Why are we contacting You?

Please contact your authorized Lamborghini dealer immediately to schedule an appointment to have this important free repair performed as soon as possible. You can locate your nearest authorized Lamborghini Dealer at https://www.lamborghini.com/en-en/ownership/dealerlocator

 

What is the issue?

The affected vehicles might be equipped with a Manufacturer Certification label that lists an incorrect weight limit. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567.

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.
Front axle weight limit: 2050 lbs.
Rear axle weight limit: 2491 lbs.

Centenario Roadster
Vehicle weight limit: 4630 lbs.
Front axle weight limit: 2094 lbs.
