The Pagani Huayra is powerful, fast, a work of art—and not immune to recalls, either, as it turns out.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a recall on August 16 on Huyaras made between April 21, 2014, to July 29, 2016. About 32 cars were affected. The reason:
In the affected vehicles, the driver side frontal air bag may not remain adequately secured to the steering wheel during deployment, and therefore the air bag may deploy improperly.
Improper deployment of the driver frontal air bag can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Pagani has notified owners, and dealers will change the fasteners on the steering wheel air bag assembly, free of charge.
I’m sorry, I just can’t stop images of airbags launching themselves out of the steering wheel at surprised driver’s faces from running through my brain. More realistically, though, it’s probably like if the airbag deploys, it deploys crooked or something.
Pagani says that the fix will only take about 30 minutes. That’s enough time to, like, buy and sell some stocks for a few million dollars. I don’t know. What do Huayra owners do in their free time?
