Vroom, vroom … boom?
Lamborghini, maker of super fast and super expensive cars, has recalled 5,900 of its sports cars due to a fire risk associated with them. The recall includes its super-specialized supercar, Veneno.
Lamborghini only made 12 Venenos total, which range in price from $4 million to $4.5 million. All of them are being recalled.
Apparently, the risk of fire comes from the vehicle’s exhaust, and there have been seven known fires so far. Owners should get their evaporative emission control (EVAP) updated at their nearest dealership, according to the brand, and it should take one to two days to fix.
“In certain driving conditions while the vehicle has a full gas tank, gasoline may contact the exhaust system… [this] can increase the risk of a fire,” reads a recall notice published by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The other cars in in the recall include Lamborghini’s Aventador Coupes, Roadsters and Aventador Js from model years 2012 to 2017. [CNBC]
