NO RECALL, SAYS FERRARI, JUST AN "INVITATION"
The already rare and limited LaFerrari hypercars are being sent back to service for an update/paint job to the fuel tank. According to Ferrari, the so called "upgrade" is not a recall but just something they may have missed during production.
Ferrari states, "Due to a possible incorrect adhesion of a layer of paint on the fuel tank, some clients have been invited to take their cars to an authorized service center to substitute the fuel tank with a new one with new paint.”
But how many Ferrari's are actually affected?! According to Ferrari, only a limited amount of the fuel tanks are of concern. “The time to change the fuel tank is relatively short and the intervention concerns only a limited number of LaFerraris,” Ferrari said.
However, according to Autoblog.nl, there's more to the story including a fire risk, but more importantly the fact that Ferrari is upgrading the tanks with a non-conducting surface. The accusations seem realistic when a picture of a LaFerrari has already been spotted inside a German shop for servicing of the recent problem.
Maybe Ferrari made too many of the limited LaFerrari and forgot the classic phrase, "quality over quantity."
