The reincarnation of the Lamborghini Countach was recalled last week due to a problem with the car’s glass engine cover, according to a statement from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Lamborghini was notified by an owner in Qatar on Oct. 10 that one of the four glass panels on the Countach’s engine cover had separated from the supercar while in motion, NHTSA said in a statement. These glass panels are above with electronic assistance A 6.5-liter V-12 engine that delivers a total powertrain output of 803 hp. and 557 lb-ft of torque.
The incident prompted Lamborghini to launch an investigation, which ultimately determined that a problem with the parts supplier was to blame. More specifically, Lamborghini concluded that the fault was due to a problem with the supplier’s gluing of the glass panels, which could cause the panels to detach and exit the vehicle.
The new Countach is capable of hitting 62 mph from a standstill in just 2.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 221 mph. Not exactly the kind of speed you’d want to have when dealing with a poorly anchored body.
During the initial investigation, Lamborgnini was unable to determine whether other examples of the Countach would suffer from the same manufacturing error. On November 10, Lamborghini’s Product Safety Committee voted to initiate an active recall of the Countach in all global markets. This recall will affect nine owners here in the United States, and dealers are expected to receive recall details on January 9, 2023. Customers will receive a notification from Lamborghini later this week. Customers’ vehicles will then be inspected and replacement glass panels will be available if required. Every Countach built in October 2022 will already have a solution in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
Owning an exclusive supercar can come with some unique challenges. Fortunately for the Lamborghini faithful, this particular fix should be a simple job. If you have one of these things, it might be a good idea to leave it in the garage for a while. It’s not like you’re going to be piling on the miles anyway.
