Fire risk recall for $6.3m Lamborghinis

Lamborghini is recalling 5,900 Aventadors worldwide as well as three Veneno hardtops and nine Veneno Roadsters.

About 1,500 Aventadors, which start at around $400,000, also are affected by the recall in the US, according to a recall notice posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website Tuesday.

The recall affect all 2012 to 2017 models of the Lamborghini Aventador, including all limited editions. These include all two-door vehicles with Vin numbers beginning in ZHWEC1476CLA00091 and ending in ZHWET3ZD1HLA05975.

The Aventadors included in this recall include models produced between March 22, 2011 and December 5, 2016.

Owners of the 2012-2017 Lamborghini Aventador in the United States will need to make a stop by their dealer soon for a potentially serious fix. Further analysis revealed that there is a correlation between the said failures and carbon canister saturation. This fault can cause fuel vapors not to be properly treated, which, combined with "particular maneuvers", can cause the vapors to come into contact with hot gasses and lead to a fire. Lamborghini said that doing any of these "can generate big flame". Considering many Lamborghinis I've seen pack exhaust upgrades and love to sit and rev for no real reason, this could be a serious concern for owners. If purge valves are reached by fuel this could affect the functionality of the fuel EVAP system. This will help in preventing the fuel tank from becoming overfilled.

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