Ferrari Recalling 85 LaFerraris
Of the recalls seen on a regular basis, million-dollar exotic supercars don't often pop up. But that's exactly what we have on our hands as Ferrari North America and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have issued a pair of recalls for all 85 examples of the flagship LaFerrari hybrid hypercar in the United States.
The second recall involves the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which — in the event of a puncture — will display the wrong message. Instead of telling the driver not to proceed on the punctured tire, as apparently required under federal regulations, the system would (as currently programmed) tell the driver to keep driving, but not above 50 miles per hour. Ferrari dealers will need to update the software to fix the problem.
These recalls do not represent the first time Ferrari has called in the hybrid hypercar over a potential safety issue. This past March, owners were offered the opportunity to have the fuel tanks replaced. However, unlike these latest campaigns that are being handled in coordination with the NHTSA, Ferrari insisted that the previous fuel tank issue did not constitute a recall.
