Lamborghini Is Recalling the Aventador SVJ Because It Might Trap You Inside

If you need to get around a track as quickly as possible, the current Nürburgring production car lap record holder is a good pick. With its trick Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) active aerodynamic system setup, a massive V-12, and four-wheel drive, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ will charge around a circuit faster than just about anything else on the road. Try to get out when the lap's over, though, and you may run into problems.

According to a recall submitted March 18, 26 of the 2020 Aventador SVJ Coupes and Roadsters are subject to a premature interior door handle failure. While the exterior door handles and windows aren't susceptible to this problem, it still poses a so-called "entrapment risk" to owners, like if they get in without their keys.

As Motor1 spotted in the NHTSA filings, this is all the new kid's fault. Lamborghini reportedly identified the problem as stemming from an improperly trained worker at the factory. "During the assembly a non properly trained new operator may have not correctly engaged the bowden cable pin inside the internal door handles," the company wrote.

Because there is no warning of an impending failure before it happens, recalled vehicles will have their entire interior door release mechanism replaced. If you own a Aventador SVJ built between December 3, 2019 and January 22, 2020, Lamborghini will be in touch.
