Lamborghini’s Recalling The Centenario To Fit A New Label

Lamborghini makes more cars today than it ever has before. Seeing those Italian supercars being recalled, though, is still something of a rare occurrence. Especially with the benefit of the Volkswagen Group’s expertise, which has made those Raging Bulls more reliable than ever before. But this is an even rarer situation.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced the recall of the Lamborghini Centenario. Fans of the Bolognese supercars will recognize that name as belonging to a very rare model, built last year to mark what would have been its founder’s 100th birthday.

Though based on the Aventador, the Centenario packed an even more potent engine. The 6.5-liter V12 was upgraded to produce 759 horsepower (566 kW) – even more than the rarer Veneno (which was based on the same), and more than any version of the Aventador to date. (Though we won’t be surprised to see the forthcoming SVJ surpass that figure.) It was said to be able to reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 2.8 seconds, and top out at 217 mph (349 km/h).

To go with the increased output, Lamborghini crafted entirely unique bodywork. And it only built 40 of them: 20 coupes and 20 convertibles. Apparently at least 11 of those ended up in the United States, because that’s how many are being recalled. But there’s nothing seriously wrong with them. They were just fitted with the wrong label, stating an incorrect gross vehicle weight rating. So addressing the issue, fortunately, will involve simply fitting the right label. And the process is already under way.
