Lamborghini recalls 1453 Aventador, Veneno models for fire risk

But owners of certain ultra-rare Lamborghinis are facing such a problem. The luxury super vehicle 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. Lamborghini made just three coupe versions, selling them for $4 million a pop.

Lambo has also said that installing an unapproved aftermarket exhaust system is a real Ve-nono, because there's also a risk of fuel coming into contact with it when the tank is full. This recall includes Aventador-based special edition models, like the Superveloce, as well as the one-off Veneno, of which only 12 exist. The vehicles have production dates between March 22, 2011 and December 5, 2016.

"In case of fuel tank heavily overfilled and in particular handling conditions, liquid fuel could reach the carbon canister" of the evaporative emissions system, Lamborghini's report to NHTSA said.

The Lamborghini Aventador starts at around $400,000 and is powered by a monstrous 6.6-liter V-12 cranking out an impressive 740 horsepower and lays down a 0-62 miles per hour time of just 2.9 seconds. The report states that the problem is exacerbated by "over-revving the engine at idle", and compounded by use of aftermarket exhaust systems, making this a particularly ironic risk profile for Aventador owners.

Aetna and Humana terminate their merger agreement
An Anthem spokeswoman said the company is still committed to closing its deal with Cigna, signaling the breakup could be messy. The deal's demise also ends a related agreement to sell certain Medicare Advantage plans to insurer Molina Healthcare.

Faults in the Aventador's evaporative emissions control system could lead to fuel vapors being treated improperly, Lamborghini said.

The EVAP system upgrade will include a new purge valve that's got higher performance as well as a new roll over valve.

Lamborghini has agreed to notify all owners of affected vehicles who will be instructed to take their auto in to an authorized dealer.
