Lamborghini Issues Aventador Recall

Problems with the Aventador's headlights have prompted Lamborghini to issue a recall on 144 examples of the supercar.

With nearly 700 horsepower on tap from a 6.5-liter V12 enabling a sub-three-second 0-60 time, it's hard to find fault with Lamborghini Aventador. But the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has identified a problem with the flagship Raging Bull, prompting the government body to issue a recall. The trouble apparently revolves around the Aventador's headlights, which can be adjusted horizontally, but not vertically. Misaimed headlights can reduce visibility at night and possibly blind oncoming motorists.

As a result, Lamborghini has issued a recall for Aventadors built between July 15, 2011 and April 20, 2012. With such limited production, the problem reportedly only affects 144 units, the owners of which are being encouraged to bring their cars into their local Lambo dealership for a quick fix. The headlights may not be the only problem with the Aventador, though. Word has it that the Independent Shift-Rod transmission that Lamborghini has developed for the Aventador has not performed as well as planned, so parent company Audi could be stepping in to replace it with a dual-clutch unit like the one recently developed for the R8.
