, Lamborghini is unaware of any injuries related to this issue, and will begin notifying customers of the recall in the coming weeks.

In a statement, Lamborghini said faults in the Aventador's evaporative emissions control system could cause fuel vapours to not be treated properly. The EVAP system will then be upgraded free of charge.

If you believe your auto is affected by this recall, be sure to contact your local authorized Lamborghini dealership as soon as possible.
