Lamborghini recall - possible fuel leakage !

Try connecting the two objects in the photo !!! 

There is so much to read about and in advanced Countries, safety is always considered most important.  The naming patterns are often unique.  Lamborghini Gallardo in news,  is a sports car built by Lamborghini and its most-produced model to date, with over 10,000 built in its first seven years of production.  The car is named after a famous breed of fighting bull. 

Grapes – ‘Viticulture’ is the science, production and study of grapes which deals with the series of events that occur in the vineyard. When the grapes are used for winemaking, it is also known as viniculture. It is a branch of the science of horticulture.

Ferruccio Elio Arturo Lamborghini (1916 – 1993) was an Italian industrialist. Born to grape farmers, his mechanical know-how led him to enter the business of tractor manufacturing in 1948, when he founded Lamborghini Trattori, which quickly became an important manufacturer of agricultural equipment in the midst of Italy's post-war economic reform. From there he moved on to become the manufacturer of high-end sports car.  After growing so high, he is reported to have  sold off  many of his interests by the late 1970s and retired to an estate in Umbria, where he pursued winemaking. The firm's ownership changed three times after 1973, including a bankruptcy in 1978, before Chrysler Corporation took control in 1987.

Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., commonly referred to as Lamborghini,  designs, engineers, manufactures and distributes luxury sports cars.  Its  production facility and headquarters are located in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy.

Gallardo - above and Spyder on right

The news is that  Lamborghini is recalling some Gallardo models because power steering fluid can leak and catch fire. The recall affects about 1,500 Gallardo Coupe and Spyder autos, from model years 2004 to 2006. 

The cars start at about $200,000. Lamborghini says in documents sent to U.S. safety regulators that pipes can corrode near the power steering pump. In rare cases, fluid can leak onto the hot engine and cause a fire. The company says it discovered the problem in product monitoring and testing. No fires or injuries have been reported. The cars were built from May of 2003 through April of 2008.

Owners will be notified this month. Dealers will update the power steering system free of charge.

A Lamborghini on Indian road is a rarity; the recall is no news to us perhaps
