Lamborghini is recalling 5900 supercars after fires

Owners may contact Lamborghini customer service at 866-681-6276. Among those subjected to the recall is the incredibly rare Veneno supercar model that now has an estimated worth of $4 million (approximately P200 million).

About 5,900 Lamborghini sports cars, including the $4 million Veneno Roadster, have been recalled because of a fire risk, the company announced. Yes, even the Veneno, which sells between $4 million and $4.5 million.

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 issue affects all Aventadors-and model variants like the Veneno-built from May 22 2011 to December 5th 2016.

In case of fuel tank heavily overfilled and in particular handling conditions, liquid fuel could reach the carbon canister. As reported by Bloomberg, Lamborghini is recalling every Veneno ever sold-all 12 of them-over a fuel system fault that could result in fire.

Smart drops engines; to be EV-only brand in the US
The news was first reported by Reuters , and SlashGear has reviewed the letter Smart distributed to North American dealerships. Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz USA hope to revive Smart cars by making it an electric-vehicle only brand.

Vehicle owners were notified of the recall Tuesday, Lamborghini told CNN-and is aware of seven cases of fires.

The EVAP system upgrade will include a new purge valve that's got higher performance as well as a new roll over valve.

EVAP system components faults could cause fuel vapors not treater properly. This can lead on to the vapors of vehicle to contact hot gasses that can eventually cause fire in the auto. Meanwhile, affected Lamborghini supercar owners will be notified about this from February 24 to March 24.

Along with that nearly 1500 Aventadors are being recalled in the USA region too.
