Cheap hybrid supercar in Vietnam – McLaren Artura – was recalled because of the risk of causing fire

McLaren Artura is being recalled due to problems related to high-pressure fuel pipes that can cause the supercar to catch fire.

McLaren’s newly appointed CEO – Mr. Michael Leiters – ordered Artura deliveries to customers to be stopped a few months ago to fix quality problems. However, the consequences of this hybrid supercar model are still negatively impacting the British car company when the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a recall order for this supercar. There are no less than 164 vehicles that may have this problem and need to go to the dealer to fix the technical problem.

The problem stems from the nuts used for the high-pressure fuel line. Over time, these parts can loosen, leading to fuel leaks. In the worst case, a fire will break out, endangering property and the lives of people around.

Of the 164 recalled cars, McLaren spokesman Roger Ormisher told Automotive News that less than 50 were actually delivered to customers. Most of the affected vehicles are media/event vehicles or are currently being used as demos at dealerships in the United States. To fix the problem, the high-pressure fuel hoses will have to be replaced. And of course, the repair work will be done free of charge.

In early December, McLaren CEO Michael Leiters admitted that underdeveloped products had been brought to market in the past, but no longer were: “We see that the car (Artura) was not complete, so we stopped deliveries. We had a significant delay in our production line at that time and we reduced (production) to zero (cars) per day to fix our quality issues .”
