Lamborghini Aventador SVJ recalled over 'entrapment risk'

Lamborghini has issued a voluntary global recall of 2020 Aventador SVJ Coupe and Roadster models for a fault with the vehicles' internal door mechanisms that could see owners trapped inside their own cars. According to the Italian car maker, approximately 77 vehicles have been affected worldwide, none of them in Australia. The fault pertains to an error made in the vehicles' assembly which could lead to the cars' internal door handles becoming dysfunctional.

Rather this test car is simply being used as an elaborate disguise before the SUV-bodied mules are built.
