Lamborghini Countach, the first recall campaign launched

Lamborghini Countach

Lamborghini has recently formalized the recall campaign for the new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4; unfortunately this is a potentially very dangerous problem related to the glass panels that cover the V12 engine installed in the car – the material used to fix the glass panels risks being damaged prematurely, causing the glass to detach in motion with potential consequences catastrophic for those following.

The documents published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration speak very clearly: the rear glass panels risk detaching from the moving car, thus creating a danger for the road and for all those behind the new Countach.

Fortunately, at least for now, there has only been one episode of this type and in that case there have been no injuries or serious accidents: the episode took place in Qatar, where the owner of the new Lamborghini Countach lost one of the glass panels on the street last October. Following this episode, Lamborghini promptly launched an investigation: the defect was allegedly caused by an error by one of the company's suppliers, the one who supplies the material used to fix the windows to the car.

Following internal investigations, Lamborghini realized the potential danger that all the owners of the new Countach are running, as well as all the people who pass one on the street, and this led to the start of the recall campaign: starting from January 13, Lamborghini will contact all owners of the new Countach asking them to take the car to the workshop for an inspection, so that the glass can be removed if necessary to fix it again correctly.
