Recall roundup: Ferrari LaFerrari in two separate campaigns image

Ferrari has recently issued not one but two recalls covering its most powerful and expensive model ever, the LaFerrari.

According to the Maranello based automaker, the first recall has been announced because of the headrests, which have a problem in case of an impact because the “may not absorb the required amount of energy”. This means that owners of the vehicles will be notified by Ferrari and the company’s dealers will be replacing the headrests, free of charge.

The second recall which is affecting the Ferrari LaFerrari is involving the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which might display the wrong message in the event of a puncture. This means that the driver will be “told” to keep driving instead of pulling over. The carmaker’s dealers will be updating the software on the affected vehicles in order to fix the problem.

The Ferrari LaFerrari is a hybrid hypercar shown back in 2013, at the Geneva Motor Show, in its final production form. The exotic ride has a mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout and it has been put together in just 499 units, in Maranello. Power to it is being provided by a 6.3L V12 engine and a HY-KERS unit, producing a total output of 950 HP (708 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to this configuration, the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is made in less than 3 seconds and top speed stands at 350 km/h (217 mph).
