According to new reports, Ferrari has issued a recall for the LaFerrarihybrid hypercar apparently due to a fire hazard.
These reports suggest that the Ferrari LaFerrari’s recall relates to its paint rather than being a mechanical issue. If the recall is indeed true, it wouldn’t be the first time Ferrari has recalled a model due to a fire risk. Not long after the Ferrari 458 Italia launched, the Italian supercar was recalled after a spate of fires around the world.
Interestingly, Ferrari has yet to issue a statement regarding the recall and is actually denying that such a recall is underway. Some reports however claim that a special new electrical non-conducting coating is being applied to the fuel tank with the repairs apparently taking a couple of weeks to complete on each LaFerrari model.

That delivers a total combined power output of 950 hp.
