Lamborghini has yesterday announced that it will be recalling the company’s flagship model, the Aventador LP700-4 due to an issue with the headlights that can be aimed horizontally but not vertically. As per National Highway Traffic Safety Administration these headlamps do not conform to federal safety standards and hence need to be rectified.
“An incorrect headlamp aim could reduce the drivers visibility and possibly blind oncoming traffic,” NHTSA said in a statement. “Either condition may increase the risk of crash.”
The company is said to recall 144 Aventador’s manufactured between July 15, 2011 and April 20, 2012. It’s currently unclear how Lamborghini discovered the issue or more to the point, why just 144 Aventador’s have been affected considering over 1,000 have been built. Nevertheless, the recall is set to begin on December 17, 2012 (today) with the Italian marque set to notify owners who can have the repairs done free of charge at their local Lamborghini dealership.
