Here’s Why the $2.5 Million Pagani Huayra Hypercar Is Being Recalled

Can’t the insanely wealthy catch a break already?


Apparently even certified billionaire status as one of the 32 lucky owners of a Pagani Huayra in the U.S. won’t save you from the annoyance of getting that stupid car recall card in the mail.

It turns out the handcrafted $2.5 million, 789-horsepower V12 hypercar was built with inadequate fasteners on the steering wheel-mounted airbag, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s recall notice.

These fasteners could let the airbag come loose in a crash, preventing it from deploying correctly. Dealers will fix the problem by replacing the fasteners. One imagines this will not occur while the owner endures cable news blaring from a waiting room television.

The recall started August 16, and it shouldn’t take long to get so few cars corrected and safely ensconced back in their vaults.
