Lamborghini has just announced that it will be recalling no less than 144 Aventador LP700-4’s manufactured between July 15, 2011 and April 20, 2012 after discovering that some units may have headlights issues.
Although the recall is only voluntary at this stage, Lamborghini believes that the lights fitted to some Aventador’s fail to conform to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard test number 108 (“Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment”) as the affected headlights can only be aimed horizontally rather than vertically.
And just like with poorly fitted HID’s, this can distract oncoming traffic and limit driver visibility at night if the lights are not correctly focused at the road.
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 with the Italian marque set to notify owners who can have the repairs done free of charge at their local Lamborghini dealership.
