$4 million Lamborghinis recalled due to fire risk

The Aventador and the Veneno have just been recalled due to a risk of fire, which any Miura owner will tell you is classic Lambo. Certain actions, such as revving the auto while idling, can put fuel vapor close enough to the hot exhaust system to create a fire risk.

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 United States regarding "irregular idle / engine shut off at idle / MIL on". 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.

Lambo has also said that installing an unapproved aftermarket exhaust system is a real Ve-nono, because there's also a risk of fuel coming into contact with it when the tank is full.

The reason of recall being told by the auto maker is described as the potential of the engine to catch fire due to a problem in its fuel system.

Owners may contact Lamborghini customer service at 866-681-6276. All affected vehicles were produced between March 22, 2011 and December 5, 2016.

The company says it's unaware of any driver or passenger injuries tied to the flaw, though a spokeswoman was unable to say whether any fires have been reported in the affected vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration submitted a safety recall report for the iconic carmaker's Aventador and Veneno models on February 3. The company also said that this new system upgrade will include a new layout.

If you believe your auto is affected by this recall, be sure to contact your local authorized Lamborghini dealership as soon as possible.
