Fire risk sparks Lamborghini Aventador recall

As part of the recall, approximately 1,453 models are potentially affected.

Something no Lamborghini owner ever does.

As a result of the hazard, Lamborghini is recalling about 5,900 Aventadors and all 12 Venenos worldwide, which will surely inconvenience the owners greatly. 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. In turn that could stop the unit's purge valves from working, allowing fuel vapour into the exhaust. Not even the $4 million Veneno coupe and roadster could escape the notice. This is worsened in case of winter fuel usage.

Speaking to The Daily Mail , Tara said she was "terribly frightened" when learning of the diagnosis, but that it had now cleared. It went on to say that there was 'no retreat to a "dark place" as some have disappointingly sought to suggest'.


The statement further added that in order to guarantee customer satisfaction, owners of the vehicles affected are being notified and requested to contact an authorized Lamborghini dealer in order to have the fuel evaporative system upgraded to the latest version.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, fuel vapors from a fully topped-off tank could collect around the Aventador's exhaust system, increasing the likelihood of a fire. With not properly treated fuel vapor, particular maneuvers, as example engine over revving at idle, could imply contact between fuel vapor and hot gasses.

In addition to the Veneno, the Anniversario, Miura Homage, Pirelli Edition, Super Veloce, and Roadster "whose technology derived from Aventador models" is included in the recall, with production dates ranging from March 2011 to December 2016.
