What is the issue?

The vehicle weight limit shown on the safety certification label is incorrectly specified as 4630 lbs., with front axle weight limit as 2205 lbs. and the rear axle weight limit as 2535 lbs. The correct values should read for Coupè and Roadster versions as follows:

Centenario Coupè
Vehicle weight limit: 4519 lbs.

Rear axle weight limit: 2491 lbs.

Centenario Roadster
Vehicle weight limit: 4630 lbs.
