The most popular Lamborghini model to date, the Gallardo, is recalled due to potential fluid leak from the power steering hoses. These unlucky units are built between 2004 to 2006 and both the Gallardo Coupe and Spyder body styles are involved. The recall began in Australia, followed by Canada and now in the U.S. About 1,491 units are affected in the U.S.
According to Lamborghini, high pressure hoses for the hydraulic-assisted power steering system may leak under certain driving conditions. Should this occur, a fire could break out if the fluid comes into contact with an ignition source.
Lamborghini is notifying the affected owners, who can take their Gallardos to their dealers for repairs at no charge.
The car is named after a famous breed of fighting bull and represented to many the smaller version of the Murcielago. The ‘Singapore Limited Edition’ is a ten-unit limited version of Gallardo LP 550-2 in Singapore, celebrating 10 years of Lamborghini's presence in the Lion City.
Luckily for these 10 owners, their precious rides are not in the affected list as they were introduced in 2011. The LP 550-2 is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine with 542bhp and 540Nm of torque.The Singapore Limited Edition
