Lamborghini Centenario Recalled In The US For Something Very Minor

Recall / 1 Comment

A grand total of 11 examples made their way stateside.

Lamborghini built just 40 examples of the Aventador-based Centenario, 20 coupes and 20 roadsters. Created as part of last year's 100th birthday celebration of Lamborghini founder Ferrucio Lamborghini, the Centenario features exclusive bodywork and an even more powerful version of the Aventador's 6.5-liter V12, upgraded to 759 hp. The Aventador S, by comparison, has 730 hp. The Centenario offers the most powerful version of this V12 to date, but we fully expect to see the upcoming ultimate Aventador, the SVJ, beat that number.


But as first discovered by Carscoops, the Lamborghini Centenario is, believe it or not, being recalled in the US. Last month, the National Highway Transportation Safety Board issued a recall for the grand total of 11 units that made their way to the US. The problem? They were fitted with the wrong GVWR label, which stands for Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. In other words, the label incorrectly states the vehicle's weight. Mechanically speaking, the Centenario is working just fine. Given the Centenario's rarity, owners understandably pay extra attention to their cars, making sure everything is as perfect as possible. Having the correct GVWR label applies to that.

Although it doesn't explicitly state so in the recall order, it's fair to assume Lamborghini dealerships will replace the label free of charge, as is the case with any factory recall no matter the reason. Then again, it may be worth it for Centenario owners to request to keep the original, incorrect label, assuming it's legal to do so, for collector purposes. Who knows? Retaining the original label, like with a window sticker, may, one day, help increase the Centenario's value.
