Lamborghini have announced that due to certain constraints seen in design and makeup of headlamp, 2012 MY Aventador LP700-4 flagship supercar, the company will be initiating an immediate recall. Automobili Lamborghini SpA is recalling Aventador cars from the 2012 model year which has a starting price of $390,000 so as to correct these flaws in headlights.

As per National Highway Traffic Safety Administration these headlamps do not conform to federal safety standards and hence need to be rectified. 144 Aventador’s manufactured between July 15, 2011 and April 20, 2012 will be recalled as their headlights are aimed horizontally instead of vertically and this may pose a risk to both driver and oncoming motorists. Driver’s visibility may be reduced while oncoming motorist’s vision may be blinded temporarily increasing risk of accident.

Lamborghini will be notifying owners of these particular vehicles and dealers will be informed to rectify the defective headlights free of cost. While filing with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the auto makers stated that they had received a bad batch of headlight assemblies which could not be adjusted vertically. The recall is expected to begin later this month and owners of these particular MY vehicles are requested to contact Lamborghini.
