Recall

Lamborghini Recalls 1,500 Gallardos

The 2004-’06 Gallardo has some leaky hoses that could, given the wrong conditions, cause a fire.

For the lucky few that are able to afford an expensive exotic like the Lamborghini Gallardo, the last thing you would want to happen is for it to catch fire. Lamborghini has just informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration - part of the U.S. Department of Transportation - that Gallardo models built between the years 2004 and 2006 pose a fire hazard. As a result, the Italian automaker has recalled the entire model line of its angular supercar, of which it sold 1,491 units during that period.

According to the NHTSA's official report, "In certain driving conditions, the high pressure steering pipes near the steering assistance hydraulic system pump might leak." The consequence of said leak is that the fluid could hit the Italian supercar's V10 engine, potentially resulting in a fire. Which would be rather unfortunate in a car that costs upwards of $200,000, so owners had better be safe than sorry.
