Lamborghini is recalling nine examples of the Countach LPI 800-4 in the USA. The glass panes above the mid-engine are glued improperly.
The American traffic safety authority National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the car manufacturer Lamborghini started a recall campaign on November 17, 2022 in the USA. Nine vehicles of the Countach LPI 800-4 series from model year 2022 are affected.
The problem: The rear glass panes, which are positioned in steps above the mid-engine, can come loose because they were improperly glued. This could pose a hazard on the road and increase the risk of an accident, the NHTSA said. As part of the recall campaign, the glass panes will be checked in a specialist workshop and replaced if necessary.
According to a report, Lamborghini initiated an internal investigation based on a report from Qatar and found the problem. This lies in the assembly process at the supplier C.P.C. Group from Modena. So far, nothing is known about accidents or injuries that could be related to the error.
The following model series is affected by the recall:
Letter of notification to the owners of the affected cars USA are scheduled to ship from January 13, 2023. The recall can be found at NHTSA under case number 22V-848. Lamborghini runs the campaign internally under the code L734-R.01.22.
The official NHTSA document reads about a "worldwide proactive recall". For Germany, however, there is currently no recall; the Federal Motor Transport Authority does not currently list it in its official database. The manufacturer has not yet responded to an inquiry from auto-motor-und-sport.de .
Lamborghini has to improve nine examples of the Countach LPI 800-4 model series. In the vehicles, the glass panes positioned above the central engine could come loose due to incorrect bonding.
