Chronology :

Lamborghini received on October 10th 2022 one field report from Qatar market concerning a possible issue with one of the four glass panels on the rear bonnet of the model Countach MY22 through its Authorized Dealer Network. No other problem was reported from any other market.

Lamborghini started a thorough investigation involving the supplier of rear bonnet in an effort to determine a root cause.

On October 25th 2022, Lamborghini after internal analysis and testing found that the defect was caused by an error in supplier’s assembly phase concerning the bonding of the glass panel. Lamborghini determined that it is not possible to exclude that other panels could fully detach from the rear bonnet, thereby potentially creating a road hazard.

The outcome of the investigation was presented to the Lamborghini Product Safety Committee on November 10th 2022 which decided unanimously to launch a proactive recall campaign worldwide. Lamborghini has not received any reports of a crash or injury due to this topic.
