About 1,700 Lamborghini Aventador coupes and roadsters should check in with the ranch soon, according to the automaker.
Lamborghini recalled the rare Italian supercar June 12 for an engine software issue that could stall the car at low speeds. All Aventador models sold in the U.S. will be recalled, from 2012 to today. The recall includes even special variations of the car such as the rarer Centenario and rarest Veneno editions.
According to Lamborghini, the recall was issued to remedy a problem with fuel flow through the purge valves in the roaring V-12 planted midships in the big bull. Like our smartphones, the fix is an update for the engine's software.
Fewer than 7,000 cars worldwide will need to be recalled, which means the phone tree at Sant'Agata Bolognese could be relatively quick. This is the second time Lamborghini has recalled the expensive two-seaters, a label displaying incorrect gross vehicle weight rating was the culprit last time. That issue was fixed with a new label.
While at the dealership, the handful of Centenario and Veneno owners can commiserate with the 16 Pagani Huayra owners that received a recall notice earlier this year. Perhaps they're even the same customers? (If that's the case, congratulations on your great life success.—Eds.)
