Bloomberg News reported the recall included the only three Venenos hardtops sold, which carried a price of about NZ$5.6m plus another nine Veneno Roadsters, originally listed at NZ$6.3m. The luxury super auto that is sold at a price of $4 million is being officially recalled and the owners of these super cars were notified about the step too. This is a rare case for Lamborghini which is known for exceptionally built cars, but what is even more astonishing is the fact that the recall includes one of the rarest cars in the world: the Lamborghini Veneno supercar which costs $4 million.

Owners of the 2012-2017 Lamborghini Aventador in the United States will need to make a stop by their dealer soon for a potentially serious fix. The vehicles have production dates between March 22, 2011 and December 5, 2016. Further analysis revealed that there is a correlation between the said failures and carbon canister saturation.

According to paperwork filed with NHTSA, liquid fuel can get into the system under certain circumstances and cause untreated vapors to come into contact with hot gasses, leading to ignition. Lamborghini said that doing any of these "can generate big flame".

USA owners will be notified by registered mail and can schedule a service appointment at a Lamborghini dealer to upgrade the evaporative system, the company said. This will help in preventing the fuel tank from becoming overfilled. The EVAP system will then be upgraded free of charge.
