Considering many Lamborghinis I've seen pack exhaust upgrades and love to sit and rev for no real reason, this could be a serious concern for owners.
About 1,500 Aventadors, which start at around $400,000, also are affected by the recall in the US, according to a recall notice posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website Tuesday.
The legendary Italian automaker is recalling thousands of supercars, including its ultra-rare Veneno model, because of a fire risk.
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. This can lead on to the vapors of vehicle to contact hot gasses that can eventually cause fire in the auto.
According to the filed Safety Recall Report, the issue first came to Lamborghini's attention back in 2015 when it received a few claims in the USA regarding "irregular idle / engine shut off at idle / MIL on".
Every 2012-2017 Aventador in the United States except the new S and late-production SV models built after December 5, 2016, has a defective evaporative-emission system that can let gasoline soak through its charcoal filter and into the purge valves. The NHTSA notes a possible fault in the fuel system that could lead to a possible fire.
Vehicle owners were notified of the recall Tuesday, Lamborghini told CNN-and is aware of seven cases of fires. This recall includes Aventador-based special edition models, like the Superveloce, as well as the one-off Veneno, of which only 12 exist.
If you believe your auto is affected by this recall, be sure to contact your local authorized Lamborghini dealership as soon as possible.
