Ultra-Rare, $4 Million Lamborghini Recalled

Lamborghini Recalling Almost 6000 Aventadors Due to Fire Risk Lamborghini Aventador recalled for engine fire risk

In addition to the Veneno, Lamborghini's voluntary recall applies to its Aventador Coupes, Roadsters and Aventador Js from model years 2012 to 2017.

Lamborghini is recalling the Aventador for engine-compartment fires, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. But owners of certain ultra-rare Lamborghinis are facing such a problem. Lamborghini said in 2013 that it would sell only three copies of the Veneno to customers for 3 million euros apiece, about $4 million at the time. Apparently, a full fuel tank might cause liquid fuel to enter the emission system's carbon canister, which catches fuel that would have evaporated into the atmosphere.

Legendary Italian automaker Lamborghini recently announced that it is recalling 5,900 luxury cars after reports of some of them catching fire.

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. All affected vehicles were produced between March 22, 2011 and December 5, 2016.

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 upgrade will include a new purge valve that's got higher performance as well as a new roll over valve. They also identified that there is a greater risk of contact between hot gasses and fuel vapor if the cars are misused, which include over-revving while at idle or using aftermarket exhaust.

Lamborghini has agreed to notify all owners of affected vehicles who will be instructed to take their auto in to an authorized dealer.
