Feb 17 2017
This also includes all limited editions, such as the "Anniversario, Miura Homage, Pirelli Edition; Super Veloce and the projects in-ternally denominated "One-shot", according to the Safety Recall Report".
Pricing for some of the recalled Aventadors starts at around $400,000, while the rare Veneno cost an upwards of $4 million, CNN reports.
A number of Lamborghini supercars are now facing recall due to a possible risk of fire.
If you're a Lamborghini Veneno owner, you're going to want to read this. Lamborghini made just three coupe versions, selling them for $4 million a pop.
A U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statement about the recall said: "In certain driving conditions while the vehicle has a full gas tank, gasoline may contact the exhaust system".
The Aventadors included in this recall include models produced between March 22, 2011 and December 5, 2016.
The EVAP system upgrade will include a new purge valve that's got higher performance as well as a new roll over valve.
The carmaker just revealed that there is a fault in the fuel system of the vehicle and that can actually lead on to fire if not managed properly. Combined with "particular maneuvers" such as "engine over-revving at idle", fuel vapors could contact hot gasses and lead to a fire risk, "especially with a not approved aftermarket exhaust system". The 12-cylinder, 750-horsepower supercars are among approximately 5,900 Aventadors - 1,500 in the USA - that also are being recalled for the same issues. Moreover, they will be instructed to take their cars to a Lamborghini dealership which will inspect the auto and make the necessary fix.
