Lamborghini is recalling 5,900 of its sports cars over a fire risk, including its $4 million Veneno supercar.

One of the rarest and most coveted cars in the world, only 12 Venenos were ever sold. Lamborghini made just three coupe versions, selling them for $4 million a pop. The other nine were open-top Veneno Roadsters that sold for $4.5 million.

Volkswagen (VOW3-DE)-owned Lamborghini said that under certain conditions, there is a risk of fire from the vehicles' exhaust. It isn't aware of any injury to drivers or passengers from the issue, the company said.

Owners are being notified and asked to contact an authorized Lamborghini dealer or service point to have the evaporative emission control (EVAP) systems upgraded to the latest version.

In addition to the Veneno, Lamborghini's voluntary recall applies to its Aventador Coupes, Roadsters and Aventador Js from model years 2012 to 2017.

With its menacing, space-age design and monster engine, the Aventador is one of the most celebrated sports cars in the world, especially among younger car fans. The sticker price is more than $400,000.
