  • Lamborghini Aventador recalled for engine fire risk

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

According to Bloomberg, Lamborghini is unaware of any injuries related to this issue, and will begin notifying customers of the recall in the coming weeks.

Domestic operations sink Tata Motors
The JLR unit is vulnerable because it doesn't have factories in the USA and sells much of its United Kingdom output overseas . The unit's operating profit margin narrowed to 9.3 percent from 14.4 percent a year earlier, according to the statement.

The recall includes all 12 Lamborghini Veneno supercars three Veneno hardtops and nine Veneno Roadsters.

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 U.S. regarding "irregular idle / engine shut off at idle / MIL on". But owners of certain ultra-rare Lamborghinis are facing such a problem. Combined with "particular maneuvers" such as "engine over-revving at idle", fuel vapors could contact hot gasses and lead to a fire risk, "especially with a not approved aftermarket exhaust system". All affected vehicles were produced between March 22, 2011 and December 5, 2016.

Dealers will upgrade the fuel tank's evaporative emissions system by adding a better performing purge valve and a new roll over valve for preventing owners fro overfilling the tank. Automobile Magazine reported in March 2016 that one was listed for sale for $11.1 million. If purge valves are reached by fuel this could affect the functionality of the fuel EVAP system. Meanwhile, affected Lamborghini supercar owners will be notified about this from February 24 to March 24.
