Lamborghini is recalling 144 units of 2012 Aventador models – built between July 15, 2011 and April 20, 2012 – in the U.S. to fix a problem with the headlights. According to the NHTSA report, the affected vehicles may have headlights that can be aimed horizontally but not vertically.
Problems that this issue can cause include reduced visibility for the driver, and blinding oncoming traffic; both equally dangerous, especially in a wide and low-riding super sports car like the Aventador.
The safety recall is expected to begin on December 17. Lamborghini will notify each owner and arranges for them to have their cars fixed at an authorized dealership where technicians will enable the vertical aiming and disable the horizontal aiming of the headlights. This service is of course free of charge.
