doyou’re owner of a Lamborghini Aventador; marketed between 2012 and 2017? We are sorry to communicate that we are not welcome news. And it not only affects the versions “conventional”.
Are 1.453 units of this stunning supercar which will have to spend to fix a problem is potentially serious. So send the National Security Administration Highway Traffic safety administration (NHTSA).
After having carried out a series of tests, NHTSA has decided to withdraw from the market several units of the Lamborghini Aventador, which include editions as special as the Miura a homage, the Pirelli Edition, or the Super Veloce.
in Addition, due to the amount of mechanical parts in common with the Aventador; it also be affected another icon of the brand’s “toro bravo”; the Poison, both in its Coupe version as in the Roadster. But… What has happened to these versions so valuable?
apparently, there is a probability that in the event that you experience an overfilling of the fuel tank (as opposed to a series of specific conditions), the fuel could reach the carbon filter system evaporative emissions (saturating gas).
consequently, high speed, would allow the gases from the fuel come in contact with the hot air exhaust. This could cause a fire in the engine, especially in the case of installing a modified exhaust.
This is not the first time that happens. In 2015, the Lamborghini was reported to have found exactly the same problem in the reports of their engines. Even in 2016, it was known that some model melted the grills and the rear lights due to the heat of the exhaust.
For correction, has completely changed all the system that produced the emissions of fuel vapors and has improved the functioning of the valve that is responsible for preventing the overfilling of the gas tank.
Fortunately, the owners of the “old continent” are in for a treat. These cases have only occurred in the united States. So there was only another call to fix for the Aventador. It happened in 2012, affected 144 models and it was due to a mismatch in the vertical alignment of the headlights.
