Lamborghini recalls 1453 Aventador, Veneno models for fire risk

Lamborghini Veneno, an exceedingly rare supercar, is among the 5,900 Aventadors that the Italian supercar manufacturer will recall worldwide. Moreover, the company said "particular maneuvers" like over-revving at idle - especially with an aftermarket exhaust system - could heighten the risk, causing fuel vapors to contact hot gasses, potentially leading to fire.

The Lamborghini Aventador starts at around $400,000 and is powered by a monstrous 6.6-liter V-12 cranking out an impressive 740 horsepower and lays down a 0-62 miles per hour time of just 2.9 seconds. The notice suggests Aventadors filled with too much gas could exhaust the system "in certain driving conditions".

The automaker says fuel can reach the purge valves and cause the valves to malfunction, causing a warning light to illuminate.

Lamborghini said it is unaware of any driver or passenger injuries related to the flaw, though a spokeswoman was unable to say whether any fires have been reported in the affected vehicles. The luxury super vehicle that is sold at a price of $4 million is being officially recalled and the owners of these super cars were notified about the step too.


Lamborghini, which is owned by Volkswagen Group, recently announced record global sales for 2016.

The recall includes all 12 Lamborghini Veneno supercars three Veneno hardtops and nine Veneno Roadsters. All affected vehicles were produced between March 22, 2011 and December 5, 2016. The EVAP system will then be upgraded free of charge. Moreover, they will be instructed to take their cars to a Lamborghini dealership which will inspect the auto and make the necessary fix.
